B) Fit: Verify the fit of the flares to vehicle. (Some filing, sanding, or
cutting may be necessary to ensure proper fit).
C) Painting: (Optional) if paint is desired it must be done prior to installing
flares on vehicle. Clean outer surface with a good grade degreaser.
DO NOT USE LACQUER THINNER OR ENAMEL REDUCER AS A
DEGREASER. Wipe outer surface thoroughly with a tack rag prior to

your paint system manufacturer’s recommendations is required. Paint

D) Performance: Using larger Tires may increase the area required to
turn the vehicle. Some Tire/Rim combinations may require lowering
bump stops and or installing steering stops to prevent tire from
contacting flare.
E) Exhaust System: Modifications may be necessary to maintain a
minimum 4” clearance between flares and exhaust pipes. (Exhaust
gases should not vent directly onto flares)
F) Metal Protection: All exposed fasteners and bare metal should be
treated with rust resistant paint BEFORE installing flares. Spray inner
fender wells with undercoating AFTER flare attachments have been
completed.

If your flares already have the edge trim and pocket hardware installed, skip to Front Flare
Installation Step 4.
STEP 2 - EDGE TRIM INSTALLATION
A. Peel two to three inches of red vinyl backing away from Edge
Trim (GP1-0005) tape. Applying the adhesive side of the edge trim
to the inner side of the flare, affix the edge trim to the top edge
of the flare (the portion that comes in contact with the vehicle).
B. Press edge trim into place along the top edge of the flare
in one-foot increments, pulling red vinyl backing free as you
continue to work your way around the top edge of the flare.
C. FRONT FLARES ONLY: The edge trim must be cut to prevent
bunching and stretching at the forward end of the part where the flare
goes along the headlight. Refer to pictures A and B.
A
Start at the rearward end of the front flare and work
toward the front. At the outward, right angle curve in
the flare, cut a V out of the edge trim so when you
wrap around the part, the edge trim doesn’t bulge.
B
At the inward, right angle curve in the flare, cut a
notch in the edge trim so when you along the part,
the edge trim doesn’t stretch.
