        yeah now I'm irritated.

        I've been very complimentary to Custom Image Flares. I think they are quite helpful and their flare is the best looking on the market. Today I got a "you don't know what you're talking about" from Josh Powers - the guy who owns CIC. Fair enough, so from here on out I'll start really documenting how terribly these things fit. But let's start with that last picture above....notice how the seam is well below the bonding point to the upper panel? I made a mistake - I presumed that they make the flares in mirror to each other... in short, that the top parting line of the flare was the same as the line that is the top of the fender.... it's not. It's that far off....

        Wait until you see the door seam.... they didn't get enough material so I'll be making a new door gap.... all because they were careless in their mold and parting process....

        You're welcome Josh, let's see what you think of what I know now.

          Never irritate a perfectionist who argues for a living and relies on extensive documentation to perform his day job.

              with pictures, he went from "you're lying" to "we had to make some improvements" in 30 minutes or less. I was then informed that his ego was bruised. I told him I'd sign the bruise if he'd like. no word on whether or not he wants me to sign it.

                            Obviously others are seeing them too.. What I don't get is I see most others' too well except Stiney's VW ones.

                                You canít see my latest pictures in the picture thread? I am guessing you also canít see the ones I fixed in my old Der HackenLaden Werks thread either.......I could see some of the old PB ones, so I left those alone, and the fixed ones are Imgur.

                                sounds like perhaps Bob is having trouble with only the Imgur Picts? First I have heard of that issue. Anyone have some help for Bob?
