Hey everyone, I have an EB GT kit on my falcon. It's fiberglass, and it's a tad distorted. We used sikaflex to stick the flairs to the car but as they were a bit distorted there were gaps. We ran a bead of sikaflex along that and smoothed it out to tidy it up and hide the gaps. It was white sikaflex and it's attracted dirt and you can't clean it.


Would there be a product to spray on it that won't interfere with the paint on the guards and the body? Or would a simple clean, paint the line and spray with clear so overspray doesn't matter type thing be easier?

I want to clean it up for when I get driving it again.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for that, man. So did you sikaflex your side flares on and then paint the line of sikaflex red? Looks good man. Your rear bar fits better than mine.

Pretty funny, both of us have EA monts with the EB GT kit and the same rims, although mine are 17's with 40 series tires.

Thanks for the reply!
