Default Karlton type arch extensions for classic gc8???

Hi guys,
Ive done a good bit of searching but have had no luck..

Basically after seeing the Karlton arch extensions for the newage body I was very impressed, that they are actually made for that body and fit it's contours.... Is there anything like this out there for the Classic 2dr shell..????

I have had arch extensions in my hand but they are all basically universal fitting, and are not that nice, don't fit to bumper well, don't go fully to bottom of arch etc etc..

No, there is nothing for your year.

Search for mannslayer' build. Universal flares look killer if done right.

ABW makes some pretty sweet flare kits for 2dr and 4dr classic imprezas. And they're in the UK so they should be fairly easy for you to get.

Universal flares fit and look ok but if you've ever seen them up close it is very hard to make them look great. And yes, mannslayer's car look really good but I wouldn't go so far as to say they are a perfect fit.

Whoa cool. are those karlton flares the GD ones modified to fit the GC or are they actually GC fitment flares?

If karlton is making GC flares then that would be super sweet. Any more info?

No, those flares are specifically made for GCs. I can ask if he still makes them.
