I think there are repro fenders available. Are you putting a 85 front end on your 87/88 or did someone already covert it?

The car is an 85 and somebody put the 87/88 front end on so I’m going back to 85 because 1 it’s a lot cheaper and 2 I don’t really have a preference

You should be able to sell the undamaged parts for a good price on this forum. Good luck, I am pretty Regal fenders will also work. Someone on here would have bought a set.

Ebay all the way!!! Get the re-stamp, wait for them to go on sale, I've gotten them for under $350.00 to the door for both sides last year but I waited a month for them to go on sale. The re-stamps weren't bad at all, lined right up just as good if not better than a set of used ones that were tweaked to a different car for over 35 years. Good to see the 85 nose, my cutty is an 87 but I hate the euro nose so I put an 85 nose on. You could try LKQ but you'll pay $75.00-$150.00 more for clean used $h!t that isn't going to line up any better.

I appreciate the reply! And I looked on eBay and couldn’t find a damn thing maybe I was writing the wrong stuff but I just found one off of another car about a hour from me for $65 so I’m going to go get it tomorrow hopefully and throw some updated pictures up here and I Like both noses I don’t really have a preference on which is goes on my car I’m just happy I was able to find something

No doubt. I've parted a couple of 87-88 cutlasses over the years. Pass headlight $100, pass grille and trim $90, pass corner light $40. rocket emblem $50-$100 depending on condition. OP should be able to pay for the fender and complete 81-86 header by selling a few of the 87 parts.
