I got the fender flares done fitted, then mounted yesterday, was a real pain, can't expect the self drilling screws that come with them to go in without drilling, Econolines have 2 layers of steel in the rear fender lip. I tried dupli-color color match, crappy paint would not adhear to them, was suggested to use adhesion promoterfor use on plastic, nope, still doesn't help. After my faliure, and I trued, 4 cans worth and just couldn't get coverage, I went with Krylon Fusion, no where near the right shade of white. I plan to repaint the lower portion of the van, where the rough texture paint is, rock protection, going with black maybe, doing the flares in the same color.
I got lucky, was only $20 due to open box, dang things sell for $179 a pair, needless to say, front will be without unless another box opens up. I hated having to clamp them on, pencil where they contact the body, then grind and repeat till tighter fit, nothing is a direct bolt on.
Need some cut out fender flares for the F-150, eleminate the rust holes around the opening, but they're about $200 a pair.
Top pic is so good, I made it my wallpaper on the computer.
