How to mount them there ZG Flares


Recommended Posts

Well john even still I went out and measured my car, and 6" would make the car into a off road machine. In fact 6" up in the front is to the top of the fender. I would believe 4 but thats about it. I cut mine up rougly 2.5-3". If you mounted them 3" higher then mine... more power to ya ;)

 

Zowner - They are Classic Datsun flares. Those guys are great to work with, I wouldnt order from anybody else.

  I will vouch personally that this is the way they are installed in Japan, and in the instructions that came in the old "Yellow Book" for competition prep in Japan---maybe Alan can add so

Yes.   No. Never, ever bridge a gap greater then the filler wire.   You can also stretch the metal in the inner fender with a hammer and a dolly.

Here's the 1/4 panel and wheel before I started cutting. Looking at the marked lines again I probably only cut up between 4.5 and 5", not the 6" I stated above. Sorry about the confusion.

And here's what it looked like after and this measurement is probably why 6" was stuck in my head. I wanted to get at least 6" of total wheel travel.

The 1/4 panels on this car were pretty rough so it was hard to get a nice looking opening, but once the body shop gets things straightened up I can install the flares and cover up things. Plus, its a race car...

Thanks for the pictures.. this should be a good thread when its done with. YOu did cut away a good amount of meat, Ill have to do the spring thing and see what im looking at. I will say I like the way the inner fender worked out, definitly a good way of doing it.

 

 

At any rate for those of you interested in ZG install kits I will have a few ready to ship out monday, pm me if you are interested.

Has anyone smoothed the ZG;s once installed to hide the recesses for the bolts? I like the ZG flares, but would like a sleeker look. I want to get away from the 4X4 flare look.

Why don't you just look at some different flare styles? The MSA Street flares are pretty similar to the ZG's in shape, a little bigger by the looks of them, and don't have the recesses for the bolts. Also the MSA IMSA flares, or the Jim Cook Racing flares would work.

MSA no longer makes the Street Flares
