I thought about those for my car but I don't like how drastic the flare is. I think it would look 100 times better if the flare was more gradual. But I will reserve judgment until I see them molded in. Hurry up and get them done.

Wow, those flares are gonna look great! You have impressed me so far with your work, and I'm definately looking forward to your updates on the car! I just hope you're going to get some better wheels to fill up the extra wide fenders :)

Very carefully. I got one of once in a jy just to see if it was possible. It is. Just take a razor and go slow. It is just glue holding it on. Just take your time and you will get it. Getting it started is the hardest part. After that it is easy. As it is like a plastic so it doesn't rip easily.

the thing about those bezels is you have to custom fit them to the radio you buy. you can just make universal ons then sell them. i would have to have the radio and make the cuts, then mold it around the radio. thats why no one sells them cuz its a custom thing. if that makes sense.

So you are getting more aggressive offset wheels to make up for the flares right?...
