Custom image fender flares mild and wild!!!

Finally after a ton of refining and tweaking our flares are done. We have the 4" option (most common) and our new 2" rear flares.

Most of you have seen the flares that we did on Jeff's '72 vette aka "Michelle" those are the 4" flares.

We also just completed our rear 2" flares. This flare mimics the front fenders shape so you don't need to worry about flaring the front too. The cool thing about these is that you get the whole quarter panel so even a novice can install them just like a stock fender and you don't need offset trailing arms. You can run some good sized meats under these fenders. We got a set of C5 Z06 wheels to fit perfect.

Some of the unique things we did with these flares was we centered the wheel in the opening, created a factory style wheel lip and we also made the opening round so there is even spacing between the tire and the fender opening.

Cost on them is:
$600 per set for the 2" rears.
$1200 for the set of 4" rears and matching fronts.

All molds are completed and parts are ready to make. The lead time is roughly a week. I can get them in a Fedex ground box and the shipping is $175-$225 in the US.

Here is a good shot showing how the rear contour matches the stock front fender.


Here are some shots showing the 2" with a C5 wheel.















Here are what they look like right out of the mold.






Here are the 4" flares

The 4" flares are perfect! Thanks, Josh.

Every time I go into the garage, I am amazed that this is my car. I keep telling myself it is real.

Taking her to the drag strip this Friday. I have a challenge to accept. Mark in his 2008 Vette, Sassy against my 72 Vette, Michele.

So far, I have only beaten him once, and that is because he red-lighted. Maybe 12.5" of rubber on each rear tire will help me hook up and i can give him a run for his money. We are doing best of 3 runs. Same bet as always - dinner.
