Product Condition Grades
Below is a general description of what the criteria is for our product condition grades. These are generalizations that are intended to give you an idea of the condition of the product at a quick glance. Because different parts degrade at different rates, there are variances in what the letters represent, please see the products description for details about the condition of any particular product.
A = Excellent / Above Average
B = Average / Some flaws / Good to Excellent Driver Quality
C = Obvious flaws / Poor to Average Driver Quality
D, E, F = Worse, Worser, Worsest
Our grade "A" fenders are truly what you would expect from an "A" rated part! We never get returns on our grade "A" fenders which is very important considering the shipping costs involved. Grade "A" fenders have no rust or excessive filler and nothing more than dings or light scrapes for damage. When you turn it over you will not see anything more than light surface rust and no distorted wheel lip areas from over sized tires rubbing. We really inspect the area where the fender extension bolts on well as many times minor damage in this area can mean major headaches when you try to line everything up. We also probe aggressively with a very sharp awl at the bottom of the fender behind the wheel as they often will rust in between the inner structure and outer skin where dirt collects.On occasion, grade "A" fenders will still retain the original paint! Included in the price is a wooden crate as we find wrapping them in cardboard is just not a good risk. Of course if you pick up your sheet metal in person a discount will apply since no crate will have to be built.
Keep in mind that when ordering multiple over-sized items from us online that the shopping cart does not know how to best combine items to save you the most money. We suggest cutting and pasting your order into an email so we can manually calculate shipping costs or just select "manually calculate my shipping" when you go through checkout.
