And here we are. Finally working on replacing the chopped up crappy looking fender flares. I started this yesterday and I'm almost finished with the front. I don't recall it taking this long on my Jeep a few years ago, but I'm probably being a little more careful cutting on my wife's Jeep than I was on mine. I also opted to trim part of the fender (the back for extra tire clearance), but across the top I trimmed the lip off the flare where it interfered. The end result is basically the same and this was easier to match up side to side IMO.
Here's another reminder of where we started.
So I removed the flare and did some of this.
then drilled a few holes to end up with this.
Then after a few test fits I got here. This was after I had trimmed about an inch from the front edge of the flare to line up with the fender.
I paid $25 for the complete set of flares, thus the condition. Even in their scratched up and extremely faded condition they were a huge step up from what was there before. They also came with clear marker lights (not pictured) which I don't care for but they will do for now. Since I was wanting to make it look as nice as possible, I picked up a can of plasti-dip to try out and it seems to have worked very well.
I had to let those dry for 4hrs so no finished pics tonight, but it should look great. I'll probably start on the rears next weekend.
