What are your new flares gonna hold on to when the rest of the fender lip rots away? I would use the $300-500 to repair the rust and forget the flares. Around here, flares are just tree magnets anyway.
I am also looking for a set of fender flares for an 85 FJ60 that I am picking up tomorrow. I went to ww.sor.com but had no luck finding a set for my 60. Any ideas? I see you found them for $369, which is better than $549 on ebay
