    Ok, this sucks, the reason I decided to still narrow the rear and KEEP the rear panels on is so it still had the " i was a k5" look, but now i dunno, with them pulled in they sit directly over the meats and only have like 9" of room beetween so I have to cut them more and there wont be much left of the panel /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
    anyone else notice this?

    space for everything got better in my case. More room for long shocks and hoops to hang them front and back along with some space to lower. I may have to trim some more fender but I would have probably had to do that anyway.

    I had to cut mine way up. I cut them all the way up to the inner fender.

    Had to cut lots off of the front.
