Ahh, looks so good I overlooked it! I thought there would surely be a bigger gap. Well done.

I freaking love these. Not sure I could do it as I don't have the equipment, but definitely going to put this on my wish list if I were to ever get enough money...

Did you have to do anything after cutting the fender to prevent it from rusting where you could see bare metal? Just curious how that works or if it's needed.. Thanks.

Also, anyone got any pics of a black Camaro with them? Do they stand out as much as they do on the other colors? I tried searching but couldn't find these on black, found other types just looking for this specific type though.

+1

Also, I see in both sets of pics that the person is working on a black panel. Is it safe to assume those are practice pieces and that I dont need to remove my fender?

hello, the black what a test run just to make sure i was going to like the look of the vent on the fender, it was also good practice. When i did them on the car, i did not have to remove the fender. set the template, trace, cut, prime, install
