Just get a set of Black Watanabe wheels that fill out the stock guards nicely. Job done. No hassle from the fuzz.

In 10 years time everyone is going to be removing flares like we remove sunroofs from the 80s. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

If you still want Flares in a year or 2 sell me your Watanabe wheels at a good price and I'll gladly buy them. So you can butcher your guards ;).

Whatever  ::) , oh those factory optional flares that are still cool 40 years after the fact... yeah ill be saving the metal so i can put it back in. Luckily i still have my matching numbers L24, so when i realize the mistake i made with putting a stroker in I can make it nice and slow again, ya know when going fast isn't cool anymore.


You're all a bunch of flare hating Nazis.  ::)

Gav if you read the whole thread you will see that he said he doesn't want to spend much money on wheels and tyres but wants it to fill out guards, maintain factory rolling diameter, be 16 inch in diamter (no exceptions), and be completely legal, and look like te37v's or watanabes.

Champagne taste on a Pepsi max budget.

So it's true.

I don't have a matching number L24 for my Safari Gold car, so I'm stuck with a slow stroker motor also ;). In fairness I'd do the flares also but I just don't have big enough kahuna's to actually chop up the guards to fit them out properly. I was of course taking the mickey, as I'm sure you are too.

The OP wants to stay legal, look cool and have some decent looking size wheels, hence I think the compromise is the requirement of flares, you don't need them to have a cool Z.

As Mark (Mossy's) car shows.

Definitely has been a long time. Finally getting around to spending some more time (and money) on the Z!

T-minus 3 weeks until I can start taking it out to Friday night QR!

Too true! Mossy's car looks bloody fantastic. Really makes me want to reconsider my colour choice and steal his! :D
