Nice work, mine has similar damage on passenger side. Is that the side that was torn?

The passenger side is the one that had the hole tore out and the driver side is the one that had the bottom lip cracked.

Start the restoration. As the person said above a lot of work and hours to restore these.

Installing new material from a donor fender plate.

Plastic welding in a new piece from the donor plate.

One down, and one to go!

Both Red Fender plates done. Cloe to eighty hours of work.

Wheel side too.

Repair Nuts for Plastic Fender Plates


I made a few of these up out of stainless steel to use on torn fender mounting holes with 5/16-18 insert nuts.

The nuts are available on ebay, but I forget their real name?

They just snapped in the square holes I made in the stainless befor bending them up.

I spent countless hours on my original black liners. Ordered a set of aftermarket and sent them back, they were not even close. Here are a couple photos.




Finally ready to coat after hours of prep, several light coats work best.

Used SEM products after thorough cleaning

Those look AWESOME! Nicely done. Curious, what has the group used for plastic that has broken off? When I removed mine, I had a few plastic areas around the bolts by the lip of the wheel well that cracked off.
