Q on fenders

One of my fenders has a dent in it (you can blame the poly-urethane Blitz bumper for that) and it is going to cost me $300 to fix.

I've got my eyes on the lambo door kit that those Hungarians are making, and was wondering if I would be better off just buying new fenders. I've seen a few with the gill-type holes in them...what do you guys think?

by the way x1 fenders are fiberglass so there a little weaker than stock but you shouldnt be throwing things or ramming your fender on a normal basis anyways and they need to be like molded for install

Yeah! Get aftermarket fenders! It gives you that last bit of edge to a full bodykit. X-1's are nice. Veilside also makes fenders you can look into. www.veilsideusa.com

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

Go with x-1 fenders.. it'll go great with your kam rear vents.

the only thing is, it might be a little expensive to install. It's a direct replacement, but it might require some shaving and sanding to fit perfectly, not to mention that the shop will probably need to blend the paint onto the doors and Hood.
