Theme Tuesday: Riveted Overfenders

10

Posting the AW11 MR2 yesterday, along with a car I saw Sunday night, made me realize that there has never been a Theme Tuesday devoted to riveted on overfenders.

A smooth wide body will always have it’s place, but there is something to be said for the lasting industrial appeal of over fenders. Done right they can often be the modification that really sets a car apart while enabling the use of generously proportioned wheels and tires.

My only problem is deciding whether or not I like them colour matched, unpainted, or contrasting colours.

Looks like there’s a chance only the rears are actually overfenders but this 510 was too awesome not to include
I’m sure one of you would have my head if I didn’t include at least one Rocket Bunny car
Keeping the SEMA repeats going just a bit, Bisi’s Porsche

Followed this build for awhile, I think it was Nissan powered

Solo’s IS300 is probably the best use of overfenders on an is300, the satin black is a nice subtle touch

I flip flop back and forth about overfenders on the 3 but from this particular angle I am a fan

Beautiful… though if it were mine I would forgo the side skirt extensions

More flared Miata… this car has come a long way since I saw it in 2010

Love that the lip/splitter comes out to meet the flares
over_fender_p_8
Not something you would expect to have bolt on flares but the look pretty damn nice here

Another car that If not included someone would have my head

  1. Long time fan of the bolt on color matched flare. I can’t I truly like one style more than the other, with some cars the contrast of non color matched flares looks tough, I guess it all comes down to the direction the car is going and car color, I.e. two tones or matte finish.
