Bielzebub It was also recommended to me that I visit Fastenal here in town and they could probably help me. I hope so, the spot where those small flares is UGLY!

Bielzebub I am having the same issues. I removed my stock flares and replaced them, but the stupid hardware that comes on it with those rivet bolts or whatever rusted out and I ended up popping them out. The only problem that I am having now is attempting to put them back on. I was able to get the large flares on, but the small "dressing" flares that go behind the fronts I am having trouble with. The two holes toward the back of the smaller flare are inside the cab, but are covered by sheet metal inside. I know they make anchors or something, but I am trying to figure out the best thing to use so that I can cover up the unsightly holes I made ripping the rivet bolts out. any suggestions?

JVLemur I'm down to about 20 mins a piece and multiple scratches on my arm. To paint them I'd just wrap newspaper all around and spray them on the body. Too much a hassle to just for some bedliner, and plastidip is cheaper haha.

Jwolfer It took me about 2 hours longer than it should have just because they are such a pain!

JVLemur Subbed, they're a pain! No space to work with at all.

Best fender flare replacement hardware?

After struggling with the fender flares I finally got them off. I am just bedlining them so I need to put them back on once I finish but I don't want to deal with the frustration of the stock hardware. Does anyone have any good suggestions? I can't weld or anything so any recommendations are appreciated.
