Looks good otherwise!
Agreed, it looks really good! This is a good stretch imo. Tire needs to have some sort of space when the suspension compresses. Meatier tire = rub

As far as the trim I tried the shadow line wrap as wells as the plastidip. None of them where up to my liking. The shadow line never laid on the rear section perfect and no matter how much stretch or what I did I could not get it to lay on correct. So I ripped it off and tried plastidip but wasn’t happy with the flat look. After removing the top section and a lot of time prepping, I painted it with dupacolor gloss black and it came out perfect, after I wet sanded and buffed with 2000 then 3000 sand paper.

Thanks for the kind words and you are correct on the fitment. I need the stretch for the car not to rub on bumps or dips. Right now as the car sits I can't even put my finger up the fenders at all. So any wider on the tires and I know for a fact I would rub.
