looking for a passenger fender desperately
Well I have written here before, I am from Spain but I am living in San Diego for a year. I want to get my fender bender fixed. I quoted some body shops but the budgets they gave me were incredibly insane. For fixing a fender I got a quote of 850$ yesterday, I almost asked there "where do you get what you take? That shit must be good"
I know how to fix it on my own, but I thought that there might be a solution without replacing the whole part, like paintless dent repair, but apparently there is not.
So I need to get a grey silver frost passenger fender to put it in place of my dented one. I know how to do this. The problem is that I can not find it anywhere. Although there are many gray focus in the market, it seems that when they get crashed, their parts disappear. I am looking at craiglist and ebay, but nothing.
So maybe there is somebody from here that can tell me what's the process to get scrap parts such as this, here. I heard about some mechanic store called Taiwanese that import crappy low quality parts from Taiwan for a really cheap price. I can not find where they are, although I would prefer to put a metal part instead of a ceramic one, if i can not find anything better, it's better than paying around 180$ for new one, I am a student, not an executive.
Thank you for standing me
