John, 

Not sure that I will be able to give you more than I have regarding fit. The flares will be test fitted on a car prior to the first product being sent to buyers just like the spoiler was. The front spoiler by design was reinforced to make it sturdier that the OEM piece. The flares will be inherently more flexible due to their design. I'm currently working on finding the flare welt or a suitable alternative so that they will fit as good if not better than OEM.

I think a Toyota truck with wheel fairings used the same welt.

JJ, 1970 is correct, there was not enough interest in the flares to be done. If you want to reach out to Mirror Image Plastics and see if they have any left. I still have the NOS flares if there is any interest.

Thank you very much, I would be in for a set or two for sure if it is still viable.

I have a 79 Spirit AMX H code car and the flares and air dam are cracked so bad that 
we can't fix them any more. I will reach out to them and see what's up. Thanks again.

I hope you have success with finding the flares. I'm up for 2 sets as well and you are up for two than we only need to have 8 more sets confirmed to start the process. Who's in?

With the new interest in the flares being reproduced I reached out to Mirror Image to verify that they can still do the flares. There appears to be about 6 sets that are spoken for out of the 12 that are needed to be purchased initially. Basic price appears to be around $700.00 plus or minus for shipping.
12 sets at $700.00 is $8,400.00. If there are 6 sets presold at $700.00 that equals $4200.00 so there needs to be either a front person for the $4,200.00 or we need more presold to cover the start up. I'm including myself in for 2 sets for my car and would be willing to buy 1 or two more to move the project forward. That is a $2800.00 commitment to make this happen on my part. The full $8,400 has to be raised before production can start and I just cannot swing it on my own.

Any ideas or thoughts to help make this happen please feel free to comment. I think it would be a major boost to the value of these models to have these available.

Thanks,

Dave Garson
