Chopped the springs to get low for a while! I have the parts to build coilovers but trying to get through some other stuff first

I really liked the look of rabbit flares so I got a set and started putting them on

Thank you, that looks definitely the way to go. Sorry to bother with stupid questions, but I went on the link, does it matter what year? What model rabbit? Do you buy rears for the front also? Large inner well liner? Small? Do you possibly have a parts list? I know you did all the work to figure this out, but it looks too awesome not to share?.? Thanks

You will need two of each flare part# 95-20-59-1 and 95-20-59-2 placement was purely based on looks! I trimmed the flares of extra metal leaving a 2" flange. I trimmed the car to fit the new flares and welded them together. The quarter panel has 3 layers ls metal so I split them apart and placed the flare between the outer quarter skin and the other 2 panels for the ease of bodywork. less mud is better!

I will take some more detail pics so you can better see the process.

I have seen this process before, but I am confused as to the marking of the new fenders to the existing metal of the car.  How much do you cut off in relation to the new fenders?  Do you use some point of the new fender as a reference point.  Thinking about doing but want to be sure not to cut too much off.

 

BTW, that wheel looks "bitch'n"!!

Cutting the new flares is to your preference so you leave enough metal to flange behind the quarter/fender and Where you mark the car is basically just tracing the outline of the new flare on the quarter panel once you have it positioned where you want it...... And remember cut it long so you can slowly work yourself into the right size because it's easier to take away than add it back
