Re: Wide body kit

A good supplier of any parts for X1/9 and also wide range of performance upgrades in United States - Midwest X1/9.

Dallara bodykit is around 1000$.

I got everything from that guy.

Check www.midwest-x19.com

Re: Wide body kit

Check Guy Moerenhout in Belgium. He does the Abarth replica bodywork and it is decent high quality stuff.

Re: Wide body kit

Thanks for the info. Am in the States, so Midwest seems best for me. The body is in good shape except around wheel wells, so I don't really need hood etc.

Re: Wide body kit

I got mine from Midwest.

Full body kit includes 4 wheel flares and front bumper.

It had some problems though.
The front bumper didnt fit well with the left flare, but the right one was ok.
A bit of problem with fitting near right headlight.
All this was probably due to the front bumber not being made exactly right. But nothing too bad.

Here are some photos.

All work, fitting + painting took about 3 months.

Re: Wide body kit

Thanks.
I am keeping all the original stuff with me so I can get back to classic design.
I didnt even cut the original flares, they are still there under the new ones.

But they might be an issue when I will be putting my new rims...

BTW: Does anyone knows if cutted wheel arche's can be rebuilded back?

Re: Wide body kit

You can buy wheel arch sections,but it depends on how much arch you have cut away.You may need to rebuild the inner arch first if that is gone,but when that is done the outer arch is easy to weld and fill
