    ZG flares for 240z would probably work just fine with minimal modification I would think.
    That's probably what I would use for my RT134 if I ever go super wide.

    I used vw jettas flares, comes out alright, you have to make brackets out of metal that you can bolt on to the inside of your original fender, thats the way I did it.here are a few pics of a possible donor car



    this is how mine came out

    Just pull the metal out! Sometimes I just like to do things the hard way. I could have bought Celica flares, AE86 flares, Peanut flares or just some ebay universals but I wanted to do the work myself. To me metal looks better than bolt ons. Besides any flare you use is not made for a Corona and will require modification anyways.

    It really would not have been hard if I had not rolled my fender lips IN first and cut little reliefs in them. (Horrible idea!!)

    Not only did I have to pull it all back out but had to weld little filler tabs in to close up the spots where I had made the relief cuts.

    Now I know so after i get some 1" spacers on the front i will be flarring the front fenders too.

    Here is a pic of the progress. (I JUST PUT THE BODY FILLER ON AND HAVE YET TO SMOOTH AND SAND THEM)





    This is what the rear fenders looked like before. (Notice it cut the hell out of my new tire)

    Well it was a little more than that since I cut peices out of mine first.

    If your fenders haven't been messed with it should be as simple as heating and rolling/pulling to create the flares.
