Hi All

Fender Flares are coming along quiet nicely.... lots of work though. i have decided to try my best to match up with the original holes in the body work.... so that there will not be a lot of work needed to fit the new flares... i am going to use a M8 cap-screw rivnut to secure the fender flares, which should use the original holes in the fender.... :blonde: This should also with a touch of lock tight and the rubber on the flare never come loose........ I have also tried my best to flare the flares from standard bumper to a +/- 4 inch flare..... i will add some pics so the guys can see and voice opinions on the bolt and rivnut idea, just in-case some one doesn't know what a rivnut is.....
