Fenders:
This guy found his on ebay for $136 but he says they dont fit well... By looking at his pics, they look okay. Good luck with that rust!

Advanced deals through Keystone, probably the largest aftermarket dealer there is.
Keystone also owns LKQ corp, which is a nationwide chain of salvage yards.

You're up in Brockway I see, I know there are a couple of yards in Brockway and Brockport, you can always give them a call too. They will often deal with LKQ, and/or are LKQ yards.

Or if you don't mind a drive, I know the owners of a yard that deals with jeeps in Ligonier. Let me know and I'll tell you who to talk to there.

im not sure what the shipping would be, but eventually i want to get rid of these and get flat fenders, i was either going to wait until they got crushed or sell them. so i thought i would offer.

nice!

I bought some aftermarket fenders that were made in Taiwan when I replaced my dented/rusted fenders before painting. They were a lot thinner metal than the OEM stuff and they required a lot of finessing/re drilling to make even from side to side. If I had to do it over again, I would find some used, rust free OEM fenders.

The replacements were a great deal, but were no where near the quality of the OEM fenders. They will work though.
