And widening the fenders can ruin the resale value.

cutting them and sticking flares doesn't help don't you think?

car's gonna look nasty. Plus widening the fenders that much is gonna be time consuming and expensive.

Exactly the same flares I'm looking to buy, but instead of cutting the flares around the rear door & bondo, I'll cutting the flares & keep the bit on the door screwed on. Also won't be cutting the body under the flares as I'll be keeping the front stock height & lifting the rear until I can afford coils as the rear is lower & scrapes Tongue. Or at least until I can get the '03 BJII model with the newer front as this car is also getting tired. Been following Reg's P5 for a few years now. He's come a long way. Been watching Troy Watford on his Mazda Mods channel when he flared his BJ. It looked good, but it's a shame that he didn't continue with it. Mine will probably be the 3rd BJ Mazda to get bolt-ons.

Tried to see how it might look like.

Thing with this, is that people will pay more money for work done to a car that would otherwise suck to do themselves or source the parts for. Once I lower my car, I could probably fetch profit since I have to do alot of fab work to get e36 coilovers in the front.
