blunblk68 I like those flares and that cobra front end looks wild. anyone have some pics of 1974-82. My 1975 vette has the 81 rear bumper. Looking for flairs to compare since the body is longer than the 68 to 72.

I didn't like flares at all till I saw pictures of your car a week or two ago. Jessica's working out freight costs for me now.

Mod75 I bought a lemans gas cap for my vette also. I see you mounted yours on the lid. I may also get rid of the reverse brake tail lights. Looks good without them. Flairs look Nice!
