i really want SSR's tho hahh.
jb we can do a fitment test on your car if you want but i have a feeling it's going to be too much poke. with enough camber you can try and fit the 7"et15 but that's pretty extreme too. ideally you want to be around et25 on a 7". plus you don't have coilovers yet, car's gonna look funky without proper drop.

pretty friggin hard considering the kit alone is hard to find in stock so i'd imagine no one wants to break up a set. im going to have to resort to fabricating this piece or just running it rat rod style missing one arch

i dont plan on getting wheels before i get my coilovers. so dont worry coilovers will definitely come first, cuz i dont want mosnter truck fitment with wheels. and a test fit sounds good glen. i'd to have a real visual idea of how much poke it'd give me too, instead of just using my imagination off the "can we fit 9.5"" thread.

but according to that thread, i should be able to at most 9 inch wheels with the lowest of around 15 offest...right? (but thats a different issue entirely)

Damn Gren, that sucks. Could you use the good arch on the other side as a mold/model?

@wanderer - I'm going to ask around and see what I can do. i'm not sure how one can get a reverse of a mold. if this leads me down a road of figuring out a different way of molding and creating these who knows where this little mishap might take me.

@trip/chase - teh ghey

The only method that comes to mind that would create the identical product would be liquid injection molding. You would need to have a machined aluminum 2 part mold to be tooled which can be expensive.
