    Fender Flares?

    I was at my new store and everyone at my store (obviously not used to seeing a 3g accord hatch) kept asking if it was a corolla...... which got me thinking about a few of my friend's AE86's and i got to thinking..... has anyone ever tried flaring the fenders on our accords? or adding flares like the CBY ones for the corollas?

    Personally i think that the Hachi's look pretty sweet with flares, and since our hondas are very similar i was wondering if a 3g would also look good with flares (or be a complete disaster). What do you guys think?

    i know that we have a little bit of flare from the factory, but there might be something to flares for bigger tires on the track (im going to see if i can borrow some to place on my car for comparison)

    Example: http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/m...Jr/0127kw2.jpg

    I think I saw an S30 or something and thought about making a set. There's a really good DIY for fiberglassing them over some kind of foam, I think they used a yellow Datsun 510, and I sort of went back and forth about it. If my car had a lot more rust, I would definitely go for it. I just don't want to hack perfectly good fenders out for something I may or may not like. You can technically leave the stock fenders intact, but it defeats the purpose.

    it would only be cool with low offset wheels, since that's the whole point, wide tires and low offset...

    Could people please stop contacting me about this picture. I thought it would be obvious the car wasn't mine as it says on my profile and my signature and in my build thread that I don't - and have never - owned a white hatch. So let me spell it out; I do not own the car in this picture. I do not own a white Accord hatch. I have not bought fender flares. I do not own fender flares. Your best bet to find some would probably be eBay.

    Did you buy the flares? If so, where did you get them? Thanks!

    EDIT: Sorry for bothering you...I should have looked a little closer and realized it wasn't your car before asking you.

    Re: Fender Flares?

    I know this thread is old but maybe ill get a response of who owns the white hatchi in the pic.

    I myself am doing flares on my hatchi and going to try going real low with a air ride kit. Ive always loved the ae86 and did have a 85 sr5 once. I picked this car cause no one in my town has one done up and it is just like the ae86 and the s12. One day id love to do the s2k swap on it and make it a tru rwd cause i think they should of made that car one. Their was a kid that had a fart can and cheap rims on it but i think he killed it cause i havnt seen it around this year.
    I wonder who does own that white 3g in that pic.....would love to see a build thread on it.
