Find a full car part out or a junk yard. I picked one up off a car at the yard with inner liner for like $40.

What year, make and model of vehicle? For my 70 El Camino, I have used Dynacorn sheet metal wherever possible.

I guess that would of been pertinent too, assumed they were looking for a 4th gen fender. But OP, what do you need a fender for?

I need it for a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am, Biketopia was correct in his assumption lol. I live in a very small town, I've checked the two junkyards here, both the firebirds they have, have mint drivers fenders and destroyed passenger fenders. LOL

haha, I know the pain. I needed a pass side fender, kept finding 98 and up and any 93-97's the pass fender was destroyed. Got lucky and made my way into the yard on chance one day and scored what I needed though. There's probably one around here, but being on the east coast would murder you in shipping.

Murder might be an understatement. Lol. I could buy a steel replacement from Summit for 199$ shipped, but I really don't want to add a steel fender, when I'm trying to shave weight off as it is. LOL
