So i got my front bumper on today and it really brings up the look of the front of my truck. But now my slave cylinder is deciding to go out i believe. It keeps sucking brake fluid from the clutch reservoir and there is no external leak so when i pull the inspection cover off tomorrow i believe im gonna get a load of brake fluid in my face. Dammit. the one thing i decided not to replace while i was in there. Pics up tomorrow of the front bumper and new seat since the bracket is coming in tomorrow.

So... I went through hell and back today to get my rear fenders. But i did end up getting them then getting stuck in traffic for four hours on the 215 freeway which was closed down. Then it snowed all over my truck. So here are some pics of the fenders and my truck after the snow. Im gonna start making measurements and mapping things out tomorrow if weather permits to start the "hanging" of the fenders.
The fenders:

Now the snow.

Well i decided to go ahead and get my fenders ready for saturday which is when im hanging them. But anyways i went over to my buddies house and he showed me how to work with fiberglass because my fenders i got had some cracks in them but anywho we had a blast doing it because i had never worked with fiberglass before. Here are some of the pics don't mind the splatter that corner we did is damn tough now.

Looks good bro. Fiberglass is quite different to work with. Good luck hanging all the panels, I look forward to the pics. I may have missed this earlier in the thread, but are the rear fiberglass panels flared like the front?

Yah the rear fiberglass is flared 5.5 inches and have a rise of 4 inches but its raining and i won't be able to get out there and do it so maybe when my buddy Dale has some time we will be able to get out there. I might just end up doing it on wednesday or monday im not to sure yet. We will see but hey no-one ever said it goes the way you want it too.

So today was the day. We hung one fender. It was hell im not really looking forward to doing the next one because im really hurting right now but oh well i have started and commited to it i have to finish it. I know its gonna look *****en but damn i really don't like it when it doesn't fit right, we had to do alot of grinding and removal of more fender. But in the end we came up with this! It turned out pretty decent.
Beginning before removal.
