I'm looking for fenders for my '76 beetle.  So far i can't find anyone who can guarantee that they're going to fit right.  I was hoping not to have to replace all of them--there's only two that need replacement.  If anyone knows of a company that could provide good quality fenders that will actually fit right, i would really appreciate it.

Do you have a Super or Standard Beetle and where are you located?

It is a standard beetle and I am located in Richmond, Virginia.

I tried http://www.oeveedub.com as they used to carry Beetle fenders from Italy but it looks like they're out of stock.

 

http://www2.cip1.com/?Click=30260 and http://www.800luvbugg.com both have Brazilian fenders in stock for around $95.00 each, but CIP has this disclaimer:

 

"At C.I.P. you can trust us to sell only the best replacement metal fenders available for your Beetle. We can ship by UPS directly to your door. These new metal fenders are easily installed and make  quick work of restoring your Beetle. Although we always try to offer the finest quality parts available - please realize that original quality German made fenders are not available. The best fenders made today come from Brazil, Mexico or Italy and are significantly thinner then the original German made fenders. Because new replacement fenders may have a slightly different shape, please purchase in pairs to guarantee that  you get a matched pair of fronts or rears."

 

This sounds like you're going to have to do a bit of work fitting these products. You could take a look at http://www.thesamba.com and try to get a pair of used ones that you could install.

I've heard that the Italian made fenders are the best quality around.

I bought a CIP1 rear fender for a 71 super, and it fit fine.  It wasn't as substantial as the original.
