Interesting, I won't get nearly 7" maybe 4-5" but still have to think about it

I should be able to pull 7" but to be on the safe side I'm going with 6" since my 8.8 is not a forever deal. Plus I'm using a genright 15G comp tank

No, you can buy just the plastic bezel they sell in their stretch kits. I'm posting from my phone so I can't provide a link, but I have seen just the bezel listed at several retailers.

That's interesting, I would probably have to make my own custom mounting holes in the corner guards

Yeah that's it, my plan is to make the stretch cut into my existing Metalcloak corner guards, then graft onto the front portion the correct filler piece. I figure a little welding, body filler and grinding and sanding I'll have some stretched corner guards without spending much, and I won't have to drill any new holes in my tub. Lot's more work though than just buying another set. Oh well.
