Personally, I think it's a good idea executed very poorly. They made almost no effort to use the lines of the orignal car. What would have looked better would have been to take the wide body and bring it all the way up to where the box naturally gets wider, at the top of the doors. Also they should have used a front end more like the JP kit, then it would still be square, but wider and sick.

in my opinion that thing is nasty....
Do you think that if they did what I said it would look better or is it beyond saving?

I like it b/c its different, but I can't decide if I really like it...:confused:
Different doesn't always mean better....;)

I know this sounds weird....but try writing/putting into words what you like/don't like about it. That's what I do when I'm confused. It helps me materialize my thoughts and helps make my ideas concrete.

I do kinda wish they had used the lines of the xB... That is where my problem lies. I'm not sure I have seen the JP kit. Maybe I will check into getting a one off piece done...

Ths is exactly what I was thinking looking at the pictures; Good idea, bad execution. A box-fender style widebody (VW Golf Rallye, Audi 80 IMSA-GTO, BMW M3 E30, etc.) would really be cool, but they didn't try hard enough on this.

Are there anymore widebodys? If not, i'm just gonna go with a F1 or a k1. Cheap and easy to put on...I wonder if any of the body shops around here could make me a one off widebody out of a regular kit...:confused:
