Fiberglass fenders any good

A friend of mine will sell me some fiberglass front fender and I would like to get people opinion first. I have a 1990 LX convertible so I would win a bit of width (around .5 inch each side), it might allow more air to pass thru the engine bay as theres side-vents on it and I already know theres sadly not much weight difference.

Is there something im missing?
For a street car is it too much?
And will it fit straight once installed? Kind of scared it bend with bad entreposal

Thanks to everyone and keep hoping, spring is coming!

Those sude vents are for sucking air out of the fender to allowing more air to get in cooling the brakes. And as far as fitment it really depends, fiberglass will bend and warp over time and can be a real pita to get it to fit right. Only way to tell is try to see if they fit before you buy them. Its not really hard to swap fenders

Killing time isnt murder, it's suicide
