    you can used some shit from SEM seam sealer, its like the same shit they use on factory vehicles to mold in the crease lines, he molded his glassed kit on and its held up for like 3 years now....

    Actually it can be molded, but it has to be done the right way....

    You have to make sure that it is firmly attached to the truck. Double sided tape, rivets and seam sealer won't do it...

    The best way that I have found is to grind the inside of the effects, and the body panel (down to bare metal). Drill a couple of small holes, and mix up a good helping of fiberstrand (the long hair version) and put the panels in place. Once it hardens, then it will be very strong. You want to make sure the panels are in the right spot, because once it hardens, that's it (and don't mix it too hot, you want time to work it on...

    To fill in the gaps, use short strand fiberstrand, and then finish off with filler...

    the seam sealer stuff that my bro used is sandable, can be primed, and painted, plus it flexible. So that if sumone gets outta ya truck and bumps it with their foot or if ya ride low and tap em on the ground they wont just bust off or crack, it will just flex and if it is hit hard enough it will just put sum pressure cracks in it, easy ta fix then.....but ya know thats just one guys way of doin stuff....
