Smile 135i Fender Flares, rivet style

I have a company looking into making add on Flares, they did the Berk 135i fender flares, wish they still had the molds for that which is pictured below, so they will be doing a affordable rivet style flares for front and rear, which I am sure most people would be interested.

I will keep everyone updated as things move forward.

Please start a interested list:

Also - would they be doing the front as well? If they don't have any plans as of yet would they be willing to accept input? There is a lot of interest in the other thread.

yea I asked for front ones too, my only input so far was I like the rocket bunny stuff and sent pictures like the M3 ones, and if people want no rivet you can have a shop blend them in, I sent the company the link to this thread so any input I can throw there way

Awesome. Where are they based? Do they need a car to work with?

he wants to make flares on his spare time so not sure how quick this will unfold but who knows if we show a lot of people interested might push things who knows

he was thinking more of just a simple 4 corner bolt on over stock obviously have to cut flares then bolt up

I don't think it would be a bad idea to do it in more than 4 parts. Maybe 12? Each flare would be comprised of 3 sections. On the front it would have a part that attached to the front bumper, fender, and then a small piece that could transition into the skirt. For the rear another small skirt transition piece, then the main part on the body panel, then another tapered part that extends onto the rear bumper (may be unnecessary).

Excuse the lousy sketches. Working from a hotel room and had to copy things from google with screenshot and paste them into word to print them on the hotel printer. Also used the white out pen from the hotel business center...

There is a large vent behind front wheel well. I think the flares will look better if they ride high enough along the body.

Why not just have one extra small piece that bolts to the skirt? I think if it's simple the build up should be slightly more gradual.

not really feeling the OP pic, the drawn one by MBM6F looks to be more promising.
