hi everyone. i've been looking for a pair of jdm itr fenders lately. i wanted metal ones because i always want to go as much oem as possible but i've been looking weeks with no luck. so today i called up a guy around the bay area who's selling a pair of fiberglass jdm itr fender replicas and he's selling them for REALLY cheap. i just wanted to know how many of you out there have/had fiberglass fenders? and how do they hold up? would you recommend it?
i really need some feedback on this because later on i don't want to regret it. i know the fenders are gone if i get into any kind of collision. thanks you guys. oh yeah if anyone has a metal ones up for sale, hit me up
. i think i'm gonna wait out a week or so to make sure i find out more before i decide if i want to buy the fiberglass fenders or not.

I have fiberglass fenders and i must say: If you can help it, go metal. A cat hit my car one fiberglass fender one day and busted all of the screw holes to my bumper on teh right side. Needless to say, I was dismayed and am in the market for metal fenders right now.

i know all the jdm front ends i've seen have metal fenders.. fiberglass fenders may be cheap but u get what u pay for.. i hear lots of bad stories about fiberglass and people having to go back to metal because of their frustration.. "i wish i had waited for the metal fenders" etc...

you might want to ask a shop if they will be getting any front clips in.. or if they can special order them for you.

feedback...I have fiberglass fenders unfortunately. THey're holding up alright, I was smart enough to raise my ride during the winter. Some things you can't help though and w/ fiberglass things can get ugly. They're cheap, but I would definately pay the extra money for metal ones. It's just I got my car the way it is. Oh also the screws holes that holds the fender in place, yeah...they're cracking around it, wack huh.

oh man such an old post. anyway i went metal and thank god i did. i got into an accident and the metal ones were salvageable. if i had gotten fiberglass it would have shattered to bits.
