Default custom sorcery wide body nsx

This is my '91 Acura NSX with sorcery wide body. Most of the parts on here are custom made. It took a lot of time and effort to get everything to fit right. The pictures didn't come out as clear as i thought, so there's better ones to come.

Looks pretty good but I would expect better fitment on an NSX.

Fitment sucks, other than that looks decent.

When you guys say fitment isn't right, can you be a little more specific so that i can fix it?

I can appreciate the work that goes into something like this, but it just doesnt fit. Lowering the car to get rid of the fender gap wont work bc the kit is already so low to the ground. The widebody kit is too wide for those wheels, so maybe a different offset or some spacers could fix that.

Did you do the work or have a shop do it? As far as the bumper to hood gap, I would have never paid a dime for the work until that was fixed. For a shop to return a car to a client with that kind of fitment is unacceptable. Ive done minimal body work and even I know the number one thing is for the lines to match up

Other than what i said, I think it looks good, and with the changes others have suggested, i think its gonna be an easy fix and come out real nice. good luck!

I think i know what you guys are talking about. Between the hood and the bumper that black piece that you guys are thinkning is a gap actually isn't. It's a rubber piece that is supposed to be between the hood and the bumper. Hopefully these pictures clarify what you guys are talking about. Let me know if that's not what you guys are referring to. Thanks for lettin me know though. i appreciate that.

even in the close up pics you can tell that the hood to bumper gap is still way off. that rubber shouldn't be so noticable. i doubt it even keeps the rain out. but hey man, i do love the kit, don't want to sound like im being too harsh lol. just need to get that little issue solved, maybe change your ride height and wheel offset and your golden. thats just my opinion. sexy ride tho for sure.

I don't know if it's "way off", but it could use some adjusting for sure. I think it needs some bigger wheels. Don't lower it any more than it already has been. You will ruin all the work you've put in. I think the car looks nice as hell man! Good job to who ever did that work.

haha where? to the ground? I really dont think you can lower it anymore without every imperfection in the road destroying that front fascia. Its already about as low as you can go with it. It really seems like larger wheels is your only realistic option. i dunno how it would look, but maybe if you used a slightly taller profile tire that could work?

Okay, I have been in your boat and ill give you some ideas. My nsx has been changed quite a bit and i got sick and tired of rolling 4x4 in my nsx to avoid destroying my front end. i bought new wheels and coilovers and this is way it sits now. the wheels are flush and they are 19x8(+24) and 20x10.5(+12) work meisters. i drive it all around town, but you better get use to scraping because i even still scrape when i drive.

A wheel 1 size up and a larger side wall'd tire should fix the wheel gap. maybe a 40 or 45 side.
the car looks great, just paint that rubber seal white in between your hood/ bumper. lol seriously though depending on the actual gap it may work out. or just buy a Carbon fiber hood, it may blend the gap in. heh
