    I would imagine you'd need to get vendor status once you start advertising these.

    Nice car BTW:thumb:. I surprised myself and actually like your original fenders a bit better, but I can also appreciate your creative thinking on the redesigned versions too:applause:.

    Did you have to cut your fenders or just leave them intact?

    Very, very nice. Count me in for a set to purchase as long as they are not a bazzillion dollars.

    One thing that keeps coming to my mind, when installing, you do not have to lower the suspension of the car as much to keep that low fendergap look. The flares can more than likely compensate some. This will help with ground clearance as well as suspension geometry.

    Wondering what kind of coilovers you are on? I am assuming you will need something stiff and something without a lot of travel in order to keep from hitting the fenders

    Yeah, I agree that you have to have a pretty stiff setup or something that is adjustable. I have Tien Flex Coilovers and I set where it is stiff enough but not to firm to where I am bouncing on every little bump on the road.

    Hey guys, I just want to give you an update on the flares. So I finally finished the mold for the flares. I was going to post pictures, but for some reason, it wont let me. Anyway, I still have to clean up the mold a little bit, but so far so good. Also, I just want to apologize because it took me so long to make the molds. It was actually much harder than I thought. My "goal" is two weeks, until production starts. When I make that first set of mold, I will give you guys an update and post pictures. Thanks again...

    Yes, and don't exactly take my word for it cause i never personally done it. But for best results i would line the flares on the fenders and mark off where the top inside of the flare would go and cut right there.

    Hi Allen, I love your ride and I've been wanting to do something very similar. I bought the flares already and in the process of fitting them. My question is how many inches are you spacers? I just don't have the cash to buy different sets until I find the ones that you have. Thanks kindly for your time and by the way, your car is sexy as hell.

    Regards,
    John Quentin.
