VW Front Driver Side Fender (Left), Super Beetle 1971-1973
**Continental U.S. only.
Previous accidents and body work can cause poor fitment of new sheet metal items. It is very important to test fit the fender before painting it. This will allow any necessary body work to either the body or the fender to be done BEFORE it is painted.
Once body work or paint work has been done to any sheet metal item, it can't be returned!
There are no exceptions! If after test fitting you feel the fender will not fit, DO NOT MODIFY IT. Once body work or paint work has been started, the fender can not be returned!
Install the headlights / turn signals / tail lights and fenders to ensure that everything fits correctly before painting. It is much easier to check the correct alignment before the fender is painted than afterwards.
NOTE: All sheet metal parts are sent with a black, sprayed, rust inhibitor. This is NOT paint or a primer. It must be removed prior to applying primer to the sheet metal.
This includes fenders, floor pans, aprons, deck lids ETC. Because this material is not a primer, it is not unusual for scratches to be found in this material. This does not affect the sheet metal as this material MUST BE REMOVED, thus also removing any scratches in the process. Of course dents would be considered excessive. All sheet metal is carefully inspected prior to shipping for dents. Any sheet metal that is received dented must be presented to the shipping carrier for a damage claim, REGARDLESS OF THE CONDITION OF THE BOX.
