Project SC300 Road Racer: Part 25 – WIDEST IS BESTEST!

When we left the SC300 just about the entire KBD body kit was installed. Now we’re in the home stretch! Rear quarters, side skirts and done, right? I hope so.

The rear quarter is a big, floppy piece and is a bit awkward to deal with.

Because it’s so large, you can’t really see all of it at once, and you definitely can’t see both sides of the car at once. It takes a lot of slight adjustments to get it just right. Bryson was paying really close attention to the detail of things like equal gaps in all areas.

It might look crude, but it’s effective.

Where’s Tom? He would be in heaven! So many holes to drill.

  1. Rather than the rubber nut dealies you used to secure the skirts, have you considered using rivnuts as a more fabricated and permanent solution?
