I saw this on Ebay and it sounds like a great deal for the money. I had not heard these were being reproduced. Maybe he can to the front fenders next! One can only hope.

You probably will have to copy and paste the above

But under $300 for a pair of rear fenders seems like he would sell a bunch

I think this is only patch panels, and not the whole quarter.

I just asked the seller if these are bolt on replacements. I will post when I get a response

I saw that and almost hit the BIN, but noticed the same thing. It sounds like a repair panel, not a complete quarter panel.

They look kinda wavy at the top of the wheel opening.

Got a reply from vendor confirming it is a patch panel.

Very misleading advertising. I don't think I saw anything about a patch panel.

You an tell that it a half panel by the height of it. Looks like it would take a lot of hammer and dollie work to get it even ready for mud work. Has to be a real cheap built china panel.

The way I see it is that its a start in the right direction,China or not I hope it leads to better panels and then to full fenders.

The image only shows one panel patch. The second one is the image copied and flipped, imperfections and all.

It looks like it would only need a few more inches on it to make it a full height panel. I presumed the rest of it disappeared becasue of the angle. So close, but its difficult to tell if the panel is accurate as others have mentioned.
