Front fiberglass fender....

Getting the Total Chaos Fabrication long travel kit meant that I had to get some wider fiberglass. Since there are no fiberglass available for the 2003 Toyota 4runner, I had to go with the next closest fiberglass available. The Glassworks Unlimited 2005+ Toyota Tacoma Front Fiberglass was used as the base design and was modified to fit the 4runner lines. This fiberglass is one of a kind and only one available at the current time (January 2006).

Rear fiberglass quarterpanel...

When I committed myself in building the rear bumper I also had to commit myself in building a custom rear quarterpanel. Since I've never worked with any automotive body parts, this was a great learning experience. I started with some free surfboard foam that I acquired at a local surf shop. Molding the foam was easy as all I did was sand down until the shape I desired fit the profile of the rear panel. Once the panel was completed, I started coating the foam with fiberglass. Keep in mind that I've never worked with fiberglass before so it was such a pain in the rear. This project took me nearly 2 months to finish as it proved to be more difficult than originally estimated. After a grueling 2 months, the completed fiberglass looked rather professional. I give props to the body shop to clean the edges and smooth out the finish for the paint.

Here's the completed quarter panel. The panel also includes the flare to compliment the stock fender flare. The color is two tone as well to match the stock look and feel.
