Fiberwerx quality?

I'm looking to get front fenders from Fiberwerx and read mixed reviews on the quality of their glass. Since I'm in Canada ordering them would mean I might as well keep them than lose money on shipping them back.

They're good. Autofab is better but costs double. I know a few people their glass. I'm only about 5 minutes from their shop. Only thing I don't like is their smallest bulge is 4.5" I'd really like a 3".

Thanks. I'm just waiting for a reply for shipping costs to Sumas and then have my wife pick them up over the border (eh I'm not allowed in the US, no passport). If I were to buy them and paid you some $$ could you check out the fenders before they shipped them out?

Its my understanding that quality was poor a few years ago. They stepped up there game from and are making good quality products. If you are a member of gofastbroncos talk to travisfab he works for fiberwerx. He might also be a member here as well.

It's not custom if you bought it from a catalog!

is it true that you have to build additional bracing behind it to mount it or can you just pull the old steel and bolt on the fiberglass one??

Some skin the factory fenders and bolt on the glass. I just ran a bar from the cowl to the core support and it has held up well.

Did you cut out all the back of the old fenders? How did you mount these? Im about ready to install mine, just want some direction. First set and I would hate to mess them up.

I was thinking about the fiberwerx fenders. But i didn't know it involved so much fab work.

Honestly its not alot of fab work. Here is my simple brace, skinning the factory fenders is easiest.

I was wondering the same thing. The fiberwerX website says the following about installing the front fenders:

"80-96 F150ís/Broncos are slightly different than all other installs. For these trucks you will need to split the outer fender from the inner fender. To do this you will need to drill out all of the spot welds around the perimeter of the fenders. Our fenders will then install on to the inner fender using your hardware."

They go on to say to just bolt the combined inner fender and glass.

It seems everyone on here opts to fabricate some sort of support. Can it be done like fiberwerX says or will it not be sturdy enough? Welding is beyond my skill set and I am trying to figure out if I could do this myself.

A friend of mine had a hell of a time getting Fiberwerx 03 Ram Fenders to fit good. But he's not exactly the best installer, and I wouldn't judge their quality by his job. And Bronco fenders mount a little differently.

I'll be hanging McNeil 6" glass fenders and bedsides soon, and I'll give honest feedback. We're picking them up while at KOH.
We're also going to video the process.

yes skinning is just fine. I did it to mine while I had the glass fenders on. (I had Perry's Fab&Fiber stuff for 3 years). Removed only to go back to stock sheet metal.
I think I might have a photo in Supermotors....if it works.
