    where to position fender flares on body panels.

    Hey guys, I just got some fender flares for the car and I'm not sure where i'm supposed to be lining them up. The car has a fender line about 1 inch from the edge of the fender. Like if you go to the edge of the fender there is a line that runs similar to the edge of the fender about 1 inch up from edge all the way around. Now do I line my fender flares with that or higher up so that the bottom of the fender flare is level with the bottom of the original fender. Now my point of reference is the middle of the fender at the highest point in (top of the arch).

    A lot depends on what kind of car you are putting the flares on. For installation on a TA22 here is how the guys at JDM legends do it.

    I would do it so the flare is even with the bottom of the fender. I would suggest mocking it up using blue painters tape and see what looks good.
