cut out flares on \'75 Power wagon

I'm doing a backyard budget paint job on my '75 Power wagon. The wheel openings are in bad shape. Lot's of cancer. I'm thinking of cutting them out and installing flares.

Just wondering if anyone has used Bushwacker's cut out flares? If so how is the quality of them? Also looking into some cheap flares from JC Whitney. They come in 25 foot rolls. I'm kind of leary on the quality of these, but I can really hack on the body when I can get 25 ft rolls of flares. Thinking with enough cutting I might get some 38's under there.

The rubber flares are cheap and look horrible and after a while they begin to sag on the top. The cut out flares are much better and they come with either the smooth look or the recessed screw hole look across the top edges.They are more money too and give you more tire coverage...

Re: cut out flares on \'75 Power wagon

Thanks for the advice. I haven't seen anybody using the cheap rubber flares. I guess I know why now. Think I'll spring for the bushwackers. Thanks.
