Replacement Fenders

I'm going to get two new fenders. The price difference between MSA & Victoria British is $100 per fender.

Anyone had any experience with these parts? Is one really any better than the other? $100 better?

Thanks, Tim

straight fenders

Read the fine print on both. Then take your car to a better than average body shop.

I've got both catalogs and I give up, could you be a little less cryptic?

In Victoria British catalog page 3 - "made overseas"- "will most likely have a few scratches or small dents"
A good body shop can fix a pretty rough front clip for less than you would pay for two Chinese fenders with shipping. $450
As for MSA, I would call them and ask if their fenders are JDM or top quality. Then you have to decide if you want to spend $650.
Body shop here I come!

Tim, if you can find them do yourself a favor and get OEM fenders. I bought one from Victoria British and we spent hours working to get it right upon installation. Metal is thin and did not line up well at all.

I recomend as was stated before, take the fenders you have to the best real body shop in town. Find a real body shop that does custom cars. Most average shops are really pannel replacers or they just slap on bondo. A real shop will have craftpersons that are used to working the metal and will do a good job .

I got two new fenders from this place http://www.myautobodyparts.com/produ...27&browse=true
$107.09 each. I think they are the same one's you would get from Victoria British or MSA. Since I live in Southern California I was able to pick them up for free, and check them out before I paid. They aren't banged up, and they fit good.
