: anyone have experience with wide body kit? looking to buy the ac snitzer one. how hard is it to install? any sheet metal need to be cut? thank

Are you talking about the Schnitzer-style (not AC, but Schnitzer as in the team that raced 02s in the 70's) one that Korman sells? I'm not aware of any actual AC Schnitzer stuff for our cars, but I could be wrong.

Anyways, that said, if you are talking about the Schnitzer-style flares that Korman sells, I have them on my 02 racer. I don't think I'd put them on a street car -- the fit is not very precise (the front fenders are a little too long -- they don't match-up with the nose piece). Take a look HERE to see some pics of my car at the last race.

For the rear, I riveted them on (like the factory did for the CSLs) -- for a street car, you might like to actually blend them with putty. If you want to run wider wheels in back, you'll need to cut-out the wheel arches, and then weld the inner and outer pieces back together (this is structural, and important). Do not cut-out the entire rear quarter panel, as it, too, is structural, and important.

Good luck,
