Re: Rear Fender Trim Write-up, retaining the stock flare (Fender Trim Part 2)

I cut and folded on the rear with my 89 two weeks ago, and it's awesome. I placed mine up higher, required cutting the flare in two, and the front halves are actually mounted to the back doors. I did not re-use the stock hardware, as I secured the flares with screws. The whole thing is in the process of Herculining and sealing right now, and I will post pictures when it's done. Cutting fenders is the way to go.

it's to help prevent any water from getting back there and accumulating. over time that could cause rust.

Lol, yeah, that actually is the next trim job. I've (since the rear trim's been done) smashed my rear quarters up pretty good out in Crozet by imitating the space shuttle and they need to be cut and folded now. I just haven't decided how I'm going to do the end caps yet. I'll probably just order a set from Terry at Rigid Co, but I might just do something home made like Eric just did a few weeks ago. Either way, the quarters are history.

Oh goodness its been scratched. Its definately a looker at 25 feet, but a pin striped wonder at 10 feet. I just try to keep a good coat of wax on the paint so that everything getting scratched off is mostly wax. It seems to work pretty well actually. But wax won't protect the bottoms from rocks! WHERE IS MARTIN!?!?!? (Martin at Rock lizard is helping me re design his super skink sliders around the Full Traction kit......it's definately take a bit longer than thought.)

Re: Rear Fender Trim Write-up, retaining the stock flare (Fender Trim Part 2)

Hey, nice pics and info. Im about to do exactly that. Question for ya- Im running the same setup for shocks (5150s in front and 5125s in the rear with lowered top mounts) What kind of rear bumpstop plate is that? Homemade? I have some plates that im trying to get to work using the top of the ubolts (plate on top of the nuts, then nuts ontop of the plate) And i like the look of your setup.. Any info would be great

Agent - Have you had a chance to take some pic? It'd be nice to see.

53Guy - Great write up on both the front and rear. Hope to do the same.

Where did you get the bump stop mount on top of the mounting plate for the rear axle?

Nice write up on the flares. I think I am definitely going to do this for the front and rear.
