Re: Best fitting fender flares

Good to hear. That's two guys who like them. They are high on my list now.

:roll: Wow, I completely missed the second question.
I concur with MikeY. The passenger side mirror was an option and is a mirror image of the drivers mirror. (I like puns too)

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Any TC rod and lower control arm can be made to work. Some aren't a gimmy though. Sam used stock TC rods, he cut two inches out, then sleeved them and welded them back together. He wanted mega caster haha. The only sway bar I know that works is the old DGR fab bar, the datsport might but I'm not su...

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Even more awesome! I'm not really into super low, but the fact that you can is always a plus.
Is there a estimated timetable for the LCAs and TC rods?
Can this work with stock LCAs and TC rods and then be changed over later?
If not going low would a standard front sump swaybar work?

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

This is so awesome. I can't express how much I appreciate the amount of work you guys have done to help out the 510 community. I've already started saving up to buy one of these. Question: I looked on the website. Is there going to be aan option where I can just click and get everything necessary in...

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

I really appreciate all of the time and energy you guy are investing in upgrading our favorite vehicle. I have had so many ideas and they have changed and morphed over the last 30 some years of 510 ownership. Some things I wanted to do in my 30s and 40s I wouldn't even consider now. So much more is ...

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Feel free to bitch slap me if you like, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making a completely new control arm, why not make it so that you can use a bolt on hub like on many newer cars? This would effectively shorten the bearing area giving you more room for a longer shaft. My thought...

Re: Best fitting fender flares

Refresh60, not a cheap option, but I think reproductions are available.

Re: Best fitting fender flares

Keep us posted on how long it takes to get them and you opinion of the quality and fit. I am considering getting a set or two myself.
Always good to have more opinions.

Best fitting fender flares

I'm looking for advice on bolt on fender flares. Anyone have any experience buying fender flares that fit well. I would prefer ABS, but excellent quality fiberglass is an option.
