Thanks for the pictures. Looks awesome. I would love to do that to my S8 some day.

There’s a chance I will need to get my arches widened/flared/pulled if I go ahead with my next phase of the S8.....my biggest obstacle is motivation

We will see. Probably next year if I go ahead with it.

Dim question alert!

I thought ‘fenders’ were bumpers in UK speak. Are we talking bumpers or wheel arches?

I didn't know that but I'm referring to the wheel arches.

That was my thought as well. However, after delving into YouTube for how to do it, there are lots of videos from the other side of the pond all referring to the wheel arches as fenders. Here is one example:
