    Is anyone else with a 1g digging those fender flares on @cioc s blue 1gb? Because that car looks effing amazing to me. I'd like some more information on them if anyone has any insight like if you have fender flares what make/model you used to make them fit.. much appreciated!

    Btw I know there are other fender flare threads but the majority of them loop back to 2gs..

    I believe they're made for a 240Z but I can't remember now, hopefully Rory will chime in... and also update his DSM profile specs :) We were all discussing 1g fender flare options some 10 years ago and he went through with it. There weren't more than a couple options that were viable back then.

    The flares were made from these: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic02c/50-1562

    Long story short they don't bolt on without gaps. I taped the car, bolted them on and then filled with a two part epoxy similar to a caulk gun. Then I sanded it to the point I could live with. The very ends still do not touch the bodywork but like Chris said this was done many years ago before options like "carbonetics" existed. I will post more pics in this thread of the process when I can.

    I'd greatly appreciate it.. because I've honestly never seen a 1g look so aggressive, and I'm sure there are a lot of other 1g owners that stare open mouthed at the DSMtuners home page now LOL
