Low-Profile Fender Flares (for rusty fender wells)
As far as I can tell, there are a few reasonable options for fixing my rusty fender wells: replacement fender panels, replacement bed sides, replacement bed. There's nothing wrong with my bed with the exception of a little bit of rust about the wells. Other than that, the paint is pretty good and there are ZERO dents/dings. I got a quote of $1200-$1300 to do the fender panels. Bed sides are a little higher.
In lieu of doing these things, I'm considering cutting out the small amount of rust and putting on some protective paint, then installing some low-profile fender flares. Problem is that I can't find any that aren't big and bulky. Any suggestion?
