Maybe not, if you use fiberglass to fill it in. I mean they are fiberglass vs metal.

By feel, I'd say the FG fender and original fenders way about the same weight as is and filling in the vents wont help much with lightness for sure.

The real idea behind these FG fenders is to replace my rusted metal fenders with something that wont rust again in a few years. My DS side fender doesn't have any visible rust on it right now so that one may stay on the car for a while, but the PS fender that I'm replacing now has some really bad rust on the rocker panel area and some other major paint chips.

Makes sense to me know!Now you need to find some triangle sidemarkers and get them glassed in!

I keep flipping back and forth on whether I want triangles or not. If a set comes up for sale for less than $50, I'll probably go for them, but if not, I'll probably keep the fenders clean. We will see.

Doood every Foci needs the triangle sidemarkers. One of my sets came off eBay.uk for $15 shipped

Edit: also look up norcalfocus01 on FJ. He has triangles that are designed for U.S. fenders. For him, instead of cutting the hole, all he had to do was drill a smaller hole

Got one headlight finished yesterday. Basically, I swapped the housing and added some led lighting inside. I get some more internal pictures of the led's when I do the other headlight but it might not happen till next week depending on how much snow we get in the next couple day.

The new housing. It started out as chrome when I got them from Daniel but I sprayed them with Black Chrome. I'm slightly disappointed with the spray, it blotched and clumped on the chrome slightly and it's less chrome than I hoped, but it turned into more of a gunmetal color which I'm really loving right now.



I also but in a strip of white led's along the bottom of the housings, I have them on a switch powered when the key is on run so I can use them as day time running light if desired.




And because I could, I added some blue behind the housing. I don't plan on running these much right now but if I ever go with under glow, I really want the headlight to be lit blue too.

Thanks.

I'll get more pictures when I do the other headlight. It will be too hard to try and explain.
