Can anyone recommend a solid place to order a replacement fender for a buddy of mine? Thanks in advance.

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming

Frscke1 got his fender off of a donor van. Plus the entire drivers side sheetmetal. Had to load it up in a box truck..

He got me a 40 door and a big length of lower sheet metal, plus all the stainless wheel opening trim, plus a few other trick items.

So I do know that Frscke has that the inside track on that place in Van Diego. A and B Truck dismantling.

Good Hunting!

I got all what Wedgy wanted + the whole side of the van + wing windows (both sides), dog house, seat swivels and some small goodies for $400. Ive sent alot of people to them and stripped every Chevy van that came in, so I guess I got a deal

I grabbed a front clip off of a 75-ish G10 when I bought my 82 G10. I thought having the core support would make the swap to early grille easier, but I don't think it will be anymore work than cutting the original core support for the headlights. Anyway, I grabbed mine at a local scrap yard here in VA and they simply cut the whole clip off and loaded it onto my trailer all for $300. I won't tell you how much vacation fun I had to bribe the kids with to help me unload the heavy a#$ thing off the trailer though. lol

I plan on cutting the whole thing apart, squirreling away the spare parts just in case I ever end up needing replacements in the future, and I have another top secret side project lined up to get a second use out of the fenders and hood in the meantime. Should start that project this spring/summer. grin

Meh... It's ok, but that side marker light hanging out is a no-go for me.
lol

I thought I'd found a source for new replacement fenders several years ago...
Am I remembering incorrectly?

Psychic much? Patio bar and hopefully portable, with some wild paint.
