ok.. my brat does not really have toooo much rust around the fender wail but rather then repairing and rebuilding the wails I am thinking about sniping back the wails a bit and puting in fender flares. So my quesiton is has any one got pictures of there fender flares. I am thinking I am going to be using a j c whitney for the parts.

I bought a set of those for my Brat. I am not gonna use them because they don't match up enough for me. The gas tank cut out is on the wrong side for my brat (82). If you want ones that fit Gen 2 cars, go with a samurai flare set.

An 87 would be a 2nd gen. Gen 1 brats were made from 78-81, gen 2's from 82-87. I'll see if I can find a site for ya, but ebay is definitely the way to go. You'll prolly want the 1 1/2"- 2' wide ones.

I don't know if you're trying to cover legality, or if you just want looks.. in fact these may not at all be what you are into..

I used 88 Jetta GL trims. I payed $15 for a set of 4 from the JY. Takes a little modification, but they go on.Posted Image

That is pretty close. The main reason is that rather then rebuild the wheel wail I rather just cover them whith fender flares.
