Is it at all possible to make a narrow body into a wide body or similar?

Whoa! Thread revival! Lol. You can change the front guards. But i think the rear wouldn't be possible unless you alter the chassis and structure of the car?

Yes you can do the rear as well......you will have to get the rear quater panels from a widebody, cut out yours and re-weld the others on. There is no chassis probs as you are cutting out outside panels. The rear diff/driveshafts are the same on both models, but you will notice that you will need a bigger offset for the wheels to sit flush with the guards, if not they will look poxy as sunken in wheels on the back. :chuckles:

Front will be a piss easy swap but the rears will need to be cut out and rewelded onto your body. not really worth it really. just buy a gt4.

Id just bring it to a body shop and get the rear widedend to my liking. KUSTOM brah hahahah
