Metal Fabrication: Stretching the wheel wells on the Vega Wagon

We were having a little problem getting the 31-inch drag slicks in and out of the vega wheelhouse, so just imagine a 32- or 33-inch tire.

The vega quarter panels did not have any bondo so it was an obvious candidate for a wheelhouse stretch. So this wagon just received a 4-inch wheel opening stretch to solve the problem. We also filled the gas door that won’t be used in the future.

Take a look at our 4″ wheel well stretch.
