Ooooh it TIME, baby

So I got like (3/32") of clearance under a full load, and a NICE 3" past the fender to crank away at... (But Oh my GOD these are going to look DOPE!)

(-5).... Yea.... That's not gonna work.. Looks like Marty McFly it is... Crank on...

........ Now it is 110 out here... And its been a few hours, so my be I'm a little loopy... But I have them all the arm all the may maxed out..... And the wheel seams to be "turning" off to the side now.....

Yea... THE is pointing off to the right... Not "up"

... What the hell man??? I thought you guys where made for that?

I did more research and found that this series is made to "correct" camber... Given the specs where similar with ever set of arms I found, I baught some other $50 abbreviated brand of camber arm that had a 45 bend in it... I thought maybe that's where I went wrong

So a week went by, and they got here... Popped them on... NOPE the 45 bend didn't may any difference at all....


.... Well, now what... Its been a few days and I'm just moping around looking in the room at my... None applicable "collection", suffering from severe buyer's remorse

I started looking into what the guys with wacky camber did to get their wheels the lean like that... "All custom work". Work I was not mentally or financially prepared to get into. Plus these tires are like $360 each... And you guys go through tires every other "month"?... Bruh.

The only real way for that not to happen is for my tires to remain "flat" on the ground. And function wise, that seems FAR more ideal for me. This being my daily driver and all... Iv been in enough accidents in the last 5 years as it is.. I don't have very many bones left to break... But with a (3") lip to tuck... I'm probably going to have to go wide body. And if I have to go with that damn "venom" kit, I'm gonna blow my brains out.

Then the urban phenomenon called "Rocket bunny" popped up as the only practical solution. But that is just as played out as that venom kit.

Theres always "flares". But I have never seen a wide body "flare kit" work on a Z before. One that "looked" good anyway.

Then like a becan of light in a bleak abiss of despair... This VW Passat pops up on my search field, I went to the gallery it was in.. All text in Russian, links and all. So I just started clicking on them and stumbled into the site called "clinched"
And BOOM, there it is ... Perfection

Wait a minute...what did you purchase exactly? It appears you are trying to use toe arms where your camber arms should be...

I ordered 2 sets (front and rear)
....

Sigh wide body it is...

So with the Z33 body being pretty wide as it is, I started looking for other Z's with none venom or rocket bunny kits... I only found "1"... And it isnt done yet.

So if I can get this done fast enough, I will been the second of "2" Z's out there with a Clinched wide body flare.

Furthermore, even if I'm not for long... They are 1 universal and 2 fully modifiable. So its lot like some one is gonna be exactly like mine any time soon.

It beats trying to pull the my fenders all the way out and still look like I failed.

I LOVE the look of the J's racing type GT fenders on the S2000 and I did more searching around and found that... That don't make them for the Z. >:/

Then I ran into a guy @jarrad_(IG)... Who made his own. They looked SOO I'll, and he said he would make some for me for a decent price.

But after I bought a second set of fenders and got them shipped to me... They tried to charge me $250 (each way)... So I had to flake...

But my a friend of mine swore he could make some EZ... and I had nothing to loose at this point... So the second chapter of my project began...

No, they are camber arms. Toe arms are a few inches shorter

So it looks like a 2" vent will look pretty good... Plus it going to jump to a 7" scoop after the tire gets on

So I went 7" in from the door side to give it a square 7" vent

For a cat that does 0 work with metal, I thin it measures up very well.

But I think I'm going to have to cut the front of that fender arch back even with the vent plate... I can't risk rubbing...

Jesus I think my 245s look too stretched on my 9.5 wheel... Sooo why didn't you just raise your suspension a wee bit in the back so you could use your new baller *** wheels?

And now im going to go look at my camber arms and see if they look the same.

Well like I said, I wanted and aggressive look, without having to lean like the Pisa.

And for my wheels to stay flat, I'd have to go wide body.
