Default Hacker/Wacker Clod flares!

lowslowTJ's at it again, this time with flares for the Clod body

Just like the Hi-Lift flares, they fit perfectly and look just like their 1:1 counterparts. Attach with Shoe Goo, paint 'em any color you like (they come cast in high-quality white resin).

Get some by PM'ing lowslowTJ.

Stay tuned for more flares, this time the Hilux/Bruiser gets the flare treatment

They look really good. I love my set. As Stu said, they fit great and help keep the tires from sticking out to far.

Those look awesome! My next project is going to be clod bodied, I already got the body, and I am definitely going to have to get some of these for it.

Ive got a set still sitting here that I havent used. I lost interest in my clod build....ugh. But I will be using the ones I got for teh F-350 finally. They are awesome and have great detail for being hand made.

Has anyone tried to screw them to the body as opposed to glueing them?

I know that Psygho was hell bent on bolting his set on to his F-350. I wonder if he ever figured out how. I am sure some very small machine screws and nuts would do the trick. I will look into it.

They dont even have to be in the indents you created. I was thinking to drill a few holes (3-4) and then counter shink them. Insert the screws, epoxy them inplace, then finish filling the hole with some putty and sand them smooth. Then just use the tamiya self locking/tighening nuts on the inside of the body with a little threadlock. Dont want to use nylone lock nuts or you would probably turn the screws inside the flare and have to re-putty and repair them.

I think these brass machine screws from McMaster-Carr would work on the toyota flares, and the others if the hardware mounting holes are enlarged a touch??

they are
Inch Thread Size
00-90
Thread Length
Fully Threaded
Length
1/2"
Decimal Size
.047"
Head Diameter
.089"

Part number:92482A235

they also have some 00-90 nuts....

I would be afraid of snapping them off, or ruining the look of the flare if I tried to screw them on using the molded in hardware mounting slot things.
