So you trimmed the rear fenders, and need advice on how to put the caps you already have back on, or you don't have any rear caps at all?

You could get creative, and do some cutting on the ones you have? Could remove enough to make them look stock again (as much as you trimmed). Then use a backing plate with some pop rivets to hold it all together? A coat of paint and it could be a good temp solution?

If you don't have any, junk yard or classifieds.

Just trim the back caps to line up with your trimmed fenders, it'll look fine. I did this with my flat flares. The front mount hole was cut off so there is only one bolt holding them on, but they stay on just fine.

I originally did this with my front, you could try something like it in the rear?
