They do look metallic, and like they have rivets

Not ridiculous at all. It's just that the question (and answer) came up a few times in the thread. It was good for a chuckle.

If you drive off road, you would never second guess the plastic. That stuff is very hard to kill. I wish all the body panels where made of it.

So true. Especially the fender skins.

I certainly do, still not a fan of plastic body panels on a car.

I like the plastic ones because there easy to trim for larger tires

Imlooking for a set as well and would like the most pliable ones i can find.

there were two types of OEM flares or eybrows or spats whatever you want to call them. The black ones which are flexible, and hard abs plastic ones meant to be painted body color to match which were not. These are both OE parts and both have been available on new Land rovers since 1983. The hard plastic abs are not aftermarket. There are aftermarket oversize flares available in both soft/flexi and hard abs plastic.

So if I plan to paint them I should get the ABS ones? How do I know which ones I currently have? They are matte and somewhat flexible. The parts manual only shows one set of part numbers.
