SO i have been looking around to find some front fenders for my 90 loyale wagon. I went to the local junk yards and had no luck finding a good set or pulling any. So i checked eBay, no luck, the classifieds here, no luck, and just starting to contemplate taking some serious action to get rid of rust! zzz But that wouldn't look very good, but at least better than rust.

Any pointers towards a good source for fenders? And at the same time, i need opinions on how to fix holes on the rear pannel behind the rear wheels. Rust is eating my car alive! Its a wheeler so i dont mind rough jobs to fix it. Get some sheets of metal and rivit it over? Use some kind of glue to make it weather proof? Thanks!

Hey,

Rock/Auto, $52.00 aftermarket front fender...but shipping might make you cringe.

I checked with a guy I bought 4 NOS fenders from, he's out.

You didn't ask but, rocker panels and fender arches were listed yesterday with ebay. Aftermarket.

That's all I got for you. hth

So what your saying is i could get this whole piece from ebay? Its a horrible paint job but it shows on an old wagon i had what is now pretty much rusted out on my current wagon. Could you post a link? Thanks Doug:banana:



Let me know if the pic works!

Hi,

Here's one:http://shop.ebay.com...-All-Categories

Two:http://stores.shop.e...&LH_TitleDesc=1

No rear panels but they're easier to fabricate.

YW,

Doug

nice thank you for the link. I searched earlier today for that actually and couldn't find it by searching Subaru loyale and looking through all the listings. How did you come across them? Maybe there are more parts i need just hiding? :banana: Thanks for the links!

I have two front fenders sitting on top of my car, i'll let you have em for what i paid for them, free, plus shipping, although local pickup would be much more awesome.

that sounds like an amazing deal. Depending on shipping of course. I live in Orem Ut- 84058 . If you could get a quote that would be great! And they are EA82's right? Not severly dented or rusted? Thanks again:grin:

A Subaru you don't recognize with round headlights sounds perilously close to a 360. Did you happen to notice if the Brat with t tops was a first gen? I need fenders and a tail light.

As for later model EA's, have you checked out the Tear a Part in SLC? I saw several later EAs both there and at Pick n Pull.

Gen 1 Brats didnt come with T-Tops.
Also, all of Gen 1 Subaru's had round headlights till 82 I believe.

Hi,

A regular e-mail notice is how I learned of those panels. BTW, JC Whitney has some too.

Well...parts are out there, what do you need? As you can see, folks here can and will help you out.

Doug

I just got barked at:)

+1 on the EA82 fenders, mine are getting pretty gnarly!
If anybody in Washington is willing to sell a set I would be interested. I could pick them up as well. Shipping those things is quite spendy...

I have a decent set of front fenders from a 91 loyale wagon. I'd be happy with $40 for the pair, but the shipping charges from CT to ? will probably cost more than finding a whole parts car in yor area. Look in your local area more.
