    Flare kit mounting

    Iíve got a set of factory flares I want to install but donít know what clips to use to fit them.

    I see a wide range on eBay as Iím a bit scared to go to Nissan, I donít want to mortgage the house for $5 worth of plastic clips. Any advice welcome.

    Buy the kits of eBay. Nissan dont sell a kit, these are made up from the sellers who have to buy each clip in multiples from Nissan. Should be around $30ish per flare to do.

    You can go to Nissan and they will show you the exploded diagram for your model and sell you the right ones. They are cheap and easy. They will even print off the exploded diagram for you.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    The other thing to keep in mind is the rubber seal that goes between the body and the flare. If you don't have those, you'll need to source them too.
    I bought a non-genuine clip set and genuine Nissan rubber seal from patrolapart to repair my passenger door flare on the driver's side.
