    do they sell like mabye a 4 inch wide strip of thin plyable but stiff plastic (not credit card thick, cheapo mousepad thick) that i can use to make some quick fender flares to get truck passed inspection?

    im thinking they would have this stuff at an auto parts store...any other ideas?

    A little on the thick side, but what about an old rubber bed mat? They are definitly heavy duty enough to be fender flairs. Decently pliable too.
