Fender Flares

Postby raffaelli » Sun Feb 14, 2021 7:18 pm

I am preparing to install rubber fender flares on the front and rear.

Does anyone have some photos or information on how you reconnected the inner and outer panels after the wheel opening was enlarged?

Rivnuts for holding the two panels together? Not going to work. I am anticipating about 1/2" gap.

Perhaps you mean to hold the flare to the outer panel? Yes, rivnuts is the way to do that..

how wide of a offset you're thinking? if it's just 16 or 15x8 with +28, i would just get a body professional shop to heat the metal fenders to expand it more. Project car CRX done this and looks way better than adding flares.

Have not figured it exactly but 15x8 225 slicks +28 or 25. I think flares are the only way.
