    I haven't ever heard of them, but after checking them out, see that they while most of the parts are for 2g and later, they do make replacement front t/s and sidelamp lenses for 1ga (like mine). Prices seem stupid low even compared to junky used parts on ebay, so I'm inclined to order some and see how they look. Now it's probably a lot easier to repro a small clear plastic lens then a sheetmetal door or hood panel. I will say that manufacturer support of the 1ga is getting very poor, and most dealership websites that list parts with prices simply cancel your order because they don't stock/ can't actually get them. I would imagine that while the exact fit may need a little more tweaking than a true factory part, its better to have smooth sheetmetal rather than dinged up to start with. Please update your post if you end up purchasing to let others know how it went. Who knows, they may start supporting the 1ga market more!

    I'm seriously thinking of some fenders for my 92. Its possible they wont come with the holes for the mouldings but should be just some measuring and drilling maybe. Anything is better then my fenders that crunch everytime u open the door cause the door grabs them and squishes everytime the doors opened.

    They generally don't fit as nice as oem stuff. but if oem isn't availible, it's all we got. I tried to find some new 1ga fenders a couple years ago and it was a no-go.

    Likely Chinese made so they are likely thin and need really good primer or they will rot out within a few years.
