What front fenders are those? They look like the hot wheels version. Not a fan of the paint scheme but really like those fenders!


*Edit- Took a second look, looks like the entire body kit is Hot Wheels. Wow, fitment doesn't look to bad.

The whole kit is hot wheels. The fitment was insanely horrible until my buddy got ahold of it. 350hrs of body work and the kit fits.

Wow, fitment was that bad? I remember when Hot Wheels first debut their kit on a Camaro..

Which parts were the worst fitting? I was thinking about taking a chance and buying just the fenders,... but I think I may reconsider if you say it was that horrible.

He had to split the front and rear bumper in two places to resize them to fit the car. Every single piece had three mount holes or points that didn't line up with any of the OEM mounts. He ended up cutting the mounting portions of the sides kirts and fenders and molding them onto the kit. Then to top it all off the duraflex doesn't flex at all and it hairline cracked every time he took a piece on and off for fitment which he had to repair each time. 5 gallons of resin and yards of glass later the kit fit.

Here are the pics of the fender fit.
