for one if its not done right, it will crack over time, and with these type of flares that both cover the fenders and bumpers it would suck having it molded in the event you need or want to remove your bumpers.........IMO it looks a hell of alot better not molded.

This. I have molded flares. It looks great and is a great idea for a trailer queen garage car that's not driven much. For a daily driver like mine though, they see a lot more abuse. There are 3 different materials heating and cooling at different rates so lots of flex. They hairline crack and start to look bad. I suppose it's all in the materials used to do the bonding though. Next time around they will be riveted, less headache and a more aggressive look.

They look ether 16 or 17 and those are not DOT tires. looks like the car has tubbed fender wells.

In my playing with suspension I think it is impossible to make a miata handle well with much over stock diameter tires without also modifying suspension geometry and tubing the wheel wells to get clearance.

Your in tube frame territory if its done right. Looks absolutely gorgeous however.

I am pretty sure they are 16s and I think he tubbed it. It has a full cage and gutted. It has been a few years since I actually saw the car in the pics. I will see if I can get the sizes from him next time I talk to him.

I wish I didnt have a budget limit I would love to build a car with drop spindles tubbed fenders and a 400hp track day turbo motor. Run some Corvett size rubber.
