The back looks comp cut above the bumper, I would say the front is okay the rear is to much.

I am thinking maybe a set of axial dingo flares may fix it?

I have to ask again after doing the rear corners, will this pass in the class 1 rules for the body?

I would think that your 1/2 measurement would come into play here. Keeping your wheelbase within the wheelbase of the body +/- 1/2" with or without the trimming would be my concern. The highest point of the fender radius would be center. If your trimming, I would try to make a continuous radius to hide he wheelbase offset. Flares mounted correctly would mask it all.
