Fender Flare – An attachment to an existing fender which extends the fender outward so as to more completely
cover the tire within. GCR p123

9. Body/Structure Level 1 and 2
a. Modifications
3. The exterior contour of all wheel openings may be flared. The fender/wheel opening or any
other part of the body forming the wheel opening, when viewed from the top perpendicular
to the ground, must cover the portion of the tire that contacts the ground while the car is at
rest. The flaring of the exterior contour of any wheel openings may not alter the basic body
GCR 464

I know I can replace the fenders with fiberglass ones and move the edge of the fender out. My Spridget flares are this way. I'm looking at a set of wheels that are 23mm offset instead of 38mm which moves the wheel out about .6 of an inch. The 38mm offset keeps the wheels and tires inside the fender, I'm way under the track width restrictions so that's not an issue. By adding only 1/2 inch, I still need to "flare" the fenders. I'm looking at making something that will attach to the side of the fender to come out over the tire. My question is with only 1/2 inch to add, is it legal to use thick plastic like the air dams are made of to extend over the tire? They would pop rivet on the bottom of the wheel arch and extend out more like 3/4 inch to cover the top of the tire. It does not change the contour from the side and it would cover that tire as it sits on the ground.

Thanks

That should meet the rule. You could also look at some of the aftermarket offerings that might be nicer in appearance.

Yep, I've seen that done before. Basically coming straight out from the fender, right? Parallel to the ground at the top, then contoured around the wheel well.

I think Jon Goodale maybe had a car done like that?

Make sure you make the flare extend fore and aft enough to cover the entire part of the tread visible from the top.

I'm thinking like 300lbs? get it up on it's tippy toes.


I haven't found 84 to 87 flared fenders just stock fenders. I'm hoping to make something that attaches to the fenders but I'd need extras if someone goes down my fenders. This is why I was asking about just putting the plastic on there. If somebody sideswipes me, it might just bend or pop out a rivet where the fiberglass would bust. I was sided swiped 3 times last year.

Sorry I forgot my disclaimer. I'm cheap. I mean really cheap. Those are really really nice. I'd be afraid I'd mess them up before even getting them on the car.

Cheap...

Glue these to the fenders, then use fiberglass filler to blend to the fender.
