What fender flares are these and where can I get them? They look great.

They look like the "ZG style" flares that are popular in the Z car world.

Be careful with your rubber brake lines being ziptied dirrectly to the tube. That's a great place for the tube to rub trough. Theres a reason factory had brackets to keep them off the tubes, it would be smart to add those.

My point was there isn't a point in making a bracket for these when I'm about to change to different lines which will use a different bracket.

Sometimes I spend more money doing it myself haha, wouldn't have it any other way. I enjoy cars for doing what you have done, figure out how to get what I want done the cheapest way possible, even if it's way harder, learning all I can along the way. I'm sure you have learned from what you have done and would improve it the next time around, I think people forget that's how these things work, especially on car forums where everybody is head engineer on an F1 team. Good job getting it done.

I think it looks pretty solid, I like the way you're going about this, this is what car mods are really about imo, flame and bash all you want but this is great stuff. Drive it hard and report back on how well they held up!
