We didn't get much response from all the people who said they were interested originally.

I haven't started chasing them down via PM yet.  We believe that the interest in getting a quality product exists in enough numbers to do this.  It is looking like the front flares will be reproduced first.  After they are available and people can purchase/see and touch them on a car or two, we will look at doing the back flares.  

We will also have to make a decision if the welt needs to be reproduced.  Original welt is probably pretty crispy by now but I don't know if people running the reproduction flares will want the welt.  I have seen cars with and without. 

I hope to hammer out a few more details in the near future.  I would really like to see some flares under the tree for Christmas!

VR,
Dave

Just a couple days ago, I saw someone on one of the Facebook groups asking what to expect to pay for a set. I'm sure you already have, but just in case, maybe check the "AMC Hornet, Gremlin, Concord, Eagle, and Spirit" group?

As an aside, I saw mention of the welting from a Toyota Tacoma being a workable substitute earlier in the thread; can anyone direct me to more details on this? I have a set of flares that are going to be installed pretty soon, so it'd be helpful to know in case there's any gaps.

I don't do facebook so I didn't see anything over there.  I have plenty of things keeping me busy without one more.  I might be missing out but I will probably survive.

We don't have pricing yet.  I am trying to get an idea of a price for the flares, boxed from the MFR.  Then I will have to see if we are talking about any surcharges for oversized/top load and shipping.  Unit cost at MFR is one price but the real price is when it arrives at your door.  I am hoping the MFR has an idea but I have a feeling his large parts are shipped via truck to another Automaker.

I don't know anything about a Toyota Welt.  I am game to take a look at price and availability but I don't have any details.  I would suspect that supplies would be limited unless it is pretty current or reproduced for a Supra or Celica.  If details become available don't be afraid to share.

VR,
Dave
