Unhappy

Can anyone help me I picked up some Fender flares for my 2001 Dodge ram from the dealer
I order these right out of the catalog from
dodge.they look nice except they dont fit
tight against the body there is gaps the two
sided tape dose not hold the fiberglass to
the body,the dealer has tryed to put these on
twice with the same results,we are now waiting for answer from chrysler,has anyone
had this problem if so how can I make these
flares fit so they look like part of the body
any help would be appreciated,or if there is
a another flare that would work better than what I have thank you rcher3

I assume your putting these on yourself? If so, heres a few tips. Its very important to clean the body with alcohol to remove any wax, sealer etc. Get the flares warm by laying in the sun(if you can even see it!!) or near a heater. This gets them more flexible. Also have the body warm. I've installed several sets & have no problems with fit. Hope this helps

The dealer installed these so I dont know if they cleaned it properly,also it is cold here
they put the truck in overnight it was 70 in
the garage I dont know if this was warm enough to do the job,but I do know what you
mean about having the fiberglass warm enough
so it will form to the body ,I may half to
wait for the weather to straighten up thanks
for your help

Bye the way, those are not fiberglass. They are some sort of injected molded flexible plastic, just like a bumper cover on most cars.
