Do you have any info or pics of the rear over fender installation?or if ppl are molding them in, how they went about doing so?

Here's the rear fender's bare during a test fit session.








Here's the molding in process as done on my FC with the tri point kit (overall work starts in post 148):
http://www.norotors.com/index.php?topic=1274.msg18457#msg18457

Short version of the molded in version:

-Test fit with cleckos or sheet metal screws.
-Cut fender and liner to clear, add close out sheet metal if desired
-Remove paint from bonding area and clean
-Bond on w/ 3M panel bond
-Blend in w/ kitty hair followed by standard filler.

Fit on these guys is good enough you could rivet and call it a day if you're in race car mode (you still want to trim fenders for tire uptravel though)

The website says up to a 345 series tire, forgive my ignorance but what are the sidewall and rim size accompanied to said tire. Just curious how big of a drag radial I can fit on the car.

That's a Dodge Viper tire.  345/30r19 (latest viper is a 355/3r19 which I assume was the one someone asked about prior).  There's several track slicks in 345/35r18.  Diameters start getting big however, so for 99% of folks 335/30r18s will be the tire to run with this kit.

That's probably a 335/35r17 then.  Not as many choices as the 18, but there's at least a few options.

Yes they are.  Better availability than before.  We try to keep a kit in stock so it can ship within a week, rather than wait for production of a new part.
