Poison Spyder Rear Flare Fit Issue

A fellow club member asked me to help him install a new set of Poison Spyder aluminum flares. When we set the rears up into position we discovered a wide gap, maybe 3/8", at the arch at the front of the wheelhouse. Same on both sides. It's very doubtful this will close up much, if at all, when the flares are tightened down, and over torquing will spin the rivnuts. Anyone else with the PSC flares encounter this issue?

Well, he paid for a lot more than the Smittys. He contacted Poison Spyder and essentially got blown off. He bought them in bare aluminum and has paid for them to be powder coated, so he can't return. Sucks what he's got on his hands, I expected a lot more from Poison Spyder. My Nemesis flares fit perfectly.

yeah, the Nemesis Industries wares will spoil you in the fitment.

It's tough to see if it is the same gap as is visible in this generic PS rear fender image versus yours, but there is an obvious gap,even in generic catalog images of the PS rear flares:

That’s not the gap he’s having issue with. The gap is between the flat surface of the body where the old flare attached and the mounting plate for the Poison Spyder flare. It’s flush from the rear around to the forward mounting surface, then there’s a big gap, then it’s flush at the bottom front. It’s like their template is bent, but both rears are roughly the same.

BTW, sorry for the goofy "Â" character. The Forum adds that when I respond from my iPhone.

I can’t contribute anything of value concerning the PS fenders, sorry.

I do feel compelled to say this however. I just installed some MetalCloak “hard line” aluminum fenders. “Fit” was almost perfect.

I had mine painted at a body shop to match my rig, the finish wasn’t perfect and could be touched up with a little more prep but I told the guy to just do a good paint job.

I’m happy with them.

Yes, I did Nemesis Odyssey flares and would say the fit was perfect. There's nothing tricky about that rear fender seating surface, seems to me it was relatively flat all around. He contacted Poison Spyder again and they convinced him to try installing them. We'll have to see.

PSC fender...only issue is if I wanted to switch brands. I doubt the template for the mounting holes are the same between brands.
No idea why the pic loaded sideways.
