Where's the best place to purchase front fenders online? Quality vs price (as well as shipping). Thanks.

go to a local JY and get a pair, they are way better than aftermarket.  I bought a pair in perfect condition for 100 bucks.  Almost the same color not that I care as I hope to have this thing painted soon.

you in a small town?  I would try a JY you trust and see if they can find you a pair.  I live in a relatively small place and they had a RC minus the hatch! damn it.  But I got the fenders and I'm think about going back and seeing if they have rad core support and doors.  I would like the later model doors with the power mirrors.  Good luck by the way but it might be worth it to expand your search area.

i guess small is a bit relative but there's about 3,000 in my town. there's a junk yard about 30 min away that i tried to get doors through once and they never called me back on what they found. found doors since but i've lost a bit of faith in that market. i'll try calling them tomorrow though, but how much cheaper are aftermarket fenders compared to oem?

i payed $125.00 for an aftermarket RH fender for my 86 RC in Ohio. it fit OK but i would have liked OEM ( hard to find rust free fenders here) found a used fender in PA for $75.00 With a dent and rust. if you are looking for top quality by OEM. Aftermarket fenders will work fine for a driver but they will require some finesse to install them and line them up. the bigest diference i found was the OEM fender is about 10 lbs  more than the aftermarket fender.

ditto the salvage yard/oem.  Aftermarket, when you can find it, is a poor product.  Check our classifieds for people parting out trucks and you will likely find something you'd like.

Raybuck has decent stuff but only patch sections (the arch in this case).
