the downside is when you get a hit anywhere on the car, it will crack and look like crap.
It's alway fixable after but you need to respray every time...
It does look good but...Moved on to other suff.

i wish someone could come up with a wide body kit for our supras!!! bring the front and rear fenders out about 4-6inches !! that would be awesome!!, think of how wide of a tire you could go with!!! all they make is the F1 body kit, i guess. thats all i can find!!TREECE 86 MK2 SUPRA.

I'm with Nick on the cracking. I much prefer unbolting the damaged part and replacing with another one with minimal paint work involved.
As for widebody options, custom is the only way.
1) Get a spare pair of front flares from a Celica, mod, and mount/fit to the rear.
2) Find/cut the fender buldges from a mid-80's Mercury Capri runabout (basically a Mustang) and graft/weld/mold them into the Supra. Should add another 2-3 inches of width.
