I've seen people customize GNX flares to fit other models, but it is a fair amount of work due to the differences in wheel wheel openings...

Buy one of these: http://www.eastwood.com/15in-adjustable ... gauge.html

Then buy the GN fender flares, transfer the shape to the flare and trim CAREFULLY!

Should make the job easier and the finish work a lot easier.

And....put your location in your ID. Kind of a rule here.

I too was gonna get some flares for my wagon, like the GNX. But, you know how that goes, my fiberglass parts building list is getting too long as it is, lol.

I would love to see the GNX flares on something other than a Regal if someone has pictures!
