They'll only look good if your wheels line up with them. It looks bad with big fenders and the wheels way back. thumbsdown

It looks as if it dosn't have a good fitment. Nice try workin' on it, but I don't think it will flow with the car too well. Just my two cents.. thumbsdown

The problem is not the fittment, but the shape itself. Flares should be bigger than those? I would like to hear the opinion.

if you are going to change ur rims and tires for wider ones, then you that is ok. but if your gonna keep your rims and tires, then i think you should make them smaller, more like the TRD wheel arches.

acutally i think it fits prety well, just paint it and rivit them on. don't cover up the rivets, it looks more hardcore. and get some wider wheels, how about the Work VS-XX?

I think it's sitting a little too low. It should also be more square, less flat. But thumbs up for effort though!!

I think you should mold them to your skirts and rear bumper so it flows from front to back.
right now it really looks like you stuck something on it and isn't part of the car.

great job on making it yourself..but honestly, they sit way too low...it should have a more bubbly shape with the highest point of the arc parallel to the top of the gas tank..it jus looks like it pertrudes out too fast, it shouldve started off higher and rounded out on the way down...not to sound pessimistic, i hope everything turns out well when you can look at it and say youre done

I don't like the way it looks personally and maybe that's because I don't particularly care for fender flares. If I had the money for it, I'd just by the widebody kit but thumbsup for making them.

we all would..IF we had the $$.

the only two widebody kits currently available are (most famously) the apr gt300 kit ($3000) and the black widow II kit ($1800--but i find the design a bit tacky)

Take a look at the GT300 body kit, and try to mimic those fender flares and how they did it, it looks very nice on the GT300 celi, if you could some how make the size and body comparisons you'd be straight

Your right, they need to be bigger/ bolder inorder to stand out. Right now if you kept them on they would look very cheep. There needs to be more material b4 they start to bow out aand away from the car thumbsup
