Dam, sorry to see it didn't fit right. But eh, as you said, when you get it corrected, now you will know when you sell em, that they will be a nice and tight fit for whoever you sell em to, and they will be happy.

Put me on the list for a pair or two when you do start selling them.

Yeah that does suck all the way round. Looking forward to seeing the results from your new game plan.

I'm hoping the fenders are all that's messed up. what really gets me is there was evidence of gel coat prior to me using the molds, meaning that someone else has produced parts from them.....makes me wonder if the seller was aware of the defects and purposely didn't make note of them when we struck the deal. Kinda wish I had tried to make these sooner but I didn't have the time and resources....now it's far to late to contact the seller and bitch about the defect.

one way or another I'll make it work, I'm just upset I did not get what I was lead to thought I was getting.

fiberglast.com has some decent how-to video's, but it's definitely not as easy as they make it look....

Checko came by today and gave me a hand with the fenders..... cut up the stock ones and the fiberglass ones and used pieces of each one to get a good-fitting fender. gameplan is to make these fit and look right, then mold them, and make complete fiberglass fenders out of the mold so I don't have to worry about the seam cracking from vibration or expansion/contraction.















driver's side is epoxied together and pop-riveted, ran out of epoxy so the passenger side is just held in alignment temporarily with self tapping screws
