    I'll post up more pics tomorrow !!!

    Started with these http://www.princessauto.com/componen...ct/2080078.jpg

    Sliced them in half and welded some 2x2 angle on as tabs and a 16" strip along the top, drilled a couple of holes and screwed them straight on to the body, but will change them up a bit in the spring when it get warmer.

    They are now in High Solids Primer, but will be painted tomorrow night.

    Will post more pics after they are painted

    When you say sliced in half, does that mean you did both sides with 1 fender?

    Did the same for my fronts last year but added rubber flaps to the back to stop spray after this pic. Cheap and fairly easy.

    Yeh i am going to trim as much out as possible and finish them up properly when we get some warmer weather to damn cold to do any of that stuff now when you don't have a garage to work in and it's a daily Driver so i just wanted to try and keep the road crap off the windows.

    Yeh i picked them up on sale last spring and didn't have the time this past summer to get them on and with all the snow and slush the Pro Comp Xtreme Muds were just caking the windows with road grime to the point i couldn't see out my windows, that i had to open them to see if any other cars were coming.
