...and a breathing mask. I just sliced into my bumper last weekend to install the winch. Goggles and breathing equipment are necessary when it comes to fiberglass work.

finally was able to finish up my flares this past weekend, a figure i had somewhere around 2.5 hours into each front fender and close to 6 hours into both rears, really was pretty easy to do, the instructions are super easy to follow and after you cut the first fender the second one is way easier

did have a few issues with mine, first, somehow i ended up short to of the T45 mounting screws on the rear. don't know of i lost them or if i was shorted so i need to find some replacements, the second was i was getting anxious to finish and ended up with a little too much gap on my passenger rear between the door and body pieces and the other was i cut all my splash guards out about two months ago when they were rubbing the tires, so now i need something to fill the gap on the fronts so mud doesn't get trapped being the flare





too much gap
