My thoughts so far are, When I was seeing pictures of the progress in the rear I was having doubts, but when seeing in person this thing looks insane!

I still don't love the transition of the rounded end of the rear fender to the squareness of the lower cap but when you look from behind it has a cool effect.

I found a good shop to paint the car, Custom Paint Workz in Vegas.
The owner Nikko, is a Vet also, and does a lot of Low rider paint jobs, he's been featured on TV shows for restorations and custom builds.

I know the car is still lacking a side diffuser/side skirt that flares out to fill in the front lower part of the rear flare.
Also, I still need to order the replacement mid section lip for the front bumper.

No skirts yet, no skirt diffuser/extensions/and no extra aero to compliment it yet but these pictures show the entire wide body kit.
don't mind the trunk gaps, the mechanical roof system isn't connected yet so it sits funny.

Tell me what you think about this rendering please:
My buddy from Zilvia.net made it using stuner.net.. forgive the shitty quality it was so dark since I asked him to do it black, that I had to add multiple IG filters to make it visible.

so with extreme negative offsets the tires in the front are hitting both the headlight brackets and the back side of the wheel well. so we had to do some trimming, I went ahead and had him trim the flat lip that sticks down above the front tires since those tend to cut op the tires when it bottoms out.

got the new 9" lips for the rear wheels. I really wanted 10" lips but they don't make them that big for AME's. .. oh well. ...
the picture of the wheels mounted on the car are 7.5" lips for comparison.

had to post this for national dog day! all 8 of my dogs!
couldn't imagine my life without all these furry friends.
2 of them were fosters but we decided to keep, I am glad I am finally buying a house next week with a half acre lot here in Vegas that has plenty of space for all of them.

Update:
Prepping to finally paint we realized the previous shady body shop had done shit work on the fenders, it was cracking all over the place and the cracks went deep to the bare metal, and they had put in way too much bondo to make the lines clean, but the panels were still wavy, so I had to hire a separate body guy to come redo all the body lines and make it all straight again.

I moved to my new home over the past week and had a mini trip to Cali for a couple weddings so not much got done.
but here's some stuff I did recently:
Built a play pen for my pits:

test fitted the poor sad ordens that haven't been used on Janet's car, but I can't drive it like this without a new alignment or it'll tear up the fender:
