I have been looking for a better left front fender for 55 f100,for too many years.i have a nos on the right...should I keep looking for a nice stock or sell the nos and buy a matching pair of repops.i also have a pair of glass ones but not wanting to go that route. what to do??? are you guys happy with the repos or do you wished you had done things differently. thanks for any reply.
Our truck had a lot of issues when we got it including inch thick bondo caked on everywhere & significant rust issues in the cab & bed. I just looked at those fenders & it would have been months of grinding. We chose to work on the cab & bed & bypass the fenders by going with reproduction fiberglass ones.
I was pleasantly surprised with the thickness & quality of the fiberglass fenders & they won't rust. They aren't exactly plug & play - you still have to massage them to get the fit exactly like you want but it wasn't a lot of effort. We did stay with reproduction steel running boards - I just wasn't confident about stepping on fiberglass.
Our fenders were around $265ea - well worth it so we could concentrate on saving the bed & cab.
