Glad you got them Louie. You deserved 'em. I hope your good at Photoshop, to make your hood and quarter panels good.:2thumbsup:
Thanks Mr. B. :2thumbsup:

The back of that van looks like a good place for Mr.B to set up shop offering wayward kids some candy. The cage and hose really set the stage. :rofl:
Indeed...

I have always been a fan of the spyder logo. Those fenders look sweet, but I still think they woulda looked better on my jeep. Lol

Lou I think you'll be ok without something behind them, but it might be cool to put green behind them or something else. Just my two cents.
I'll take that into consideration. When are you going to update your thread BTW?

I need to get started back on the jeep but its still in royston. Im going to document the Dana 30 build and create a separate thread for it. I'm helping Wayne put a body lift on my sisters jeep this morning. May get him to document it as well.

Did you get them powder coated and put back on yet?
Not yet. I kept asking the guys in the shop if he stopped by and they said no. I'm hoping to get them next week. I'll definitely be asking about them.

+1 to the Fox Bros BBQ sticker. I used to live in Decatur, just a couple miles from there. Was tasty! Nice looking fenders btw, still trying to decide how I want to tackle mine. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Fox Brothers is awesome. You can actually feel your heart slowing down from the greasy goodness. :rofl: Those fried pickles were off the chain.

I can't wait to see the final product as well. I haven't been able to catch the sandblast guy. He's either been to work really early or after 5. He may be avoiding me.

I'm getting closer. I got my drivers side fender on. I need to get some satin black paint and paint the fender wells. It will give it a better look. I would have started the other side but the weather was getting nasty and I wanted to paint the other side without the fender on.





I still need to figure out what I'm going to do for the side inserts. I haven't quite decided yet. I figure once I get the fenders on I can see what I like.



I must say, I think these things look pretty sharp. All the included hardware was nice.

Man, I really like the look of those vs. the normal tube fenders.

Might have to finally pony up some money and buy something instead of making it.
I know you will not be disappointed by them.

Getting closer. I put some paint on the inner fender.





I waited a day and just put the other fender on this evening. I waited until the sun went down but the humidity was killer as always. My boxer Georgia was just as excited as me. I also found another use for the winch cable.





The powdercoat guy did a good job.



I will take some final pics tomorrow. It was too dark to take some this evening.

looks real good Lou.

i love your use for the winch, ive never thought of that.

and the powder coat guy better have done a good job for as long as he had them :D
Thanks Chris.

Yeah, he actually had to sandblast them and then have them powdercoated. The powdercoat guy charged him $62.00 for both which is how much he charged me. I just wrote him a check for $70.00 and said thanks. I don't know if that's a good price or not but it seemed fair based on the cost of the fenders. :D

Though I was getting pretty antsy about getting them back.
