BRS Fender Flares

Could someone tell me about how much it would cost to get the BRS Fender Flares molded on. I am not looking for an exact amount, just an estimate. And also, any pics of the brs flares with a veilside kit would be appreciated.

molding: $200-$400

since you will have to pay over the fenders anyway, this is really the only extra cost...and it's well worth it in my opinino.

get both the flare edges molded (as all fender flares & sideskirts should be) but also get the bolt holes molded as well thumbsup

if molding was only 200-400 EVERYONE would do it

it can be as much as 1500, yea seems like a rip off,it isnt very hard work just time consuming

first

cut the fenders
bolt on fender flares
mold
sand
paint
clearcoat

also you'll have to get wider rims (EXPENSIVE) or just get spacers (cheap but they mess up the ride) also dont do it to a daily driver car

How much do they cost to get bolted on with stainless steel bolts? Include the cost of parts as well.

Whoa Whoa Whoa, I've never heard of a molding job that cost 300 Dollars. Maybe 300 dollars a fender. This is what I'm going to do. I'm going to do it my self. That's right im going to mold my entire body kit my self, and you can too, all you need is a lil courage and patience! Here's a really rough run down:
1: Sand to bare metal the area all bonding materials will touch
2: 3M makes an adhesive called somthing like 3118 Panel bonding. That stuff is ROCK SOLID! Essentially; glue the flare to the fender. Then quickly wipe away excess glue. (:::NOTE::: Always use latex gloves when working with any automotive materials.)
3: Use, a body filler (Bondo, Cuz, etc.) to smooth out the point where the flare meets the fender.
4: Sand, Sand, Sand, Sand, Sand, Sand.
5: When you think that you're done sanding, sand it a little more.
6: Primer and your ready to paint. You can take the whole car to the paint shop if you're doing a complete color change, or you can remove the fender and bring it in if you are staying with a stock color.
Enjoy! grin

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
