Whoever came up with the VW flares idea I would like to thank them. They are just the right size to use in many ways. I used them as the basis for my front flares and they were just what I needed. All of the sheetmetal was pieced, welded and dollied into shape. Wish I could figure out how to use my English wheel!!!
Cheers,
Bill

JEFF: Didn't VW used to advertise them as a good "WINTER" car in Minnesota because they would eventually "Dissolve" back in the soil. ??? eye rolling smiley

If you mean the VW arches in my topic of that name we swapped sides, Plenty of meat on them to allow options on how big you make the flares.

Fidanza FW. Basil's followers and pushrods. TR7clutch. TT exhaust. ARP everywhere. 123 ign. Needham 4synchro c/r box.. Stock rebuilt/replaced suspension. Superpro bushes. New brakes all round including all pipes in SS flex. Interior redone. CAMS approved roll bar and side bars. Lots more. Hybrid of o/e and show/fast road car. Not for sale - it's my toy!

GT: UK car built/sold December '78. Stripped back to bare shell with VW Golf flared guards, flush fit front and rear valances with front guards immovable. Front and rear seams removed,Torana XU1 vents, frenched indicators front & Mk1 rear lights. Powered by 'worked' Rover 5 litre V8 (ex TVR Chimaera) with efi. T5 box. FC IFS. CCE rear attached to Salisbury axle with Quaife. All new interior with MrMikes covers on MX5 seats. Retro4 7x15 rims (zero offset) and 205/55 rubber. Colour: Jaguar Storm. Not for sale - it's my sanity!

Have to trust in Jim - it's so long ago (well 2 years) since mine were done I can no longer be 100%. What I can say is once you start holding them up against the existing bodywork it becomes obvious. Of course I refer to VW arches.
