Serious effort in that car. Looks the part too. What's the road handling like with that offset and the engine so far forward?

All to their own!!

But

Ain't u doing a vtec conversion? Why wouldn't it b ur cup of tea
Mine has been done very well!!! Yes to the extreme with the big arches and wheels but
That's needed as it's a vtec :) more rubber more grip + wider+ wider arches needed
Everything is based on wat the car needed so ye :) all to their own I suppose :)

I like it. I personally would have left them polished and maybe clear coat them. Just my opinion though.
