    custom fender flares.....ideas needed!!!

    I put Gozzard's fiberglass body tub on my 1976 FJ40. We cut out the rear of the wheel wells and I'm trying to find something to use for custom fender flares. I don't know if the TJ's would fit yet or not, and I'm looking for ideas. Anyone? :cheers:

    It all depends on how, or how much you cut out of the tub. Bushwacker made a flare for the fj40. that allowed for some trimming. The TJ flare allow for a little more than that (longer). If you cut it bigger than the the tj opening you might have to get creative.

    I was hoping to get creative ideas for fender flares, because I'm thinking I went bigger that the TJ opening, but I need to check to make sure. Thanks for the input!

    Ya know, when I switched to a tj flare, I also moved my axle back 4 ''.The new opening was going to be bigger than the tj flare so I welded the piece of fender that I had originaly cut out, back in. (I had saved it for 14 years):eek:
    I know you are dealing with fiber glass, But it is doable.
