Looking for a fender, impossible to find

Hi guys,

I have a Ford Focus 01 with a bad passenger fender in silver gray frost (probably one of the most common colors here in California) since I bought it. I want to replace it asap, because I will be selling the car in 4 months when I leave the country.

I have been trying to find a used replacement on craiglist and ebay, but I can not find it in my color. I got a couple quotes around 150 dollars to get it painted in my color by professionals.

I was just wondering if somebody knows of a shop or business that sells painted fenders at good prices. I can not afford paying 200dollars for a new fender.

I have threads on other sections of the forum and I didn't get any answer, thanks

Honestly your best bet is to look at junkyards.

I tried on here to find an Infrared passenger fender for months, without any luck whatsoever. I ended up getting one at a junkyard, for about $70.

Thanks for the link WitchCitySVT, I didn't know a website like that, even I tried to look for it. I have called several junkyards here but they don't have many new cars or that's what I think.

Thank you guys norcalfocus01 and iminhell for the link of the silver focus and the interest.

This is a picture of my actual passenger fender. I think it looks better in the picture than in reality. It is not one only dent but more like small dented everywhere. I heard it would be more expensive to fix this one than getting a new one.



Thanks again, I hope I can finally find it. I detailed the car, I am actually going to post some pictures in the future, to show the before and after. I fixed scratches and small dents everywhere and some people even asked me if I had bought a new Focus :D
