i know this is a sin to most of u but id like to flare my qp's. i would love to get some 295's back there. mustangs unlimited has a set of mold on flares for 250. thats pretty steep. anybody know where i can get some for cheaper? what is the best way to do this anyways? the reason i decided to do it is cuz they are severly bondoed up anyways and id like to just cut them out and put on flares. seems to be the easiest and best looking solution. thanx

Don't be intimidated by others who don't repsect your opinion. go do it. I'd love to see a Mustang with some 295's on it with flares!

If you knock out all the bondo will you have enough qp left to install the flares? I do think it's a sin to put on flares, but if it's bondo already, go for it. Hope it's not a "no go showboat".

well, if you are going to do it all, you should do it right. I have the Bill Maier flares (which are where Mustangs Unlimited probably gets them from) on my 70 convertible and they are top notch. Unless you are good in fabrication (either metal or fiberglass), the Maier flares are the best way to go......

I agree with Steve. Not everybody would consider this a sin. It is your car and if you think this would look good, go for it. I have considered doing this myself. I hope nobody holds this against me. :)

If you can do the welding and metal work, you might consider going to a junkyard and cutting the flares off of a late model anything. Just find a car that has some flares that wiil be able to adapt to the Stang and get them to sell you the entire fender sections. This might be a lot cheaper if you have a way to cut them off by yourself (cordless sawzall?). Then you can either do the work yourself, or you can take the whole shebang to a bodyshop.

Dang! Just when I got used to being "strange", I became a "newbie", then a "tire-kicker". Now I'm a "beginner"?.....hmmmmmm...where do I start?

And you still might consider narrowing the rear axles to center your front track to the rear. It's not too too expensive on a 9" compared to a 12bolt.
