Default Mustang W I D E body question

I have been thinking about doing a wide body Mustang, possibly a 2010 -2013. I don't mean a 4 fender flares kit. I mean with bond on rear quarters, etc. How many choices do I have in good quality products?

We created this Widebody Mustang - was very well done & received some great attention:

Galpin makes one, it is ugly, and Shelby makes one that I personally think looks the best, sorry TJ.

I agree on the Galpin kit. I am afraid that people would leave their coffee cups on that "shelf" half way up the side.
APR makes a decent one.
Any others???

The Shelby kit I do like.
Hasn't anyone here done a APR wide body kit?

I do, but I don't post on here often at all as you can tell (since I'm bumping this thread from January). Here's mine:

Finally... a fellow customizer. Thanks for the reply and great pics. I pulled the trigger a couple months ago and ordered a kit for a 2011. Bought a 2013 hood, 18 inch wheels, tires, etc. Going to be a 1.5 year project. It is hit in the rear and that is a good thing. I am going to change the rear end back to a 05-09 style with some custom touches. [sorry, always hated the sloped forward, rounded cornered 2010-2014s]
Were you happy with the quality of the kit?

Quality is good, just make sure you have a guy who knows how to sand down fiberglass very well so that it's as smooth as possible. Unfortunately I have some spots which aren't ideal but at this point I don't mind since I'm not 'showing' my car any more, it's pure track use only now. Everything else was perfect, no issues here!
