I have ordered a full set of Ace fender flares and inner fenders and I am looking for recommendations for an installation shop, preferably near Ashburn Va that won't charge an arm and a leg. I called one shop and they quoted $800+/-
TIA

the flares themselves aren't difficult to try yourself. Flares are usually one of the easier things to do. There aren't a lot of shops that are decently priced near ashburn unfourtinatly. But hit up John at YesterYear Auto Repair and see what John says.

If you're talking about installing nutserts, here's the tool I use routinely.  It's inexpensive, well made, and makes the job effortless!

Definitely get the riv nut tool. The one Runner posted or the smittybuilt tool sold by Qtec. I recently did half  an install without one and it sucked. Had the smittybuilt tool for the second half and it was night n day better.
