fender question

alright, so I found a 2000 Saleen that needs some new fenders... and I was wondering, what sort of options do I have here? I know of stock, and Z3, and that's it... I really don't know about putting fiberglass fenders on the car though, seems like a gamble. So, I need opinions about this... maybe if anyone knows of metal, or CF Z3's, with a link or something?

I was debating whether the gill-like features of the z3 fender would go along with the gill-like features of the Saleen kit.

Re: fender question

There used to be a company that made fenders with louvers stamped into the metal. They looked really good, if I ever need new ones, I'd get those. I'll try to find 'em.

Re: fender question

If you get a fiberglass fender, there is an 80% chance it wouldn't fit and will cost you the price of the fender to make it fit.

If you want Z3 fenders, buy the metal insert and an OEM fender and have them weld it in.

OEM still would look better. Saleens don't need anything else.

Re: fender question

Aftermarket Z3 fenders always look out of place to me, like someone just kinda chopped the car into pieces and took this piece and that piece and put it all back together. I have a friend obsessed with them who has a riced out eclipse, and let's just say it looks like crap. Stick with oem, it'll look better.

Re: fender question

why would you want fiberglass or CF? the stock metal fenders weigh practically nothing already. at least mine do. I had to pull mine off the other day and it's just a piece of cheap sheet metal.
