Has anyone had any experience with Glassworks Bedsides for Blazers?
If you have any backissues of Four Wheeler, there was a paint and body issue a couple years back. They used those on a k5 front fenders too, and then did a quick respray. Looked nice, and gave room for big tires without much lift. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
Does anyone know how they hold up to usual road conditions? How about installation? Do you cut away the old sheetmetal?
I'm not certain but I believe you just grind all the outer fender spot welds. You retain the factory inner fender and bolt the new fiberglass one in place of the old metal. Samething on the front.
PM a guy named Michael over on RDC. He had them on a Blazer that he ended up selling. You might PM him here, but he let his membership expire and I haven't seen him much here since he sold the truck.
His web site is still up.
Thanks, I'm trying to get some input on the "fit and finish" of these bedsides. Wondering how well everything lines up and how well the tail lights fit. I'll try to reach him.
im prety sure the tail light housing is the same as it was you dont end up cutting that much metal off the bedsides. i think its like four inches in form each side is cut then the bedside goes in and covers it. i saw a picture of it somewhere in the internet.
These bedsides are a complete repalcement for the steel bedsides, including the tail light area. There are other manufactures that make a surface mounted panel that does not require the complete removal of the factory bedside.
