    KP61 Starlet build

    Hello everyone! I am new to the JNC forum. I just got this KP61 starlet on a trade and decided to have a little fun with it. Its a 1 owner car with 80k miles on it and still runs great. I am not planning on running these wheels on the car but I had them here and figured that if I clearanced and widened everything to fit these 18x9s then the sky is the limit for wheel selection. I want to go with some 15x10 or 16x10s all the way around.

    I started the fenders in the front and they are all steel. Still gotta do the back.. As it stands I can turn lock to lock without any contact and only running a 12mm spacer with 48mm lug studs....Should be safe. If you hate the fenders....fine, they were ruined anyway by rust and needed replaced. I personally dig them, think they match the lines of the car.

    Please go easy on me as THESE ARE NOT THE WHEELS I AM RUNNING. Thanks for looking!







    Here is what I work on every day...Subaru

    I like the TRD widebody, dont get me wrong. I just decided to make a widebody that I felt suits the shape of the car a bit better. At this point its just fenders so they can be replaced., no harm done. The rear pieces will be rivet on so they can be removed later if I want to. Rust had taken its toll on this east coat starlet so I dont feel bad about modifying it. If it were a pristine specimen I would never cut on it.

    Stay posted for the rest of the build. I am finishing the rear and then throwing some paint on it. I am trying to find a good white to paint the car. I kinda dig the flat white...well used to be gloss lol, but its flat now.

    Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks for looking

    Starlet with 13x 8 wheels on TRD flares = pure sex.

    Yes big wheels on small car = super gay.
