Re: Hunting original paint fender for 83

That's fixable...are you just trying to keep from painting?...even if you find the same colors there's no guarantee that the paint will match due to fading over the yrs...a quality paint store can match your paint easily...

Re: Hunting original paint fender for 83

I would say,

Find white truck with good fender close by in a junkyard, paint bottom blue, put on truck.

The chances of finding a white/blue fender would be slim (unless you're not in a big hurry and will to pay the freight to have it shipped from location XYZ)

The question becomes: Why are you looking for exactly that fender? If the answer is to "keep it original", you would be skating a fine line there even if you found it.

Some people just don't get it. I have had a pair of OG paint fenders shipped from CA to TX for my former 72 Suburban that were a spot on match.
