Critique my Widebody plans/budget

Im trying to do as much research as possible, and ask as many questions up front so i can maximize having to buy parts once, right the first time.
im not trying to slap a list together in my mind and have everything go terribly wrong, so im reaching out to those who know, and have more experience than i do
as its going to be static so im not looking to slam it to the ground, but im not a performance driver so i dont need racing parts that would make trackies mouths water. any critique is appreciated, what im getting right, what ill want to reconsider, and anything i completely omitted.

1. THE KIT
Rallybacker v2 10 pc with shipping-----------------------$1600
Professional install------------------------------------------$2000
Painting the kit to color match the car pre install----------$1000

2. PLATFORM & HANDLING
Used $1500-$2000 coilovers (rce's or csg flx a's) -------------$1000
used rlca's (ideally spl's?) and toe arms -----------------------$500

3. WHEELS & TIRES
18x10.5 +20's----------------------------------------------------???
(many options and prices vary from $1k to $3.5k)
one option is Raijins(+25mm) for $1k
another option is rs05rr's (+15mm) for $2.3k
ideally id get gold ten spokes but my only option is xxr 568:/
255/35 iny500's or similarx4-----------------------------------$600
~50mm conversion spacersx4--------------------------------$300




im trying to be conservative/high with my estimates, i know i could get bc coils for 500, and used lca's for much less, xxr's for $800, but i want to buy nice, not twice.
i researched a ton, and did lots of budgeting before getting a JRSC installed and dyno'd and it payed off when it came time to pull the trigger.
im not saying this is the only way i want it done, im willing to spend more, i want to do whats right, and im reaching out to you for advice.

I promise if your goal is to buy nice, not twice, you should not buy used suspension components. For what you're spending, just buy new. Step down on your coilover preference unless you're trying to track the car (The KW V1 or ST coilovers are perfect)

If you're planning on going really low, especially with the power you're making, I'd budget in to afford axles fairly often.

Also going used for axles is pretty smart. I bought used 2015 axles for $180 shipped whereas they would’ve been $800 + tax from the dealership

$1000 for paint seems way off.

Double or triple your budget for install work if you want a good job.

I know of a wide body build that cost around $10k, that was install and paint, body prep prior to kit install takes alot of time to do right.

Unless you just do a hack job like most wide body installs.

That's a good start. I would double the paint and install budgets. Prepare for the worst and let your surprises be good. I know you think you passed the number but not nearly enough.

Suspension I agree with whoever above said downgrade. If your not tracking and just want a slight drop why not RCE yellows?

Stock car really has a great setup for daily. Definitely do not pay $2k for coilovers unless you want to go tracking/autocrossing whatever. Or if you have enough money you don't care.

2. PLATFORM & HANDLING
Used $1500-$2000 coilovers (rce's or csg flx a's) -------------$1500 These are gonna be a little soft, you'll probably want something atleast 9k spring rate range
used rlca's (ideally spl's?) and toe arms -----------------------$750

3. WHEELS & TIRES

Your wheel specs are way off. I suggest you sit down and do some math on what offsets you need. I can give you a general starting point. You'll want around 18x9.5 -10 ish on the fronts and around 18x11 -25 ish on the rears.

2k for coils is fair to me, for 2k you can get performance and comfort.

I don't track this thing but coils let me choose my drop, 20mm, and they came with adjustable top hats.

My MCA street performance coil overs piss on the OEM Sachs for performance as well as comfort.

I would spend my money on handling before huge rims and tyres. But then I don't even like wide bodies and/or big rims on cars that don't need the rubber.

How long will the body work last before rusting out is another factor to look at, plus lose of value at resale.....meh

also this

the trick with wide body-ing a car is getting that fender clearance. youll want a semi decent cut to weld up the body again, but its not just weld. its weld, seam sealer, primer and then paint. then you want to make splash guards for the kit too. all that is custom work and takes time and money to do it right
