    Fiberglass wheel openings

    Anyone running any fiberglass wheel openings?

    Im needing to open up the rear wheel opening on my Chevelle a little bit so i picked up some VFN fiberglass wheel openings.

    Going from about a 33" opening to a 37" opening.

    Any tips or pointers on getting these bad boys attached to the sheet metal is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Mine have been stretched in the middle and they always crack. I have thought about trying the fiberglass ones but haven't yet. I saw a thing on another forum that showed the best way to do it was in some sort of a staggered cut, not just a notch...can't remember the particulars. I think it was on YB but can't recall.

    let us know how those work because mine are cracked again.
