So I recently purchased a 240z that was apparently worked on... the guy I bought it from seems like a genuine guy when he told me he has cut and replaced all the rust on the car. ( his attention to detail seems a little rushed lol.. and his weld are...rough lol) Nonetheless, I am happy. One thing I do not like... and wish I could modify with ease... is the molded fenders. They don't look right on the car. I don't know if its the offset of the wheels (9.5 in the rear) ... or the shape of them? .... or the stock height? Something looks ...not cool.
When asked, he told me he fiber-glassed the panel after he cut the rust off. He did this by applying the glass on the fender directly, then on the backside of the fenders. He sandwiched them, and added some screws. After it dried, he removed screws and applied filler/resin/glass, whatever and shaped them.
I am contemplating just removing them, but I am scared that too much of the body was cut? I don't want to end up worse than what it is (at least not right now - maybe later). Can someone provide any comments regarding the height of the cut/fender? is it too low? too high? I am looking into ZG flares. I dont want to be screwed with not having the proper fitment for ZG flares, or equivilant. Maybe I can get away with trimming/shaping these? I plan on lowering the car on coilovers and possibly new wheels. (may do 5 lug)
