Wow. I wouldnt sit quiet. Id demand at least half my money back for that garbage if thats how all of them are stamped. The most common reason we need these is because of the lower sections rotting out. I can see some tweaking needed, but you have the whole bottoms needing re-fabricated. You can do that to factory fenders. Just buy patch panels and brace. Sorry, but thats inexcusable from them.
You are right, that is the way it should be but........ I had an issue with Dynacorn. I posted a thread here about it. The lower firewall they sent was stamped wrong. I contacted a senior manager in Cali. Sent him pictures and he promised to look into it. I never heard back. Nothing! A half dozen emails sent went unreplied. So, my options were sue them? I don’t have the time or resources for that, unfortunately.
I purchased these AMD fenders from a dealer that ordered them for me. He had done all of the sheet metal replacement on my vehicle and was going to continue with fitting, gapping,and preparing my vehicle for paint, once I realized I was way over my skill level.
He told me he had just fit NOS fenders on a 67vert, and they fit worse than reproductions. He was aware of what needed to be done to make the AMD fenders work properly, I had no clue what to do with them. He was supposed to take her in January but that turned into May, then July, now it’s,”I’m not sure when I can fit her in”. Very frustrating, so now I’m on another wait list with another restoration shop. I’m frustrated and 9 months behind where I should be. My vehicle should be painted and I’d have the drive train in and running and most likely be working on the interior by now, but........
This crap really pisses me off. If I performed like this at work,I’d be unemployed. Sorry, rant over.
