Default 7xx/9xx fender flares

Anyone here ever ordered fender flares from this place?

https://clinchedflares.com/product-c...ders/eurolook/

They're like $640 USD for a set of 4. I have absolutely NO skills in fabing bodywork so these looked like a good alternative if I want to install a set of 10 inch wheels.

You can install 10” wide wheels in the back of a Volvo 7/9 with solid axle. Et 25 I fit a 275/40/17. If you really want a wide body there is a company that makes Volvo widebody panels front and rear for 940/960 sedan.

Nice but from Russia? And I sometimes doubt that the items shown in the pictures are the actual stuff that you get.

Comes out to about $1400 CAD + shipping and you still have to have these painted and cut out the original rear fenders.
