Widen the body up

i was thinking of changing my front accord car to an R34 Skyline conversion - almost fits perfectly - or widen my body by just buyin the SKyline side fenders or is there other ways to widen, AND since my frontsides gonna be widen... how do i widen the backside of my car?? imma keep my backtailights... too much work if i convert it to sumthing else. help me out. thanks

Im holding up my cash for any suggestion if i can do it cheaper... just wanted to widen my body. My friend in Cali hah wrecked his R34 and i asked to buy his front body parts. some ricer hit him in the back, nice job!

IMHO, forget the conversion. The Accord is not a Skyline. Maybe wide body, a respectable body shop can do it. I remeber getting a quote for a wide body for about 2 g. very expensive.

Oh...the baby blue skyline accord girl that some peepz on av6 scared away 2years ago?

Yah....you wouldn't want to copy her...

Maybe you should just widen the fenders using molded fender flares.

I'm pretty sure its fiberglass. I seen there wide body and don't recall seeing and traces of metal well maybe the fender flare.

yeah I gave the a design I wanted very similar to Erica's wide body. but I back out hmmmm maybe she stole my idea.

Is it Very dificult to do a custom widebody?

Like if i gave them a drawing of how i wnated my car to look like, is it a VERY difficult job? I kno it depends on the bodyshop, but lets j/say ur average bodyshop..

I can't tell. The shop I went to was ViS and they have done wide body before. I would take it to someone thats has done a few wide body job but thats my opinion.
