You can repair the latch mechanism...what fender flares are those?

With some proper wheels, the car might not look so bad...

I understand the passion for modding the car... but because your broke that doesn't justify the amount of fail on that poor car

Wow, talk about thin skinned. News flash, Paul, people on the intarweb have opinions, and not all of them are going to match yours.

I wanted to see the fender flares, but I guess I won't have that opportunity since you've edited all the pictures away.

Sorry, I'm not doing well right now. It's not just this site, legacygt.com slammed it, people around town...it is, it's complete fail. It sucks to drive something that's mocked everywhere and have absolutely no way of doing anything about it...the fender flares are junk and don't fit at all. Sorry again, but I really need encouragement not opinions.

Paul.
I thought it looked ok. I wasn't looking to pick it apart though.
I thought it looked very unigue.
I don't know you and it just may match you and your personality.
I encourage you to continue to enjoy your car and feel free to take pride in the work you do.

Some people don't like my car simply because it has a Pinstripe on it when I bought it.
**** em.

Why not? It is a GT, and it is a genuine SpecB.

Even the most strict of the label-readers should still approve.....

I know right?? But that's how they're labeled and I tried them the other way just to make sure...i don't know. but i think i've came up with a good way of making a clean wide body, so once some skrill comes my way i'm gonna try it out.

No offense, but the red legacy in the second picture is the best :-P

I think I'm just a sucker for wagons.

One of these days I might see about doing flares on mine to fit some wider rolling stock, so I'm always looking for options.

Pat,
They're made by AIT Racing

This is the link for you:
http://www.aitracing.com/shop/index....oducts_id=1024

I looked for almost 4 months and these looked like the best ones. I'm not very happy with the fitment, but I couldn't return them. I've also never worked with fiber glass, so if you or someone you know can glass well, they might come out really good. Good luck! lemme know what you come up with.

Go and check out wagonofdoom's ride on Sl-i.net

He used s13 flares and riveted into the body, looks really good. and match perfectly with the body kit he's using.
