I found the foam/mat video and it looks doable by mere mortals with some practice.  Pretty cool.

Now at the Island Of Misfit Toys Annex. You can see the Notchback Volare in the background. 

Still haven't seen the car in person; my dad's wake is tomorrow, we are trying to straighten out some way to care for my mother, and still trying to get my wife's parents' house prepared to put it up for sale this week. 

 

 

 

 

 

To be clear, I have absolutely zero interest in hacking the outer body shell by adding overfemfers to it. It will fit plenty of tire for my purposes as it sits. Perhaps those links need their own thread.

I'm all for you realizing your best vision for this car... and keeping the fenders original.  Please continue when/as you're able.

I will say that 295/50/15 will clear stock fenders,  barely. 235/60 and 275/60 on 15x7 mopar wheels with cop center caps looks fantastic though

I'm leaning towards using the wheel and tire combo off the Tan Panther for street use.  It's a big and little combo with Torq Thrust Ds, and it really belongs on the Spirit more than the wagon.

Tough call, that wagon is rad as-is too!

It looks pretty good, but the looks aren't backed up by any performance, and I want to put some colormatched 17" steelies off the D100 on it. 



(Trust me, there are 17" steel wheels under those hubcaps, and they will be colormatched to the Tan Panther before they get swapped.)
 

 

 

And don't feel bad for the D100, as I already have a set of American Racing Salt Flats waiting in the wings, as well.
