Should have bought a koup?


(and if you want fender flares your gonna have to get them custom molded by a body shop and it's going to cost a crap load of money)

But are you going to also get a wheel with an offset that will fill the fender and sit flush? If not that's going to look horrible.

Especially if it put a crease in the fender. Good chance you'll start loosing paint and rust will start.

LOL. no it isnt.

cars with that "wide body look" (lol) have had their fenders rolled, pulled, cut, welded, then prepped and painted.

and the miata above my post looks like complete shit.

Meh, I was thinking that Miata looks pretty clean looking. But you're right, I don't think you can just buy one of those fender flares, paint it to match and then just stick it on. It's not going to look right.

Darth, I personally think you should just have it fixed but you seem confident so good luck to ya, hope it works out either way you go.

and actually cutting, welding, and painting are only done for VERY VERY crazy pulled fenders.

a regular fender pull would only roll and pull with no need to repaint, if done right with a heat gun so the paint doesnt crack while being pulled.
