Your Chevrolet S10 is built to be capable of doing some heavy off-roading. But while you are barreling through rough terrain, rocks, dirt, mud, and other road debris stick to your wheels and are thrown up as your wheels rotate. The Chevrolet S10's fenders keep this debris from hitting the rest of your truck (as well as other people and vehicles). Unfortunately, the fenders are often the first things that are damaged in the event of a collision. A "fender bender" will seriously ruin the look of your Chevrolet S10. Having that dent on your fender serve as a constant reminder of the accident is not an easy thing to endure. The right choice of replacement can soon make it like it never happened.
How can the fenders on a Chevrolet S10 be maintained? Answer: Fenders are often the first part of a Chevrolet S10 to be damaged in a collision--hence the term "fender bender." Minor dents can be removed with a small rubber mallet. Much larger dents may be too difficult to repair and require the fender to be replaced. Scratches can be removed by carefully sanding, buffing, and waxing the affected areas. Because fenders catch all the dirt, water, rocks, mud, dust, and other road debris thrown by the wheels, they will need to be washed regularly. This prevents the muck from accumulating and corroding the fenders. When cleaning the fenders of a Chevrolet S10, it is important not to use any abrasive cleaner material as this will scratch the fenders.
How much would it cost to get new fenders for a Chevrolet S10? Answer: The price for new fenders varies widely depending on the brand, the type, and the quantity of the fenders (could either be sold individually or in sets). Packages can go for as low as $84 to as much as $900 or more.
What benefit can be gained if fiberglass fenders are installed on a Chevrolet S10 instead of steel ones? Answer: The biggest benefit that can be gained by outfitting a Chevrolet S10 with fiberglass fenders instead of steel ones is improved fuel economy due to a significant weight loss. Fiberglass, just like stainless or galvanized primered steel, is strong, durable, and resistant to rust. However, fiberglass is much lighter than steel. A lighter vehicle is much more fuel efficient than a heavier one.
What fender accessories are available for a Chevrolet S10? Answer: Chevrolet S10 fenders are usually accessorized by either adding fender flares or fender trims (or both). Fender flares widen the fenders, adding protection while giving the Chevrolet S10 a more rugged look. Fender trims are decorative accessories that follow the contours of the fenders, giving them a more prominent appearance. These trims are usually made out of brilliantly polished steel or chrome plating.
