Took a while to find this one, so I bumped it up after reading the 1/12th Camaro review

I had marginal success doing this. The fender seems to have been stronger than the horizontal body. Fender didn't widen but body caved. Yet I've seen this done effectively by others. I ended up adding a split to give the fender room to expand out, then fill the horizontal cut and the vertical split.

Maybe thin the thickness of the plastic some before starting? The plastic around the wheel opening? It might give it a little more flex being thinner?
I haven't tried this yet so I'm just guesstimating.
