Need HELP!..with flairs

I need some help, Info [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] with TJ flairs going on a cj.
The rear one are no trouble, it's the front ones that are giving me a headache, it seems that thats a whole lot of wheel well to cut out, is there anything in the aftermarket to cover up the gap or sure I try to make a sheetmetal piece to do it? I'm REALLY not a body man, "jeep body" any help is reallllly needed.


Thank you, I mean really thank you, really really thank you!

Re: Need HELP!..with flairs

When I put the TJ flares on the front of my CJ I really attacked them and took out a large section of the wheel well, then just welded some patches back in to fill up the holes, I have a few picts of it at:

Thats just the info I needed. No more worries I can do this now. You sure have a lot of useful material on your web page,
I'm gonna need a whole evening just to read it all.

Thanks to both of you, appreciate the help.

Re: Need HELP!..with flairs

Any comments for putting TJ flares onto CJ fiberglass fenders?

Re: Need HELP!..with flairs

Here's an e-mail I received last night for Mr. T. Greening,
He did it on his glass tub, I removed my fenders an hour ago and I can easly see what I have to do now.

Thanks to everyone for the info and inspiration.

Steve


Mr. Greening: Are you working with glass or steel body parts? The install I did was with glass. I cut the fenderwell, flush up against the fender, from the bottom rear edge up to the top of the fenderwell about 3-4" past where the fenderwell becomes flat. I took this piece and slid it back towards the tub several inches and then glassed it back onto the fender. All the gaps where filled using glass mat and resin. I've got some photos of the fenders while this was happening. I assume this is what you are questioning?
