After market inner fender?

My OEM front inner fenders are in pretty rough shape. Anyone use the Goodmark replacement? Curious on the fit...

Also, I see that the camero inners will fit "with modifications ". Anyone have experience with those?

Thanks!

All the repop inner fenders fit well. The trimming required is only along the front edge, and not a big deal especially if you have the old ones to use as a pattern.

Agreed. This is exactly what I did. Placed the original over the high quality Camaro piece, scribed a line, and started cutting. The piece removed is pretty small.

The front repop fenders will need massaging to get to fit properly. My body guy had lots of problems with mine. I believe most all body panels are made by the same Chinese company but there may be two of them, not sure.

Maybe because yours are '69? I used quite a few for '68 with minimal effort.
