According to this link:

I am already off to a good start at 0.33 CoD. Going wider will hurt my frontal area, but the bigger tires are too important so I will use it as an excuse to evacuate the engine bay along the rear fender gap. I'll need extended side skirts that end at a flat floor so some samples of paneling that can be mounted with rivets to an aluminum extruded tube structure should be my next step, then build the car up from there. Since the front tires are going to poke I'll have a bit more stability so bringing the rear inward 3ish inches on each side will let me taper the chassis without sacrificing handling too much. Really looking forward to 800lb springs lol.

I have a feeling I'm going to need a LARGE shop and gain some fiberglassing skills if I want to pull off the body changes that really excite me. or step up to vacuum-bagging and mold the panels with lumber/plaster to keep it cheap. So many options, so little time.
