Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

So, I finally got to install the flop shop offroad C&F panels. A few things I will say about them:
They are fairly heavily built, I think 1/8th" steel or so.
they fit well, but it took some gentle massaging with a BFH to get them to really fit tight, mainly the inner fender is where I had the most difficulty.
They do not come with directions, I was able to figure it out, but for someone who is inexperienced, it could be a problem.
If you want to keep the bracket for the factory spare it has to be modified due to a bolt for the panels hitting the middle of the bracket.
If you still have the factory tie downs, you have to remove them to pull the carpet back.
Some good seam sealer is what I used to make them watertight. I bought one tube and still have plenty left.
The drivers side is a HUGE pain to install, mainly due to it being difficult to reach the bolts.
DO NOT paint these before you get them mocked up, get them lined up, drill the holes, bolt them in and make sure everything looks good, then pull them off and paint them.
a small drill bit (unsure of the size, ill try to find out tonight) a 3/8s drill bit, hammer, 10mm socket, 7/16 socket and wrench and a small hex bit and 11mm wrench is what you need to install them. if you have a plasma it would only take about 2hrs to install (plus paint time) I had about 5 or 6 hours total in it, but that's including paint etc.
All in all I am very satisfied with these and would recommend them to anyone that either has rusted out rear quarter panels or wants to do a C&F but wants it to be more solid.
If you get them and have any questions about the install ill try to answer all the ones I can. when I get the time i'm gonna put a vid up on youtube explaining the install

The section that went here: Did the kit require you to cut this off?


My rear fender arches were cut and expanded (almost like a comp cut but just a couple of inches) so the bolt that goes on the inside of the wheel arch wouldnt match with the body work that was done.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

I'm also not a fan of having to remove the whole piece if you ever had to get to the gas tank hoses. Cleaning all of the caulking or seam sealer would be a huge pain in the ass.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

I do not like how all these companies laser cut their initials into their parts -- I get its a dog eat dog world in jeep parts but I purposely ignore parts with a name cut in them.

You want to sell to me you need to give me the "no name" option

Maybe I'm just too picky...

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

yeah it's in one of the pics I put in here. you got to cut alot off but it also strengthens it. and id rather have the fuel lines covered. it sucks if you have to get to em, but it's a jeep nothin easy to replace anyways lol
