From the looks of it, those bolts are there because the widebody is simply bolted into the stock body. :eek: As for the ads, a couple small decals are one thing, but holy smokes that's overkill! :D

The wheels are also a bad idea, no tyre protecting the edge of the wheel from damage. Cars like these are almost guaranteed to become trailer queens. Definitely won't see them trekking across the country for a rally. :)

I drove this to Vegas and back to LA, decals are for events only and this was at SEMA, all these vendors gave me free products, its the least i can do to appreciate the help ( no one really gives out free products, specially for smarts)

I stand double corrected! :) Most show cars spend their entire lives being trailered around, guess you meet the exception! :)

But don't you worry about the lips of your wheels being exposed like that? :eek:

"No sir, I don't like it." The extra body pieces look unnecessarily unnatural.
All accessories are not necessary, we buy them because we like them per. personal taste (the body kit is essentially the stock shape widened, so its as natural as body kit designs get) The Rim being exposed is just a style, I have driven many cars with the same set up with no issues, you just have to be careful driving as usual.

I like your creativity.
I love the wide body minus the rivets showing but still looks aggressive
The stretched tire is in style in the show scene n I plan to do the same for my show smart as well.
Decals / sponsors don't look bad I like them as well bonus since u have them there for a reason truly was sponsored.
Keep up the great work bro building cars is an art everyone won't agree with the design or creativity but this who are artistic may appreciate the hard work out into it. Great Job bro

I like it! Defintiely a cool look for a smart. I'm not sure I'm a fan of the look of having a rear wing, but kudos for going for it!

I think the strecthed tires are awesome - I know a few guys doing that on their Audi's, Bimmers, etc and always get attention for them at meets. Can you please give more details (pics too?) on the wheels and tires?

I also like the headlights and the body kit looks very nice but I also probably would have preferred seeing it without the "rivets".
Overall, 10/10 as a nicer smart than I'll ever have :)

I just noticed the wing...Not that is cool! :cool:

I wish smart wings weren't either stupid looking or too darn expensive for good looking ones. :(

Serious question. How is the ride quality with it dropped like that? Any issues with speedbumps or parking lot entrances?

No more tests. The OP only had one test and that was to make a wide-body kit for HIS smart. He did it, he likes it, and he shared it. Class is over, the bell rang, you can go home if you don't want to stay and play with the new kid in school!
