Mike, I am building a 48 Pickup and I am using glass fenders all the way around, the rear ones are 2 inches over stock and came from Superior Glass works in Oregon and the quality looks to be very good. I am not sure how made the front ones, but the quailty is excellent as I have blocked them once and did not have a high of low spot on either fender. I got both sets through heartland rod shop in Topeka Kansas. When I got them they ran about 250 each and new steel was from 450 and up each.

I know how that is, I have been working on the 48 for at least 3 years and am finally starting to see daylight (of course I do not work on it every day) I just primed the front end and now need to block out the cab and bed. It has been a fun project, it is the first anything that I have ever chopped. with a little luck It will be on the road by Labor day.

Well mine won't see labor day from outside of the garage but maybe Dayton's Turkey Run 2004..i looked up Superior on the web and their fenders have only gone up to $275.00 each..much better than $550.00..are the fenders a "street weight" rather than a "race weight" and how did they line up with everything else..mostly the front that i'm worried about..the backs should be easy..i'm working on the cab getting it ready for paint..front end is next..i've got to run out of things to do soon..Mike

Re: Fairlane prices

The correct price for Fairlane fenders is $550.00 per pair not each. All Fairlane parts carry a 3 year warranty against failure. Hope this clears this mis understanding of prices.

You can also try US Body Parts. Lots of 'glass parts, even one-piece glass front ends....very nice. I plan to use them for my 56 chevy truck. Good luck!

You might try BeBops in Tenn. I'm not sure they make your particular fender, but they put a lot of glass in the ones I have seen and they are very well finished. I block sanded mine, primed, finish sanded and painted black. Can't find a flaw I could lay on the fender quality!!!
