? about fiberglass fender's.

I've got a 76 GMC C10 style short bed pickup, that did weigh around 3,900 lbs when it had an inline-6, and a saginaw 3 speed tranny in it. I'm just wonderring if anybody know's about how much of a reduction in weight it would be if i were to install a set of fiberglass front fender's, and hood on my truck, like the one's that JC Whitney sail in there catalog. I know that the fiberglass fender's do crack in places whare they bolt on, but my truck will have the polly bushing's under the cab and rad suport. (OOP's) I forgot to mention that im installing a 350 sbc in front of that saginaw 3 speed. (Please Advise)

First off, I would not by anything from JC Whitney. I would suspect their fenders are of questionable quality at best.

The front fenders will weigh in the neighborhood of 30 to 50lbs each, the hood about the same.
