Prerunner-Rangers Fender Restoration and Paint!!!! FINALLY!

Sup guys,

Haven't posted in awhile, been busy as hell. Anyway, for XMAS I'm finally going to paint my damn fenders. But there's a lot of cracks and **** in the way that need to get fixed first. Working on getting the required crap to fill in the cracks and then going to get a sander and go at it. And yes I'm doing the fronts too, but I had to take off my rears for now because the support mounts snapped off.

Fenders off:

I'll keep you guys updated on my progress. Sorry for ****ty cell pics, but I'll get a better camera by the time it's done. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed as this is my first attempt at doing this ever, and I'm kinda lost. Also I'm driving around like this cus I still gotta get to work :P Hopefully the popo don't bother me.

Wish me luck!

You can see on the second picture the fat crack I have on the rear right fender under the light. I tried to patch it up in the past but couldn't sand it too good cus the bumper was in the way.

They are all fiberglass.

UPDATE:
Spent the weekend sanding down both front and rear fenders till they were soft as a baby's butt. Used 220 first then 320 Wet on the jitterbug. I got a few cell pics but didn't get anything else. Fenders are currently getting repaired and getting the final prep before paint.
