Default Installation of the new Karlton flares from Suby Flares

We recently did two installations from Suby flares for these two Subaru's

Both cars came out really well.

You guys can contact them at [email protected] for more info on buying the flares.

One was a 05 sti






The other was a 05 wrx wagon

Is the black trim between the flares and the fenders part of the flare kit or something you guys did?

Not part of flares, it's what's most commonly used to prevent a ton of scratches to the paint and or seal it from gaps.

I thought that might be what it was. Same kind of stuff that RWB uses to seal his flares. I like the function as well as the look.

Maybe DTM will volunteer some trade secrets and tell us what they used.

Customers opted for the weather stripping because it makes the flares more seamless and it protects the paint from all the vibrations. The weather stripping is 20 per wheel arch.

Nakai actually uses like a black sealant like silicone when he applies it to his flares.

Were the ones on the wagon normal sedan flares or made for the wagon? Anything additional needed in fitting the rear?

They're called Fender Gimp . Popular in the truck crowd as they love to put flare attachments as well.

Bushwacker makes em. Can be found on Amazon, SUmmit Racing, Etc.

I have them on my Juggernaut flares. If you really want to cancel out the gaps and make the flares look more oem-like, you can "lay-up" some fiberglass on the flares but this takes a lot of time.

DTM - lovely work guys. The flares look really nice on those STIs. Any issue on the fitment of the flare kits ? (ie - minor trimming / adjustments)

There was some trimming/shaving and some modification for them to fit. The weather strip we used actually is a oem part.

I Would need to take a look at the LIC rear fender flares because from the pics I saw of them they weren't any rivets or and they weren't molded on. I can give a better quote once i see them in person.

Gotcha. Yea the LIC flares dont have any rivets on them. I believe they are installed using some type of panel bond/adhesive. Heres a pic I found of someone installing the rear fender flares.
