Anybody know of an aftermarket source to get fender flares that are larger than the current shelby design. By larger I mean almost nearing the late 60's vintage mustang size fender flare. Not too large but something to give the car a meaner stance.
www.mustangdepot.com I believe has them, though I don't trust anything that has to be bonded on like that. I don't care what it is or how well it's bonded on, the paint will eventually crack at the seam where it is molded to the other piece.
NO BONDO!!! I want the flairs to be metal, to actually have the fenders flaired out, not that POS fiberglass repop panels. I am just looking for sheet metal that is manufactured with the flairs because I want the flairs to be perfect, not just "eyeball it" and hope for the best.
Sorry bro, I'd like to help you, but I don't think anyone makes metal flares. Any good body man should also be just as good with metal fabrication and should be able to make you some. I'd make you some but I just don't have the time with school, job, and restoring my own car.
No problem, but thanks for the offer. Don't blame you at all. I have no idea how many years it will take me to restore my Stang with my job and family. I have found a few places that sell the shelby size metal fender flares but want something slightly larger. I will see what a few friends of mine that I work with can do. They happen to be sheet metal techs in the Air Force. Never know, by then the car will have wings and a jet engine. Tim Taylor style all the way...........
Instead of using actual add-on flares, why not just flare the fenders / quarters? Unless you are trying to mount 20's on the car , this mod would make it look really trick and clear some larger tires sizes. Just be sure to have an awesome body man. Or you can always go to the Eleanor bond on flares! (j/k!)
I saw a site the other day( Maher racing I believe) That had metal fender with the flare, 3.25 inches I think. Every place I see has only one or the other, front or rear. Cant find one with the matching set. I just like the look of it. And will be putting wide tires on so I need the extra area.
Fender flares don't add as much room as you think. You'd be better off going with mini-tubs. I love the way they look too, but that's all they are for, is looks, so if you're looking to make room for some rubber under there, don't go lookin at flares, get some mini-tubs. Really easy to fab for any worthy sheet metal man.
