Been trying to look for fender flares for my 17 si coupe.... couldn’t find anything so I decided to buy stock fenders and see what I could do.....
I still have to get them painted and figure something out for the rear, but i would appreciate some input.
just for clarification purposes.... it was COVID lockdown, and I’ve never ever done any type of body work before.

first picture is white sandable primer, second picture is black primer before block sanding.
Currently working on the rear fender flares.... will be more of an accent than flare, and will hopefully match the front flares.

here’s a pic of my car, and the fenders before painting.

feedback would be appreciated

the pandemic is certainly making people do alot of things they normally wouldnt do to stay busy.. im looking forward to seeing those fenders on your car how they look. just take your time with em, preparation is 80% of a good paint job.

thanks, I’m picking the paint up today, but even when they are done, I’ll have have to figure out how much the wheels need to come out and what offset rim I need to make it look decent.
I will post pics of them after paint, but it may take a while, I’m back to work and working tons of hours. So not much time.
Appreciate the feedback.
