Well, manned up. Took a minute of heavy breathing but i took off the beautiful flares and chopped them up. I really like the look! Maybe someday ill get aftermarket flares, but right now its looking killer. Heres some pictures I took.

Here is the front driver side all done without the door molding on (picked it up afterwards)



Passenger side done



Reused the liner, just cut them up to fit and some larger washers on the holes and it is pretty strong! Also only cut just a block of the bone structure just to keep it simple and easier. It flops a little bit in the wind but it doesnt bother me any



With the molding





Both done!



Still need to do the rears but ill do those tomorrow. Also tested out the new update on my nexus, photosphere is the ****

There needs to be 1 bushings and 1 washer on both sides of the mounting point

I have it with a washer on top

Finished up the flares, I just kept the rears on and then trimmed and pulled everything out. Put the door molding on and it was done in an hour. Looks killer! Need to trim the rear bumper to match the flares, and the trim that pinch seam, other than that it turned out pretty good!
