Exclamation Putting ZG Flares on my Car some opinions would be nice..

They are riveted fender flares and I am getting them seemlessly molded to the car and cutting off the factory fenders to clear 255's for road racing..

I plan on running 25mm spacers with my street 225/45/17 set up..

Do i mold the dips for the mounting points aswell so the fender looks factory or do i keep the dips where the rivets are untouched... My car is 100% no half ass and i enjoy show as much as i do go, Im just waiting for these to get in and see how i can mount them for the cleanest look...

These are what they look like but i need one opinion on these...

I definitely vote covering rivet spots and molding into the body so it looks factory.

I'm partial to the clean, almost factory look.
