Ok..I just ordered my stepshavers and roll pan for my 2k ZQ8 Noma..my question is when I get this how can I mold all 3 pieces together?..The only way that came to mind was..test fit the 3 pieces get them how I want them on the truck(unpainted still) then lay glass over the gap between the shavers and the pan till it's strong..then remove the whole deal sand it down bondo sand sand..sand..then paint and put it back on..this is a fiberglass set of stepshavers btw so I obviously can't weld it..does this sound right? or waaaay out in right field? any other ideas and comments would be GREATLY appreciated..thanks guys:burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout:

do it all when its on your truck, slap that sumbitch on there, glass it, bondo, primer and you're set, no need for paint...but definitely do the work while its on there so you know it'll fit

I can understand getting them cause they are cheaper.... im just saying if your intensions was to mold them in, then metal would have been the way to go.. i just wouldnt trust body filler, with the way the bed flexes and all
Thats why I'm thinking 'glass over bondo

and just whats so bad about primer? just glass that shit already, then you can take it off and get it painted. you shouldn't need to use very much body filler.
