    Hi all,

    This is my last car to build for the adult class basically Box Stock rules. Thoughts on these fenders? Thoughts on how low they are. Should I try to drill out the mid fenders to lighten them up? I'm worried about whether or not they will clear the track.

    Fenders look great! The only thing you might want to check out is the underside of your dfw. I’d suggest you cut it back enough to make sure it doesn’t make contact with the rail

    It's not letting me post and I just took a 3mp picture.... I don't get it... I'm trying to show the sides and bottom.

    It is telling me the size is too large.

    Did you try a smaller photo. I just email myself the photo and select small or medium size photo and upload that one

    If you are using a phone to take the pictures, you may be able to lower the resolution or MP of your photos in your camera settings.

    There are also many apps that will resize photos. Paint on windows machines has a resize option as well.

    Just make sure the fenders cant touch the rail ever.
