    Bolt on Fender Flares

    Has anyone tried fender flares from another platform? I know many platforms use the 240z flares (fiberglass flares are only $200 for all 4). I did a quick photoshop overlay and it looks like our fender opening is too damn big and the 240z is not wide enough.

    240z ZG flares...


    The stance I want for my car...


    Anyone try this before or have ideas? I do not want Cianci wide fenders.

    There's a Stealth in my area with chrome ones and I want to shoot that car. They don't work with our fenders or any body lines for the matter. Wide body fenders are the way to go.

    Not only n but HELL NO. Those are the gaudiest looking things on the earth. Cianci's fenders blow those out of the water in looks.

    As I stated, not interested in wide body fenders. Just flares. By the way, I asked for information, not opinion.

    I personally think they will look great on a 1g which has a similar angular styling as the skyline pic I posted. I like the idea of fitting some bigger rubber, but I do not like the monster truck look with tires sticking out past the fenders, that most of the 3S owners do. It works for others, just not my style.

    The hard part will be finding a flare that will work with our enormous fender opening. If anyone, has suggestions that would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Try ebay for some generic ones.. Your probally going to have to cut and modify them a bit.

    Yes those are the flares I want. Do you know specs? Body kit looks hideous though!

    I got no idea but it works on that car. Don't think they would work on a Gen2 though.

    Why would they not work on a 2g car? They use the same fenders.
