View Full Version : Made some rear flares using the old YJ flares

So since I painted the Jeep and took the old flares off I havebeen getting the 'evil' eye from the local yocals......They dont mind our off roaders, we talk to the DOT quite frequently to make sure we are all ok..So they know the rig, but since I took the old flares off...ya tehy are being meaner to me..so :dontknow:

Process was fairly simple, more fitting and getting the right 'pieces'.....

Ya I had to cut them up a bit but hey they have been in the backyard for 3 years and never even looked at them so WTF.....I have to incorporate tht turn signal on the side but should look ok once its in there..

so ya a little heat to make them bendable, some cutting, I needed something to reinforce the center section where it joins, soooooo....ALuminium to the rescue again....

anyhow here are some pics..Still need to paint the Aluminium pieces, was getting cold last night...



This one I got painted...



all fer now...

looks good. what about the back section... seems to be a large open area?

[speach] damn thats ugly...

Have to agree! But the open part on the back makes for a great windshield smasher.[redneck]

If you don't mind I'll drive in front[cheers]
