Easy easy easy. Only tricky part is cutting the rear as its a duel layered body.

check to make sure you have correct side of car and end. Each flare is made to fit only one peticular corner.

Flares can now be had at www.Racinglifestyle.com

Please lock this thread as I no longer am able to offer this price to individual orders(cost of making a single set at a time).

his price is the best you'll find for flares this side of the pacific ocean. Just pay the $25 more than the GB cost.

Not my car in the picture, but a friends. He is using the sportmax 002s with 205s in the pictures, but he already has a set of 15x10s and 225s waiting to go on. Since he was the actual designer of the flares, I believe him too'

Group buy has been long since over now. As I said above, go to www.Racinglifestyle.com to get them. If you in cali, just paypal to [email protected]***.net as the site is setup for sales tax in cali, but since I dont have an official buisness yet, Im not required to tax just yet.
