Just a shot in the dark. Anyone know of any available fender flairs for an 86 gl hatchback? Or anything that could be retrofitted? I am lifting my hatch and running 16x7" wheels. The offset is perfect, but that other 2" will be protruding. I'm sure it will look fine, but some flairs would look fantastic.
Thanks

Nicely done. I was thinking of something more orthodoxed. But that is deliciously redneck.

I've said it before in another thread but I'll say it again. In 4WD shops (in Australia at least) you can buy 4WD fender flairing rubber. It comes in strips and uses a wire inside the outter edge to hold it on a good curve. Might be a good idea to check it out. Although here it cost about $150 to do a car, which is way over priced I thinks.

:eek: $150.00, even is OZ bucks that's pretty steep ... flares with flair, no doubt.

I appreciate all the help. I'll weigh the options and come up with something. Lift kit going in this weekend. Pics will folow.

Thanks.
