Default yeah

Im pretty sure you cant "change it" like a door... but you could cut it out and weld in a new one.. but it would be easyer to drive it off a cliff get insurance money.. buy another one..

Real Beetles had removable rear fenders. So do Fieros. But for a Bonneville what you want is a rear quarter patch panel and a body shop to install (is welded in) and paint it..

mine are rusted too, well i figure that is why you want to replace it... I was thinking about patching it with some fiberglass and then using body filler...
