Looks nice in the pic. I see that you uses the front flares in the rear too.

cool, I got mine too

I will work on this project to be ready this summer

I'll leave black and install them on its

is what I should install the black wrx sides skirt or keep only a flare ?

I'll probably install wheels spacer to go the same width as the flares

Pretty cool, wish i had some flares laying around. Unfortunely i had to make my flares
From scratch for my GR Sedan. At one time there were no flare/widebody options (affordable) for any subaru lol . Good job

I have had this thread bookmarked for months... Finally just ordered some.

I will be using them for the rears only, as I am going with a sedan front end. Ill be sure to post a pic of the finished product here. It probably wont be til summer most likely though

You should use the front flares for the rear arches if you are not doing the front.

Yeah, I though I read that they fit better somewhere. I had planned on mocking up both to see which were better. Are the front flares wider as well?

Yes slightly. Plus they don't have that flat, protruding piece at the rear. Post pics when you're done. I've been considering a sedan swap myself.

I imagine the fronts would require just as much if not more trimming along the door seal area??

I will definitely post pics. It may be a while, I have quite a bit I need to take care of before I can even think of mounting my new wheels but I will post pics of progress as it is made!!

The trimming isn't that bad. I did mine with a hobby knife.

Yeah, I am not too too worried about it. I will probably use a die grinder with a cutoff wheel... I am just looking forward to it. I have a ton of plans for this spring, and it's one of those things where I need to accumulate parts as I go, then all of the sudden everything will be done all at once, lol.
Still need coilovers, sedan front bumper, and fenders which will be a couple thousand :P


These are a GREAT solution for the rear for me, I hope they are wide enough...
....because *cough*

-flamesuit equipped- I am sandblasting the centers and rusting them before a clear coat. Hopefully I wont have to resort to giving them to my gf for her golf

Another one joins the mk2 flare club! Nice job looks real good. Considering painting them? Grimmspeed spray paint is a pretty good match.

I have considered it. I even have the Grimmspeed paint already. Just trying to see if I like it like this first. How did you prep? Adhesion promoter?

Cleaned with mineral spirits, adhesion promoter, primer, paint.

Painted on the car to avoid the paint cracking. Just taped everything off really well.

Jor_El very nice work. I like them unpainted.

If you added black underskirt addons and some kind of low profile rear bumper lip it would be perfect I think.
