    be careful of cheap japan fenders, Ive installed plenty, and 9 out 0f ten need to be adjusted to the point of added body work, sometimes it is cheaper to get the real thing and bolt on or weld on in the case of rockers and be done, but once in a while youll get one thats not too bad. there are a few restoration places on line that you could research. or look for old stock some where, I found taillight assembly for a 1965 pontiac lemans new in the package at the dealer on line, it was sitting on the shelf for years. Ask your chevy parts man to do a search nation wide. hope this helps. goodluck

    Sarah check racingjunk.com a lot of times u can find parts here or links to other parts suppliers ,i might be wrong but i don,t think u will find any cheaper ,also a lot of the after market parts don,t fit rite

    if you want to spend a little time searching go to www.car-part.com, you can search by year make and model for used or sometimes new parts, can look by state and almost all have toll free numbers, i have found many parts for older cars, is a national site for salvage yards and such, hope this helps

    Im not telling anyone what to do ,but if I were restoring a truck to keep I would buy original equipment, for sure. look for some chevy or chevy truck web sites and look until you get good ones. occasionally you can find used ones in real good shape, dont settle for second best unless you cant find the good ones.That is only my opinion, Im not a know it all or anything, Ive restored cars since late 70 s, and thats what Ive experienced. if you are going to sell it then you can give a little.
