Fiberglass Fender Flares

My problem is that the snows about to fly and my engine is exposed to the elements. Obviously, my inner fender wheel wells wont fit. Any ideas? ASAP!!! Thanks fellas.

get you some of the material that people use to make the home made gap guards......attach it as high up as you can and drape it down to the inner frame rail....

yea, i cut the stock. then used that garbage can to seal the 4"ish gap between it, and the fenders. in the 4th pic, you can see where the stock one is still bolted to the original spot. i never cut them.

you can kinda see what it looked like before i added the GARBAGE CAN.
