My plan is to have Ripley repainted [same color] this fall [undercoated as soon as I’m able to get it done]. Half cab and tonneau will match the body. My question is about the pocket flares that I want to install. What would be best, remove the oem flares along with any or all nutserts that need drilling out and have the body painted under the flares then install the new flares or remove and install the new flares and possibly have them painted as well? As far as I know there’s no obvious fender damage but the several nutserts that I’ve tried to unscrew have failed to hold. Any repainting ideas? What have you guys done?
