Double question thread: Comp corners and stretch

I'm looking into getting my comp corners for when I stretch my 2DR. My questions are has anyone run the comp corners before they stretched it? Also, is that even possible or does it move the open wheel well back for the stretch? I am going to buy the corners and just wondering if I can go ahead and mount them and cut it up before the stretch suspension end is ready.

Depends on which corners you get...but yes the purposr of the comp corners or stretch corners is to relocate the wheel well

Makes sense. I was just being impatient of putting them on before I get to buying the ORI's and the waiting game begins.

Haha! I have always wanted to do that. It started out as my friends calling it the booger but changed over time to the booger. I may need to give pixeldecals a holler!

The problem with running a comp cut on the standard wheel base is that when you do the stretch you will have a huge open space in front of the rear tires. A stretch is really something to do all at once unless you plan on doing things more then once.

Some build info here:

Makes sense. I just wasnt sure if the front was moved at all on any of them. Its hard to tell because every photo i see is a stretch plus a comp cut. Thanks for that dirtman!
