Would You Pay $550 for a pair of GEN 1 Fiberglass Fenders?
Posted 29 July 2004 - 01:46 PM
NOS is not an option, if they were, they would cost $160 each (old dealer price) Plus shipping.
I've been in touch with a gentle man that has a pair of brand new fiberglass fenders. Supposed to be absolutely a perfect fit, made in a two piece mold, gel-coat surfaces, ready for primmer and paint....Obviously, if they are as stated, they would be so cool.
Very tempting but obviously pretty pricy. Part of me thinks that even thinking about this, is an indication that I'm very very sick. I paid $800 for the Brat and now I'm thinking about paying 2/3s that for fenders??
What would you do?

It's so tempting. It's a rediculous quantity of money. But then, it's only money and I'm in this Brat for the long haul. My Fiance said recently "you'll have this Brat for the rest of your life won't you?" Of course I will. I could but another gen 1 (with issues) for $550. But then I think, how many gen 1 brats with built EA82T's in them do you know of with a pair of fiberglass fenders? The more I get into this project the more I lean towards the show car end of the spectrum. I mean, I want to drive this thing daily and fast but, I want it to look perfect too. I want it pimp. I want a carbon fiber hood(Thats a tall order I know). I want brown leather interior.
Ohhh why did I even call the guy to see if by some off chance he had fenders for a gen 1.......
I wonder what they'd take off a 1/4 mile time?
