    Hard to say, I haven’t seen any data on it. My car unfortunately didn’t have the original fenders when I bought it. Seems to be pretty typical, very difficult to find a car with its birth fenders after all these years. I personally think that metal can be added with a skilled TIG if you really wanted it. However, I think its so rare, many people have no idea the fenders were like that.

    My 04B car does have the cutouts around the hood bumpers like that shown in post #20.

    Do they have the continuation of the flange where it arcs up over the bumpers? That's the odd, hard to find type and what this picture shows. Wish I had a closeup. On my original 70 fender the flange stops abruptly where it arcs up and then continues on once past the bumper, so only a horizontal type of flange. Most seem to be this way and all aftermarket are like this.

    Yes, the flange continues through the rubber bumper. The bumper has a horizontal slit in it to accommodate the flange.
