The title says it all. I felt really lucky to find some since no yards had any and there were none on the internet except here. So on to the pics. (Check out the "17 and painting a car" thread for more car pics.)
This might piss some people off but this is as far as I'm going to get with them until next summer. And yes I will space the rears to make them more flush but damn these flares are big. They remind me of the Lotus Esprit Turbo they put flares on, and the Pantera. It's cool how they make the front look lowered.
By the way, if Fiero2M8 could chime in with some info on how he did the final fitting (before glassing in) on his LT1 Roadster that would be peachy.
those look awesome, but word of advice... imho they look best when they are straight up and down vertical - so thicker at the bottom if you can do that - rather than angled in... those look awesome... i'm going to keep my eyes open. :-)
I haven't seen Fiero2M8's car, but I have to say that this looks out of place without some tiny 13 inch wire wheels with low profiles sticking 10 inches outside the fenderwells to complete the look.
Just my perception. When it's finished it may look great.
Ironically, the idea was to bring the front wheels flush with the fenders to eliminate this look, since they noticeably stick out at the front. The way the flares are made works perfectly for this. The wheels fit perfectly in the back but I'll put a respectable spacer back there to make them flush with the flares. Screw '88 offset, but at least it has made me do my car different than everyone else.

Thanks guys, looks good. I remember joining the forum and thinking I had invented the Sunbird Turbo hood vents but alas they were all over the forum. The fenders were well received and can easily be a bolt on. I got the idea after I had previously put 85 Supra flares on a 84 533i.
