    Does anyone know of somewhere I could get some fender flares custom made? I doubt they make them for a '54 Chevy pickup. I'm looking for some pretty good quality stuff but not for a WHOLE lot. Any ideas or suggestions would be appriciated.

    I don't see a listing on the Bushwacker site for anything that old but if you contact them they may be able to help you out.. If that don't work out you may have to figure out what style is the closest to what you need and do a little modification..

    On a side note you never did get back with me on the parts we talked about :confused: :whistle:

    They have them in rolls and you buy what you need. Kinda like the cheap jc whitneys but look much more like bushwacker style flares

    You sent me a few emails about those tail lights with the bulb holder.. You said you would get pics of the bulb holder the next day because it was dark..
    I never heard anything back about the pics or the price.. You said we could figure out the price when you sent the pics..

    No big deal I was just wondering if maybe you had forgot :D You can send me a E-mail at that same address so we don't clutter up the board..

    are you looking for a beuty look or a utilitarian look? the big rig flair stuff is like a tire tough durable and likes armorall if you want a utilitarian look id trim them and weld on a metal flair like the m715 jeep military trucks other than the flair material like the big trucks and jc whitney has only other thing i can think of would involve changing your wheel opening to fit another trucks flair witch would add a great deal to the custom look and be friendly on the eyes as well i know ford f150 flares are round opening and s10 wheel openings are round you might have to add to your fenders to make a round rather than tear drop opening but it could work very well (if theres pic of your truck i havent seen i appoligize for my ignorance) but im only guessing at flairs that would be somewhat close from what i remember

    PLEASE use more punctuation when responding. That entire response contains 1, and only 1, punctuation mark, and it is a lot more difficult to read because of it. I definitely appreciate the response - don't get me wrong, but punctuation would help a WHOLE LOT.

    Check out AWdirect.com
    They have the flexible rubber flares. Just order the length you need for all 4 and cut to length. I think I spent $80 for all 4 of mine

    Sorry man, I thought I was waiting on a response from you. I guess I lost track. The truck is at the junkyard now. Again I apologize for the miscommunication, brother. :doah: :(
