I just rescently had to replace both the front fenders of my 94 se.

i paid 150$ for both fenders in really good shape, from a scrapped bonnie.
it costed me 200$ to get them installed. Supposedly it was a hassle to install them.

Waking up can be a hassle...but $200 for install.. hmmm

Guess it would depend on the labor rates. It isn't a 15 minute job....takes a little time.

I can see it taking a while to remove. Tool me about an hour and a half to remove one the first time. Got it down to about 45 minutes with a lot of hassles (tire on, low to the ground, etc) but the hardest part is lining it back up do that it doesn't rub on the door. I am still having a few issues with that.

ok well here the job was more than just two fenders..

The parts were..
two scrapyard front fenders 150$
one front signal light (small side one) 35$
headlight and braket 65$
signal litgh bulb &socket ??$$
door switch dilly ??$

so he had to remove and install both fenders
install the headlight and signal light
and the door switch dilly(repair)

for this he charged me 260$ for labour
the total was 540$


i have to say he did a good job, he took parts from a purple 93 bonnie..
so now my bonnie is half dark green and half dark purple.. im going to paint it
during the month of May.

so you guys decide wether the price was fair.

That labor isn't bad at all from a time he probably spent standpoint. Althought the headlight and bracket are off to do a fender. The door switch was probably a pain depending on which switch it was.

I was able to get my inner fender off in about 20 minutes this weekend to bump the metal and get it ready to grind out and get it bondo'ed up.

On a '99, the inner fender has no bolts, just screws. Took the wheel off, used my cordless drill with a Phillips bit, and had it off in about 20 minutes. Easy job.
