Hey guys, I also put a set of Norm's fenders on one my Sky's and I never got a chance to post some pics or thank Norm.

First off, Thanks Norm! The fenders look awesome, my body shop always owes me favors so they painted them for me. (On a side note, the biggest reason panels don't match up color wise on these cars is they aren't painted at the same time, or probably even at the same place.) It was nice that they didn't have to spend any time working on them before painting, just the usual light scuffing before and sanding after primer.

I painted the screens Norm supplied silver since the black wouldn't have shown up much at all on a black car. I wasn't super happy with the mesh of the screen, or the silver paint so I pulled them back off and tried another type of screen. What I ended up using was a coarser mesh made out of aluminum so I didn't have to paint it, I actually polished it. I like the look better with the second set of screens in it. With the way the screen is placed, you can't see much of anything behind it. (somebody was worrying about their meth tank showing?)

There's some other pics of the car with the fenders on it on one of my photobucket sites, here's the link...

Thanks again Norm. I would definitely recommend his fenders as a nice upgrade to (most likely) cracked and broken stockers. Oh, btw, they ARE lighter than stock, I don't remember the exact numbers but it was significant, like a little more than half the weight? I'm thinking it was pounds, not ounces difference. Not a big deal obviously but it's nice doing a mod that doesn't ADD weight at least.

I'm sure you could make LEDs work with these but probably not in the same way as the stock fender with a stock insert in it. @normsf might know.

Too much to list here. See my Garage for details.

I love the looks of them, but I have more pressing (mechanical) needs to tend to. I am still considering these after I get the mech stuff done.
