Vented fenders

I was wondering if anyone has or seen metal vented fenders . I had recently purchased a set from a local ff in Nj... It seems to me that trying to replace these are impossible ... Maybe someone knows where I can source these fenders I say again they metal not fiberglass etc. Any info is appreciated ...

Moved to "Focus SVT". I have not seen the vented metal fenders advertised anywhere for about 5 years. The last place I saw them advertised was on JC Whitney.

If you're dead set on them, what about making your own? There's lots of vent options you could look through without trying to get too "ricey".

I had actually picked up (and I'll probably get flamed for this) a set of 78 Trans Am fender vents that I was going to mount backwards to give the appearance of air intakes on an F4-Phantom II, to go with the theme I was going with on my last Focus. I think it could have been done right and looked cool. I don't care what other people think what looks good or bad on my car, it's mine and I do as I please. I tend to like the things that others don't, as long as it's done well, and not hacked together.

I did something similar to this. I had recieved a set of fiberglass fenders that was warped, so I just cut the vents out and fabricated them into my metal fenders.
