Default 240z flare rough fitment test

I think I need two sets of hands to do this properly... and some real tape (not painters). But fitment looks close enough. With a rubber welting strip to fill any small deviations... I think they can work







And for kicks... fitment test on the 240sx.




I got these from Les at http://classicdatsun.com/. Pulled him up from a random search for Z flares. He came recommended through at least one post I had found. They were right. Responded right away, easy to deal with on phone and made a box and shipped the flares the next day. I'll be doing business with him again for another set... can't split the one set onto both cars

why did you go with Z flares, cheap?
looks close enough for a real track car, not show quality but who cares about that anyways?
