- Plan on at least couple of hours, depending on tools, etc.
- Front flare is EZ…REAR is more complicated because it requires removal of inner fender. I will attempt to give you some pointers in following pictures, so you don't have to send the kids inside ([email protected]#$%).
- Inner fender removal is EZ. Replacing it was the toughest part. I've included a diagram for lining up the holes to make it easier.
- You don't need to jack up the car, although it might help. I installed mine without a jack.
- A good eye, ratchets, electric screwdriver with multiple attachments will all come in handy. You will also need one of those stubby screwdrivers for small spaces. I have a set of ratchets/drivers with a squeeze grip, which replaced the need for the stubby screwdriver. Your tools may vary.
- Install only one side at a time so you always have a 'stock' side to refer to in case you forget where the screws go.
- I ran into a gap between my front flare and Splash Guard. I could have lived with it, but successfully modified the Splash Guard. Instructions enclosed.
- If you're installing color matched (painted) flares, the tape backing will likely have some over spray. Remove this over spray with the flat end of a screwdriver, thumb nail, etc. If you don't remove the excess paint, it might flake off when removing the backing and undermine the seal. [/list=A]
I am including several pictures. Some have one flare installed and one flare off so you can compare. I am also including several shots so everyone should get a good idea of before and after.
I really like the ways these turned out. If you have any additional questions, let me know!
