Hey guys, I'm building 2 914-6 GT's and was wondering what's the go to source for the front and rear valance and rockers to match the GT flares? Getty? Auto Atlanta? PMB?Was thinking of doing it all in metal but that's a lot of work. Thanks, -Scott

Ben/MB911 makes steel flared ends for the rear valance and the rockers. If he is out of the rocker additions, I have an extra set.

I have rear rocker flares cheap. Side rockers I currently don’t make. Unfortunately no margin on them

I'm using Ben's flared ends on the rockers which came out nice with some work and the front valence from AIR which is not very good. The part just didn't fit well which seems to be the norm for today's fiberglass parts but I'm making it work with some effort.

Getty design makes the best front and rear valances and rocker panels.



these days it is impossibly hard to get a good fiberglass man. We have SUPERB molds sitting here in our warehouse buy our fiberglass man retired. Hence we are dependent on the guys who have made them for years, AIR, GT Racing, and Getty Design

Hey Shivers, I love the custom rear valance! Swear to G..goodness I've been planning the same and would be incorporating a venting section from an old vw. I did something very similar (but not as nice as yours) at the front end of my '71 Volvo P1800 a few years ago. I stole that idea from a nicely modded Mercedes gullwing. Anyway good job - I'd love to see it all painted up - got a build thread?

Looks good. If there is enough interest I will consider another run of rocker flares.
