There's nothing actually wrong with it, I was just kidding there. I built it completely from scratch. The pic w/ the flares is a photo shop of a model car but the flares are supposed to be the ACI L88 flares.

Hey Twin Turbo, I sort of got that it was a joke, hence the answer " it looks to cool!" anyway,

The reason I was asking about the flares, is they seem a different shape to the L88 flares Ive seen. L88 flares I have seen sometimes seem more like wings added to the side, very shallow angle to the top of the projection of the flare. The flares as those on your signature seem to have a steeper angle attaching further up the original guard - Bugger, a model? (very good model by the way).

Will have to keep looking!

Theres a difference between ACI and the other flares, there's the mudlfap design and the non mudflaps. I made my own flares because nothing on the market will fit w/ 16.50 wide tires.

Hey Twin Turbo

Looked on the ACI site, but they seem standard L88 flares, and only one type, am I missing something?

How about offering a mould of yours? :naughty: they're stunning!

what kind are you looking for? Compare aCI flares to ecklers/vanacor and others. You'll see there are 2 types and basically 3 versions, the aci flares no mudflap, just a flare edge, the flare edges mudflap style and the mudflap styles as almost complete quarter panels. I still have a lot of work to do on mine, they are nowhere near smooth enough to pull a mold from and they're over 5,5" wide so you'll need 12 or 13 inch rims to fill them properly.
