Default wide body front parts?

If I don't sell my car in May, I'm pondering some further upgrades over this year. If I decide to do a widebody front, are the Eckler's corvette fiberglass parts nice? are they flexible like I can still access my methanol pump and tank behind the fender?
If that's a no...who do you recommend? I really want the ZR1 style gills but I don't want to buy Carbon Fiber OE parts ($$$). Aftermarket carbon is fine but it's not going to flex I wouldn't think...right? Gut instinct is that it will be a GM front bumper though just to play it safe.

Mine are the ZR1 style from Don at SS-Vette. I have had them for about 10 years or so now. Fit like OEM. I went with OEM Bumper and rear quarters.

This was right out of the well packaged box


I just did my front over with the ACI fenders and the OEM bumper. While the surface of the fenders was near perfect, the edges were horrible. I previously had the Zr1 fenders from Don Claus at SS Vettes. Their fit/finish was much better.
