In other words, the flares are tough, but the mounting system isn't
Iäm wondering if you could add some sort of plating (sheetmetal spot- welded to the body) under the flares to prevent them from ripping through the body/ doors? I know it's a lot of work, but we all know that just the thin sheetmetal with self-tappers won't work on serious stuff.
I guess Notch customs has built these to look good and mount easily(no need to remove door panels or trim panels in the rear to install some sort of stock- style mounting strips). So, as always with aftermarket products, there's a catch and things could be improved..
Is why I would never use fiberglass. Could care less about some "tough looking video". For the cost of these flares, a company could paint match carbon fiber and still churn a good profit. I would never consider anything fiberglass except speaker enclosures or I/O powerboats.
also for the record like i stated before, the flare itself, is super strong so far, and i have knocked it off trees when i slid down some sloppy leaves into the flare against a tree, i broke one of the bolts, but the flare itself shows no damage. Just paint scratched
