    The drivers fender on my 73 is perfect except the headlight bucket mounting area which was bumped and to me is unrepairable. If anyone has a junk fender but the headlight area is good, let me know. Also willing to trade/partial trade.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry to say I dumped mine in the trash, but the headlight bucket area was not very well stamped.

    I may try to carefully cut it off myself and try to fix it off the car. I will give it one last effort. Fender is perfect everywhere else so its a little frustrating.

    Can you post some pics? There might be a OE around my locality.

    Sorry for the crappy pics. Primer hides alot of the small dimples, dents, and how its out of round.

    If you can cut about 6" back from the front, then that would make it efficient. My zip is 33596. Thanks!

    It was bumped from under the headlight area on the front. The internal bracket that holds the bucket in place is bent out of shape. The outer lip on the front is dented up too. Hard to see it in the pic I sent because of the lighting.
