ahh, I thought I saw some welds to those fenders. I got a little scared.

Right now, its a bit "eek!" to me, but there is potential for them to look decent.

rex2nr well i did tack on the 2inches of sheet metal,but when installed they will be tacked ,then glassed on ,trust me they will look good ,i only have about 30 minutes in to these flares and havent even cleaned them up yet :) There is only a coat of primer on them so they dont rust

SETI20 i know right ,and if i did put flares on my crx id have wheel spacers to go along with them ,you 2nd gen guys have nice flares allready ,us first genners do not really have any :( just alittle hump

Dodo what do you mean ???honda flares ,i didnt even know they made honda flares ,or do you mean just the flares that are allready there ??? if thats what you mean ,thats what i did, but with 2 more inches added on the the stock 1/2 inch flares

shorte yes it is ,its a 3g 1987 civic hatchback ,that i was going to make into a bush buggie. But the frames was to far gone to do so ,i cut it in half and have been working on it off and on for a few months

That trailor is sooo old school!!! Kick Ass!!!

I figured the flares were in a very early state... I just didn't want to see them welded on and called done like some of these kids these days...:p

shorte
thanks :) most people like the trailor more then my car :( lol i wonder why ,but anyways it was pretty simple to do,well to where im at now lol,all i did was remove everything i didnt want cut (pretty much stripped)
removed the fuel lines and brake lines ,and ebrake cables.then made a mark where i cut and went to town :p
The cutting it self only took a bout half an hour ,most of it was on the floor boards ,then alli did was take some 1x1 square tubing and welded in a frame.All i pretty much have left is the rest of the body work and install some sort of window in the front.Since im going to be having a cust inclouser in the hatch for the yearly show out here, im thinking lexan.

i say giver its been really fun except for the rust ,but i really cant have the thing fall apart when the bass hits now can i :lol:

rex2nr thanks man i never seen one before ,and thought i might be the first ,i dout it though lol The flares will most likely take 3hours to complete and then what ever amount of time it takes to get them installed and cleaned up to a nice and clean look.i dont want them to look like al these guys that have flares and they look allmost out of place or are just to big for the car :lol: ''just silly'' but well see,you never know they might end up in the trash :lol:

daveb91 thanks ,as for the chrome fender cover things ,im not really a fan either but ,i gess they serve a purpose (blinding ocomeing traffic)lol
as for the crx it self i really like ,the color and rims but they dont mesh to well

ill have updates in the days to come I hope :wink:
