    Remains to be seen I bought the tires and wheels the rest came along
    I am sure it would work! Warm temperature both surfaces clean!!

    Most of my jobs I just used clear Silicone Caulk.

    Just get a small section off your truck and match it up to a cross-section of what you are looking at...

    Shoot, I might have a set of fender flare seals. Let me check.

    Update as promised, took a bit longer than expected. Anyways, the edge trim I ordered worked pretty well on the front flares. The rear flares seem to have a different edge, with less for the trim to grab on to. Also they have more and sharper bends to them, so, while I got the right side to sort of fit, I'm going to bite the bullet and see if I can fit the OEM replacement for the left side. I think getting the trim to seat properly around the gas filler door just wont work.

    I did end up getting the OEM trim for the left rear flare off of eBay. I'm quite sure the aftermarket stuff I used on the other fenders would have been impossible to make fit around the filler door. I'm quite pleased with the way the painted flares and trim turned out. :)

    Trying to get rid of rust!
    Just wanted to say when I replaced the old rotted out red bed on my truck I kept the red fender flares and put them on the new to me silver bed because it didn’t come with fender flares. I re-used the OEM fender flare seals and glued them on with 3M black weatherstripping adhesive which I got from Walmart. It was cheap and worked very well. Bit of a pain to work with since it’s stringy but as long as you’re careful and everything is clean it does a great job.

    I just replaced my fender flare seals with OEM and my gaps from fender to body got worse... I used new clips on fender too... any idea if this aftermarket seal would work?
