Reasonably priced FC Widebody options?

Hi all. I've been trying to get a Tri-point engineering FC widebody kit for the last while without luck. After a few phone calls and non-returned E-mails I've given up on them. Are there any other widebody options out there at a reasonable cost?

I had the coolest idea today while i was checking out an old supra.

80's supra fender flares!

like so

Mariah is expensive, he said reasonably priced. There's often wide fenders on eBay.

www.raceonusa.com makes tripoint replica fenders, they used to have them on ebay and on their site but I dont know if they stopped making them, your best bet is to call them directly. I have their front fenders and a friend of mine has both front and rear from them along with the RE2000 front bumper from them.

the other option is the 50mm rear flares from version select (I think?).

Mariah's customer service sucks and a friend of mine got their front fenders and the fiberglass/filler was garbage on them.

AWR makes widebody panels but they are not cheap... they are available thru AWR and MazdaCompetiton.

Not bad at all, anyone have any experience with mounting ease and fit/finish? Price is reasonable and they look great in the pictures.

I've only run the ones from iscracing.net and now I have a full set of custom pieces made by a fellow racer.

Even though this is posted in the race section I have to ask, Are you looking for race quality parts or street quality parts? If you want race stuff PM me, I share a shop with a guy that has molds for the four corners, hood,and hatch or 'vert deck lid. You'll probably have a bunch for shipping from anybody so keep that in mind.

My custom widebody is being replicated in a very small batch. Definately the widest out there.
