    I have bacon fenders from my 255's even though I rolled and pulled all of my wheel arches. Does anybody have experience with the ebay wheel arch trim? It looks to be modeled after the oem accessory trim that has been discontinued, however it says it is for the sedan. Are the wheel arches different in size from the hatch to the sedan? Here is a picture of the product I am referring to. Thanks for any info. Screenshot_2016-10-25-14-06-45.png

    I agree. After thinking it over some more I have decided that I just need to figure out some way to afford getting my car painted lol. Need to just suck it up and replace both bumpers and get the body work done. Not worth the time or money to just put a bandaid on it. You can delete this if you want btw.

    @Raider just a heads up if anyone is interested. The factory part # for the oem accessory flares is BN8F-V3-120F a quick ebay search pulls up a few from overstock sellers. Prices are about the same as the knockoffs from China which I verified will not fit the 5 door model. Not that any one wants these lol. I just can't put the money into body work right now... need built motor!

    Yeah I'm not ready to go that wild with it lol.
    Yep. I've been thinking about them for a while. Along with the couple places where the tires got into my fenders, there is also a dent right in one of those body lines in the rear qp. That spot has been bugging me since I bought the car 3yrs ago lol. We shall see how it goes, I have a set in the mail!

    He should do the Mazda 5 rear brake conversion. Looking like he has tiny rear brakes on those wheels! Looks good, though :D
