Default looking for 1.5 inch wider rear fenders

I have looked around for some and mostly found the 2" and .75. Not interested in the 2" fenders. I only need 1.5 on the outside. Thinking of taking the brakes and wheels off my C4 and putting them to use on a FRC...

I wish I had 1.5 fenders now that I see what my 2 inch ones look like. I have a C5 widebody.

What makes it bad for me is I need mini tubs along with the fenders due to width and offset.

I can't find what I need

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe Lewis 5 makes custom sizes.

I'd look them up and give them a call.

The pics they just recieved is of our car. Bowling Green vert with tan top. The rear quarters are 1 1/4" wider than stock. You can search Jetmech and find pictures I have posted on the forum. We just finished the car about a month ago.

Thanks we like the look of the car. I must say it was cheaper than a new grand sport. Plus it is paid for.

Nice wheels and car! The wheels is what started it for me as you probably read in my posts. What is that vague statement? It's only money, and maybe it is but I still like to hang on to some of mine!
Good luck with your build!
