Time for Pig Cheeks!

I know this has probably been beat to death by now, but I am hoping for any updates on what manufactures to stay away from and/or new folks making these flares.

My major concern is quality and symmetry between sides.

I know IE makes a set but I do not like the front fenders they offer (looking for the one's with the cut-out).

If I could get some info on who's making them and opinions on quality, symmetry, and any experience dealing with their customer service would be awesome.

I am completely open to using fronts from one manufacture and rears from another.

Thanks in advance everyone!!

+1 for Matt McGinn. He can make them to order, graft them to your existing metal fenders, and generally do / make whatever you want using old school sheer genius and brutally excessive talent.

I've seen them in person. They are amazing.

+ another point for Matt at SCR for metal cheeks.

A quick note worth mentioning, IE is playing around with making some molds of the FG fender cutout version. The Alpina front airdam is finished and will be going on the website soon.

Andrew...

IIRC the IE frt flares needed to be grafted on to a steel oe frame?...

if so, will the new cut out style require the same?

Andrew, will you be offering a plastic Alpina style airdam like the Airdam you already offer or will it be in FG? Id really love to find someone making a plastic Alpina copy.

interested in purchasing a full set front and rear as pictured in the thread.

I'm using them on my 68 1600 Bristol w/M42 conversion. Also, considering a fiberglass hood to shave weight.

I can paypal 500 to pre-order

Thanks for the praise. We make fenders from scratch here at the shop. In fact, we're working on a couple of sets for customers right now.
