I had somone weld in sheet metal, then filled it with tiger hair fiberglass, then bondo.
I sprayed underbody on the inside so the sheet metal wouldn't rust too.
My drivers handle cracked but I didn't put any fiberglass in there so that'* probably why.

Yeah man wheels would be nice but the only way i'd get 18'* is if they were lighter. And that means they'd be reeeeeaaaal expensive.

I finished the other headlight the other day.
The bumper was ripped and there were some dents up the side of the hood i wanted to knock out at the same time so it took a little longer then the drivers side.
Heres the before and after pics:

That car could be easily confused for a BMW 750il by the untrained eye.
