Default 997 GT3 Cup Style Fenders for 996

Hey everyone. I just wanted to show off a little something that I've been working on for my car. I really like the design of the 997.2 Cup flares, and wanted some more space for width up front without trying to cram wheels and play with risky fitments. I have taken the OEM GT3 Cup flares and HEAVILY modified them to fit the 996 fenders and GT2 front bumper. It was an extremely tedious process, and I would not recommend that someone attempt to replicate the same process. They're about 90% complete, and I plan on having them sent out to have molds made very soon. The result is somewhere between 30-35mm of increased width after the fenders are cut, and a very aggressive look. I also will be making the flare for a Turbo bumper and Carrera bumper for friends of mine as well. Let me know what you all think! Thanks for your time and enjoy the pictures.

I like it. A lot. If I had my C4S still I'd definitely be wanting a set.

Just an update guys! Here are the completed, painted flares. I think they came out gorgeous, and the finished result is far better looking than just primer contrasting the Mexico Blue paint. I would love feedback and any interest. Dont worry, the fenders cleaned up fine, just some surface scratches, tape residue and sharpie lines. Enjoy!
