    Thanks...I can't take all the credit. Kris is the engine guru. I primarily handle business operations, R&D and product development.

    Been wanting to try this with my 2wd '78 F-250 fenders...installed a set of 35's on 16x10 wheels once. Cleared at rest, but no up travel clearance.

    Hindsight I woulda liked to add a 1-1.5" bulge as well, but I'll try that later. This will be more economical for customers. If someone sent in good cores, could probably do it for $300 primed, otherwise it will be on par with glass. Have to finish these up first though.
