    Go on Craigslist and search Milwaukee, WI. There is a guy on there who says he has several good OE fenders.
    I don't know, but maybe that is driving distance for you.

    Unless you are looking for NOS then the latest fender from AMD isn’t too bad.
    Just about any original fender will have rust issues at the bottom. The factory design was really bad there with overlapping pieces that trapped dirt and moisture.

    I took one of these new AMD fenders and used the bottom section and grafted it onto my original and it turned out pretty good. The door edge and the bottom line matches very well and just the wheel opening required a bit of work to match up the edge radius. The inner structure is a little bit off but can be worked and even then can’t be seen once it is on the car.

    If yours are not far gone, fix them. Nothing fits like the original and I have personal and fellow Nasty members trial fitting experiences to prove it;).
    Just trying to help.

    I am the so called guy from Milwaukee Craigslist mentioned above. I have about 5 pairs of GM OEM fenders 2 lefts and 2 rights that are rust free and in VGC and 3 lefts and 3 rights that have been repaired on the bottoms for sale but I will not ship them
    ( pick up only ). Oh and buy the way I've seen the new AMD fenders and they are better but still don't fit.

    Hoov is awesome to deal with so if you can drive there, I would go for it. Wish it wasn't so far for me.
