I got to be honest I messed up on this, I measured fore and aft for fit but didn't think about how wide the trailer is. The Admiral's car (wife's) MUST be garaged. Even with the boat tucked tight against the wall both on the stern and side, she can't open her doors. I suggested she crawls through the window... needless to say the boat will remain bundled up under the lean-too and I wont be doing the swing away.

Paint your fenders, save yourself a large headache. Look at my albums of my 92 trailer restore. Or hydrodip like I did my 197 trailer fenders.

I was thinking about just painting them. Yours look great! I wouldn't even need to two-tone them, do you have to use any special paint to spray fiberglass?
