Any insight on sources for fenders or bedsides? (92 pickup, ext. cab 4x4)

I'm considering fiberglass or steel for fenders (the latter being cheaper). Fiberglass for the bedsides.

Read a few forums and toyotafiberglass out of Penticton seems to have a good rep. Emailed them for availability on fenders and bedsides and they are booking for January 2009! (maybe it's time to ramp up production a little bit!?)

I can order canuck industries bedsides through tiger automotive. Price is reasonable, but not sure about quality. I suppose bedsides don't need to fit as well as the fenders, though, as there are fewer lines to match up to.

So will likely go with canuck industries and maybe find some steel fenders (althought he shipping is a killer!). Local sources would be nice.

PM Slacker on this forum. He works for Toyota Fiberglass.
I think they can also get metal panels as well.

there are no local suppliers for the pieces your looking for ..

I work for toyotafiberglass.com .. and all I can tell you is Cross Canada has been banging down our doors to sell our product .

Cross Canada's bedsides are currently supplied by Canuck , and they say they just "cringe" every time they sell a set . there sides are "chopped" (sprayed) with a General purpose resin , not real strong , and dont fit great .. our quality , materials and proceedures superseed any other manufacture , We , exclusivly use , ISO resin , which is impervious to heat or cold , with vertually ZERO shrinkage , this is why were so busy ..... a very QUALITY product .


but that being said .. WE ARE NOT WALMART , and unfortunatly , you might have to wait for quality ..

sorry for the inconveniance .
