so. i have a 1982 prelude that is partially boso inspired.. i just got my 13x10's in but i'm exploring options as far as flare or bubble flares like the boso cars had

does anyone have any idea on a good way to start making my own bubble flares, or even where to purchase just nice fender flares for a reasonable price?

If you make your own, be prepared to spend a LOT of time. Fiberglassing takes time to learn to do it right. The idea is the same for making any fiberglass body panels. With this method you could go wild and make your flares look like whatever you want.

I seen that video the other day and have contemplated doing it myself.. I've done fiberglass repairs many many times on my other cars so i am a little confident, but i also procrastinate horribly when Im not busy working.
