Are the fenders 'glass or just pulled?

Great build by the way. I've got a bad case of engine envy.

Fenders rolled and pulled. The body guy actually did a pretty artful job of shaping things and also unbolting the fronts and partially bending them out to get a good pull and a nice contour. Still haven't fit up the 275s to see if they fit.

Don't envy the motor much right now. It is back out of the car, and at best will need a full clean out and all new bearings. The crank is walking at least .100" in thrust. At worst what you are looking at is a big and very expensive pile of shiny scrap if the crank has been hitting the block inside the crankcase.

I'm glad I have another Miata to autocross.
