(it's so pathetic that I have to do this; I HATE people that can't take responsibility for their own actions!)
This is ONLY documentation for my own project car. Should anyone decide to copy, emulate, or in any other way reproduce my ideas and/or methods, I bear NO RESPONSIBILITY for your actions. This is not a snap-tite model. There are no (quality) pre-fab kits out there that make it an easy 1-2-3 to do this conversion. This is custom work, and as such, is every bit as much art as it is science. Please ALWAYS think through what you're going to do before taking action, and PLEASE, Safety First!

Day 9 - Final alignments (fenders), starting to prep for paint, Final weights

So today I finished up the alignment of the fenders as best I could, and I plan to drive around as-is for a few weeks, as parts tend to "settle" after they've been on for several miles. Pix below are after the "break-in". Note there are now proper spacers up front to compensate for the wider fenders, and the rear still needs a roll/pull for the FN01R-Cs, also the sidemarkers are on! YAY! :)

Also, here are the final tallies for the New vs. Old part weights:
