Need ideas For flares

Here is the situtation
I was going to use yj flares but then I got a set a toy axels and that is where my problem started.
I want to run 35 by 15 tires so if I put these tires on then I will have to use a wider flare and I don't want to spend 500 bucks on flares. I would really like to make some sheet metal flares but I need a pic so if anyone has some good pic I could use could you send them to me
Thanx Chubby1

I amde some extened flares using plastic sheting similar to the type used for binders/folders–you should be able to get similar from an art supply store or a sign maker. I used this because it holds it shape well and doesn't sag with age and it bends but doesn't break when lent on. i attached to my Suzi by using a 3" strip of aluminium and sandwiching the plastic between the aluminium and the inner fender. The best thing is they don't add any bulk to the car when seen side on

Yes that is what I wanted
You are the bomb
Do you know how hard I looked to find something like this it is perfect right angles and everything I just cut out my wheel wells and they are the same angles it will fit perfectly
