Fender questions for a friend of mine...
A friend of mine with a 2012 Arctic JKU got smacked in Manhattan a few weeks back, and damaged his pretty painted passenger front fender. He ordered a new one. It arrived, and when he brought it to the body shop to get it painted, they told him it's the wrong kind of texture. Is there a different fender one must buy if they are going to get them painted, or are they all the same and the body shop guy is clueless? Thanks for the help!

The shop is telling him that it's the "wrong one" and that there is a smoother one. He got a replacement OEM fender I think from Quadratec.

Well, just went on Qtec and the guy is right. They do indeed have a different fender for painting. Live and learn.
