Was wondering if there is a way to embose them on the car a bit more. Nothing bolt on I was wondering if you could stretch them out a little or roll them or something. I'm pretty novice when it comes to panel work and car in general its just me pasion! :D So any advice would be awesome!

Cheers Smitty

You going for 10" wide fronts? There is no need to pump guards on an e series with 8" wheels. Just roll the inner lip up.

15 x 10's on the back much guard work to be done there? I'm going to have fairly crisp suspension set up...
