Have been working on the front wheel liners for weeks. The insides had been undercoated and they were a mess. Took several steps of cleaning and wet sanding. Today weather warmed up a little and it was time to refinish using SEM products. The appearance turned out pretty decent, they still need to cure for a couple days. Hope getting them installed will not be to big of deal with the fenders etc in the way. If anyone has any installation tips would love to hear them!








Pushed in new staples partially.

Incredibly nice work! Wells look natural - not painted at all.

The wells actually go in pretty easy - the hard part is getting the edge getting tucked in around the wheel well lip. Obviously, you have to have the battery tray out, but you won't have any trouble.

Bottom up. Slide in towards the front of the car, snaking around the control arm and getting the leading edge of the well over the core support. Then up she goes and remember that wheel well lip. It is a lot easier than it looks - you won't have any trouble. Keep those updates coming.

Wheel liners back in, they took several weeks to restore, were a real basket case. Ordered a set of new at one point and sent them back they appeared vacuum formed and not injection molded like original. Trying to get finished up for the World of Wheels event in Indy Feb 9-11!
