Got pics...tell me what u think; remember, he was sanding it down and prepping for paint then he found out it wouldnt fit his ranger when he did a test fit:






i dont know why it seems all patchy with different colors all over like that? anyone know???

looks like its in good shape, i just dont know why when its sanded it has different colored areas like that? is that normal??
what comes to my mind is that its been patched, or bondo or something all over in different spots?????
but its fiberglass so its all unusual to me....

should i take it?
he wants $200, do i drive the 3 hours to get it, maybe offer him $150?

i have a guy at work that paints on the side, has his own shop, and can have him paint it to match my truck probably this spring for like $200.

Probably just small dents

Change that large dents those are large sections of bondo but i wouldn't really be too concerned

i could see that, or small chips in the fiberglass he had to bondo over, but my fear and worry is, how well does bondo cure to fiberglass ? im no auto body expert....
i mean it looks all good, and will probably be awesome once painted.... i just wanted to get some more opinions on it..

Get it! I'm sure if he sanded it down good enough it should be fine!

yes but even when bondoing a part, a small dent is covered up by a wide area of bondo spreading and sanding down, right??
