Stepside rear fender advice

I need a set of rear stepside fenders for my 59. I guess I have to go repop.
Are they all the same China stuff and are any better than others? I see some $100 price swings depending on where you look. I was thinking LMC if they are all from he same factory...
Any direction would be great.

Watch Craigs list for "pickup bed trailers" I bought an old trailer for $250 that had fenders that were much better than the ones I had.

Make sure to read close on repop. A lot of them are fiberglass and not even thin gauge steel. Had the same issue when I got a transmission floor cover, it was fiberglass. Did not know it was even an option to get fiberglass.

I have a pair from a 56, they are not perfect but very repairable.

Even if you go original, you may have trouble lining up the gaps. I have had a lot of experience with Dynacorn aftermarket fenders and original fenders when it comes to body work. if you cant find any straight used ones, Dynacorn fenders are the way to go. Tucker's should have them available. haven't ordered from them in a while. 1-800-544-1955. Hope this helps!
