Who has bought a '89 body kit from Doug Hines?

I heard that one front wheel arch is not centered, who can tell me more about this?
How bad is it and how did you corrected this? (photos please!)

I'm worried about this mistake in the body, because if you relocate it then the distance to the front of rear changes so I assume it's not identical anymore to the other side.

Is it really off like this?

It’s the best kit available.

9/10 of the members here all have built their cars off of his kit.

The other exception being the batmobile charity guy Louis.

Hello Diante,
I have one of Doug's bodies in my garage. I've been cleaning out garage so I can start my build this fall. I'll be building a custom chassis and need measurements soon. My body is 6 years old and he told me some mold changes was done for rear wheel opening at the time. Don't know if any changes from that time. He say that drivers side is 1" wider in the rear.
I'll lay tape down center of body then the wheel opening to see if they are square, I'm not holding my breath though, lol
