    Haha precisely.

    I've figured this much out: I can wait a month for the Amazon ones, or get some from LA that would cost $50 more for shipping. The problem with the Amazon flares would be the insane shipping cost to return them to Russia. Guess I could just post them on Craigslist. I can't believe, for how popular these things seem to be, that there are so few places that sell them.

    Also, I called Cryious Garageworks, the guys who built the World War Z Camaro, and they said that, because of all the interest towards the flares they made for the car, they're planning to make molds of them and sell them within the next 12 months. Might just have to wait for that.

    There was a ‘69 Mustang in CAM-T at the local autocross this weekend that had the Amazon flares from Russia and said they worked fine. The problem with our cars, from what I can see, is the body isn’t anywhere-near flat around the fenders, so I can see why Cyrious Garageworks had to custom-make their own.

    I was curious about that. The flares may be pliable enough to sit nicely or perhaps have a slight curve to begin with.

    They just posted this on Instagram. Looks good. Real good.

    I’m going to go ahead and order the Amazon ones and see how they fit. Might as well try it out to report on it for everyone here.

    The flares from the Spectre Camaro are made by Campbell Auto Restorations out of Cali. They are modeled after the IROC flares offered by Showcars Bodyparts in Ontario Canada. Either one can be attached by molding, sheetmetal screws or even rivets.

    They are the custom one-offs that they made, and will be making molds of to sell to the public in a year or so.
