Fiberglass rear fenders ?

Time is coming to start on the bed for my 56 PU. Old fenders are not worth fixing, I am leaning toward fiberglass rear fenders. One reason is that Be-Bops Glassworks has 3" wider than stock fenders. Anyone using fiberglass? What's the best place to get them, quality first.

Not that many people making fiberglass fenders for that truck, Bebops is probably just as good as any.

Fairlane Fiberglass has some stuff for your truck. I've bought their glass fenders for my '47 coupe and they're nice parts.

Just a word to the wise here. Glass fenders NEVER fit perfectly and I don't care who makes them. I used glass rear fenders on my 41 Chevy and glass front fenders on my 53 Chevy PU and none of them fit quite right. You can get them to fit nicely but it will take some fiddling.
