HI lads,
Well what a shamozzle i am going through at the moment.
After getting Freddy to bang me up some ZG flares before
Xmas and ship them so i could fit to car, waiting waiting waiting.
Get call from freight company saying they have lost the package.
Now that's all good and dandy but i cant go ant further till Ive cut the guards.

So as topic says, Is there any one here in Adelaide who has a set i can borrow
just to mark out so i can cut the guards. I will pick up and drop back with a
6 pack of your choice.

ASAP
regards
Paul

You can borrow mine.  They are from MSA though, so there is a risk that Freddy's might be slightly different.

Thanks guys.
Just spoke to Freddy and he is concerned that
Other brand flares may be different enough to cause
Me grief.
so would be good if I could borrow some Topstage flares.

do you know where Chris got them from Mick
Roberto thanks mate I will try to get topstage ones.
Cheers
Paul

Have a set sitting in my shed, and am only 10min away from you.

I doubt they're topstage though, but the offer is there

Hey
Thanks lads, What i will do is call the freight company in the
morning and see if they have found the parcel. If not i might grab
Ryans flares and sit them on with tape and call Tai and compare
some measurements over the phone.
How does that sound.

Cheers
Paul

No problem Paul. I will put up some pics of mine tomorrow with measurments for you aswell. They should be the same as most just the thickness/finish is different and some are trimmed abit shorter on the ends. Topstage ones are pretty much the same as Alfa Motorsports ones just abit thinner and more flexible but finish is worlds apart. Alfa ones are very stiff and brittle and don't shape to the body well as there is no give but the shape and size  is the same.

Cheers Tai
i wont be drilling any holes, its just purely so i can cut
the guards and reweld the rear inner and outer back together.
Then i can matte clear the car and just bolt the flares on when and
if i ever get them.
