Been a while since last update.

996 turbo wide body project is back from the body shop. Rear bumper/fenders/side skirt from AIR fit reasonably well (from what i can tell, it's a cast/mould off a kit commonly used on GT2-R Biturbo race cars), but the front kit, in-house from AIR did not fit well with headlights. Not saying it's impossible to work around, there's couple boxsters that have fit this kit that i have found online, (green track boxster with AIR wide GT2 front end think images are on this thread). Heard GT3RSR fenders face similar challenges fitting street headlamps. The other issue is the gas cap and tunnel... not straight forward.

Have chosen another route. Started fabricating a custom metal front fender extension to graft to the OEM piece. Each piece is hand shaped (hammer/anvil) from 1.2mm sheet metal. Will modify gas tunnel and cap so it works as standard, and flush with fender. Might need to use funnel at gas station.

Lazy to upload photos here, have updated a FB post. Lots of small details and issues not covered, if there's anyone interested in doing similar email me at [email protected]. Will do my best to share & help.

Hi,
This is how my RSR kit looks like.
It is built by DP-Motorsport In Germany, and its quit good integrated an well performed.

That DP body kit is the best i have seen so far. I would like to see GT3 RSR head light openings in the fenders.

How much is that kit?

hi,
I do not know, the bodywork was already built when i bought the car.
The RSR kit was built around 07-08 I'll guess.
