Update: 23-Oct-2013: First cuts to the car commence, no turning back now :S New inner guards will be made to mate to the widebody, ensuring that no dirt/dust/mud/rust can get into the guards. Rear windows removed as well, since half the car will need to be repainted.

Update: 24-Oct-2013: Inner guards have been mocked up and will be made and attached later (first pic shows this). Widebody guard bolted/riveted/glued onto the panel, panels being sanded and prepped ready to mold the widebody into the factory panels. New inner guard fabricated.

Update: 25-Oct-2013: Another visit to Cameron's Body works saw the latest update to the car.. Also finally got around to grabbing the pics from my Digital SLR camera, so some of these pics are from earlier this week. Inner guards have been made, from metal, seam welded and sealed with rubber sealant (like factory seal sealant). These will be made flush with the rocket bunny flares. The rear diffuser is getting modified by Monkey Garage to accommodate the factory style reverse/foglight combination, rather than the Rocket Bunny reflectors and tiny reverse lamp. These pics show the process to modify the guards to make way for the biggest possible wheel clearance.

We have also cut the inner of the front guards to allow the BRZ garnishes to provide FUNCTIONAL venting. There will be black mesh here, and matte black paint on the chassis so it is not visible.

Update: 13-Nov-2013: Visited Cameron's bodyworks, where the guys have outdone themselves  :P Josh has spent hours molding the guards and creating new bodylines. Getting the fuel filler is a bit tricky as it needs to be modified to allow the door to swing without fouling on the widebody. Further modifications will be done around this area to ensure that once it's painted and a little thicker, it will still clear. Front inner guards still need to be made/modified. Rest of the car is getting close to being ready for paint.. Keen to see what it looks like with the wing on  ;)
