Pics of Metalcloaks with no flare

Just ordered a set of the overlines and just wanted to see how it looked with no flare. I tried looking it up but I got minimal results. All pics are greatly appreciated!

I run the arched fenders without a flare, you will learn to hate the spray but I still prefer no flare.

Here's a not-very-good shot of mine without flares


I always run with them now. I think it looks better, and even though I try to avoid mud, whenever I do run in to it it's nice to have the flares for some protection.

Thanks for the pics! I want to paint mine to match the body. Can you tell me about the process that it took to paint yours?

I'm fortunate that I was a college student who knew a guy that could get me into the big paint booth in the auto department. It cost me ~$100 for the two front fenders ( he did all the prep and paint). All the quotes I got from professionals for JUST the two front fenders without any flares was $400-$500. Never priced out the flares as I liked the black on the flares. I felt it looked more like the OEM scheme.

As far as doing it yourself... If you've done bodywork before, go for it! I haven't and even though I tried to paint half of the rockers I screwed it up and ended up re-doing it in black. I couldn't get it to look as good as I wanted. HTH

Jeez $400- $500 is rather leave it bare steel. Lol. But I'm gonna give it a go and if I mess up I can just paint it black!

Honestly, that's a pretty good idea. However, If you're wanting the rock sliders and flares black, I would have Metalcloak powdercoat them. This is after my experience painting mine black. It ended up being almost as expensive ( I used expensive KBS Coating), and I think I would have gotten a better look with the powder.
