Custom body panels

Has anyone done anything to customize the body panels on their rig? I'm waiting on a custom hood (like the '68 Shelby GT-500) for my truck, and was considering creating some fiberglass "wide body" panels for it as well...

The hood should be here by the end of next month, and once I get it fitted and installed, I'd like to get started when I have the time.

Any comments or concerns would be appreciated. Thanks

I've thought about it.
I want to put a cowl hood on mine, and looking at putting some fender vents from a '08-'10 F350 onto my truck in place of the stock emblems.

There's a company that makes wide fiberglass fenders and bed sides for the '87-97 F-series trucks that I saw before. Not cheap.

I'm not talking about fender flares or stock looking fenders, I'm talking custom designed stuff like you'd see in a car kit for a Mustang or whatever...I'm talking radical one of a kind stuff!

Oh, I was talking about the big bulge fenders and bed-sides like the baja trucks...

Depends on what your ultimate plan is for it. Lowered? Show truck? What is it's purpose going to be?

I'm going for an original, one of a kind, style. Maybe lifted a bit...
