fender flares on stock body?

I'm in the process of doing a lot of body work. Nothing fancy but rather converting my 95 TSi to a 99 GS-T body. I'm not too big on body kits and such but I do like fender flares. Has anyone ever put fender flares on the stock body? If so have any pics? I am curious as to wether it will look good or look like crap.. it's kind of one of those things that can be borderline unless seeing it for first hand.

fender flares look great on stock body in my opinion. I have no pics but have seen it done. Check around google. Im sure someone has it hosted.

I see the flares on with the blitz kit but how about just the stock body? I am still having trouble finding some pictures.

i think that if it were to be done in the same manner as fender flares for Lancer Evolution IV-VI, it would look amazing lining up into the 1997+ eclipse bumper.

I think a 2g with flares would look AMAZING....having the rims stick out a bit under the flare would give the car such an aggressive apperance.

Don't tell me you've never seen the pics of this...



Yes, it looks sweet as hell.:hail:

If I had a 1g I'd definitely do that, but just smooth the flares into the body lines of the car.
