Hi Man they have come up very well. Are you looking at doing more fibre glassing on the under side to get rid of the gap between the flare and the traditional rim. On my first van that was my entension but I never got around to it the idea was to stop and dirt/ water etc flicking off from the tyre and getting stuck in the tricky spot to clean.  ;D

im tossing up between glassing it or using fiberglass bog to mould out in there.

then ofcourse chassis black enamel then sound deaden'er then chassis black enamel back over the lot for that high gloss look.

I think glass would be better there would be alot of newtech (nz Fibre bog) to go in there to fill up the gap. It might take a bit longer to fibre glass it but it keeps everything nice and light and you doing a good job

As us kiwis say "All good things take time, you can't rush these things" my wife gets a bit sick of me saying this our bathroom is on the 3rd year of its revamp lol
