Does this car just have the rear TA style widebody over fenders installed as opposed to the entire kit? Or are those a different brand/style? Hows the fitment of those rear fenders?

The widening of the rear I actually did by cutting the quarter panel skins and bringing them outward about 1-1/2". All welded w/ steel and approx. 2 million tack welds, lol. The skits are from an old fiberglass kit that I bought on craigslist, the were badly damaged and molded them up to the body and secured with 3M panel adhesive.

...did the paint myself too

Nothing to report yet, things have just been to busy for me to focus on it. I am currently working on the headers and will have some pictures soon when finished with them.
