s13 rocket bunny fender flares retrofitted on s14

I have been in search of a clean s13 for a project and was going to do a full rocket bunny kit.
Anyway I've come across a s14 with only 54k miles. I was wondering if anyone thinks ths s13 fender flares (rocket bunny s13 ones) could be retrofitted to a s14

S13 and s14 have completely different body lines.

that doesn't mean they wont fit. From what I remember of the rocket bunny flares the only issues you might have is where they meet up to the front and rear bumpers. I don't think they have any of the s13 body lines built into them, and if they do just fill them in. problem solved.

Yes, I am aware. Been in the 240 scene for over 8 years I just never post on forums because I research before I post noob questions. Just seeing if anyone had tried this, sorry if I seemed like teenager asking stupid questions.

That's what I was thinking... Maybe just a little trimming and a little fiberglass and should work. If I remember correctly s13 and s14 front and rear quarters are pretty much the same shape until you start getting to the sideskirt/bumper area. Thanks for the response slide!

I think the biggest problem area would be on the front fenders where it wraps up toward the hood. The s14 looks a little more rounded to me.

Anything can be made to fit anything.

But it will still be hideous.
