Fiberglass bedsides mounted (Pics)

I picked up some glassworks 4.5 bedsides with a gas pod for $200 that were mounted on a truck with a full bedcage (so they had mounting holes on the sides of them) and they were black and green. I used some bondo to fill the holes and i sanded them down and painted them white. Then me and Shaklakan spent almost 10 hours mounting them and the reason it took so long was because this was our 2nd time mounting them and we just wanted to make sure we were doing it right. The tailights dont fit exactly the way i want them to but theyll work for now. Enjoy.

Transporting them to Shaklakan's house

Question... if you painted the fenders white... why didn't you paint them tan to match the truck?

because the "light prarie tan metallic" color is almost $125 a quart, and i had to use 1 quart of primer, and 2 quarts of color just to get rid of all the green and black. And i just bought paint at my work for $20 a quart.

Lol piece. He told me something like that a while ago too.

And im not going for that "white fender look" but i dont have the money/time/skill to completely paint my truck white by myself. and white fenders looks better than the green and black color they were.
