Default LIC Motorsports Rear Flares!

275's on an STI...NO PROBLEM!

Cutting and trimming of the skin are the first steps...measure twice, inspect, measure again THEN cut.


You'll have to cut the inner liner accordingly so that you can weld it back to the skin to re-create a solid QP.


Tacking it in place then going over it to be filled properly takes time, it's a timely process.


Grind off the residual so that you have as smooth as a seem can bee.



We're doing a two step sealer. The next series of picture I'll post on the QP will reflect that.



Not only are we using a seam sealer (as pictured), but an epoxy as well (no pictures unfortunately). The seam sealer helps to fill in the area of the welds but it's not as smooth as one would love, it does prevent the tire to be mauled just in case it were to ever rub.


The epoxy is to create a virtually smooth finish. This is so that when the over fenders are installed the backing sealer has as much contact and surface area as possible...just in case. The last picture reflect how uneven the surface can be.

Next up, stiffening of the wing due to major oscillation from the holes being a bit large in the QP and the mounting hardware needing more lock.











You can tow a car with this sucker now!

Thanks You Noah for offering such quality stuff! No riveting needed, a clean OEM look and we love it.

Client was/is so hyped about the car he's driving on racing slicks....in the snow just to show it off haha.

Would you say the flares are really only needed in the rear then?

Any side shots of the car?

I don't have any straight on side shots of the car.

If your running a 10+ wide rim with a suspension setup that is meant to handle it then the front can be modified for fitment but yes, the rears will need the flares regardless. Depending on offset, some 9.5's SHOULD be running flares as well, remember, it's not about how low you go but about the geometry of the suspension to allow proper clearance without sacrificing dynamic suspension travel.

I'm also much more of a fan of the LIC units than others, I've had clients bring in a different companies units and if it doesn't require the whole car to be put under a knife then the cost can be offset into other things like tires or brakes. Rivets, fiberglass, sanding and what not take more time and take more money so the LIC units are the best example of what track guys are going for IMO.
