Nice! I want glass but was planning on doing it later. I had an incident that caused my driver side fender to get messed up so I figure just get the glass now. I don't want too much rise or flare and the fiberwerx seem to have less. I'll definitely get pictures up ASAP.

Accoridng to the website Fiberwerx has 4.5" bulge, while glassworks has 4" flare 2" rise. I like how the fiberwerx flow with the vehicle though. I dunno I'm still debating. There are people running glassworks now, so that's why I'm thinking of going with Fiberwerx.

IMO theres too many people running glass and i like the bigger bulge and the TT bedsides, those are the best part! glass is meh...average

Here is my inner fender made out of my mudflaps lol. My concern is water getting on the filter more than anything. Ive also looked and a well placed rock off my tire going towards the headlights would do some damage to the backside of the light/plug too. I know riveting it in may have been a little much but I have the gun its fun so what the hell

I have run a couple small body shops while being a paint and body man. It is rare that you can ever put on a piece of fiberglass that doesn't require a good amount of bodywork to make it fit and look good. Usually you have to trim the shit out of it, add in some places to get the gaps right, and use some filler to get the waves out of them. That's just how it is.

Bump.

Putting fenders on this weekend, very anxious about installation! Driving up to Richmond to pick them up.

With two people, could I realistically get the fenders installed in two days before my trip back home? I'm not so much concerned with the proper fitment and lined up edges as I am physically having them installed.

I had to cancel my order from Glassworks. I tried ten times a day with no response. I called Hannemann glass at 1:30 and had them shipped the same day!
