Seller says they have a couple cracks and I kinda doubt them being the mythical Bush Wacker flares from way back when. I can't decide if they look period correct, something close from 90s or maybe spec'd for a van. They look any kind of familiar to any body??

Interesting roof rack design making use of the front and rear gutters. I've never seen that done before.

those are the Bushwackers....I had a NIB pair (don't remember if it was front or rear) that I sold to a guy on here a few years back. I originally purchased them at least a decade ago on ebay and held onto them looking to complete the set and never had luck.

I just went thru my old messages and emails...I bought them in 2006 on ebay from a guy in Eugene Oregon, then sold them to a guy in New Jersey (who's a member here)

For the price this guy is asking, I'm grabbing them. If as nice as they look, goin on the RC. If not, on the plow truck. Having been extinct for 2-3 decades I'm curious about WIW.
Me too a pretty penny maybe? I like them. Look well fitted on these rigs, unlike most that you see people do.

So somebody should make a template of those and repop em
I'll need to hop over to the 3d printing thread. If legit BWs, explains why ya can't find em - thin-ish molded plastic kinda like current day window vent shades.

Chicken wire makes an excellent mold for fiberglass. You can also make ABS repops by using a sheet of plastic in a heated vacuum chamber.


I knew a guy who used to vacuum form lexan with a hair dryer and shop vac.
