Question Icelandic Fender Flares????

Does anybody know where I might be able to buy a set of "Icelandic Fender Flares" I've seen some pictures of them and they look bad as hell, I've spent days trying to find somewhere that sells them just to come up completely empty handed. I'd like to find a set like the ones pictured below. Any help is greatly appreciated.



There is a FSB sticker on the fender of this beast, so hopefully the owner or somebody who knows the owner can help me.

That's Oscar's truck. I don't know where he got those, but they are not stock anyway. He extended them at least once using fiberglass and resin/epoxy, there is a thread here somewhere with pics of the work while he was doing it.

Following is from ZENSEEKER (Alex), in his Big Bronco FAQ Site;
"There are several fiberglass shops in Iceland that make boats, Jacuzzis and cut-out fender flares. Artic Trucks in Iceland are know for their large fender flares and wheel well openings and have custom flares for all kinds of vehicles. Also take a look at these sites for some ideas."

Thanks Oscar, I may need some help because I can't read the website. I know you modified yours so they won't be exactly the same but I would like to get a set like you had before you made them bigger. How much did they cost? I hate to seem like I'm copying you or anything but your truck is gorgeous, its definately got the look I'm going for. I don't think I need to go quite that big, I don't really have to worry about getting through 3 or 4 feet of snow down here in North Carolina but I love to have a set of 40's with plenty of room to flex.

you have to e-mail them they are not listed on the website and about the price I can check that out but as they come from them they are molded after 1980-1986 ford trucks on the rear its fine but up fron you have to do some mods to fit them on
