This IS a joke post.
No joke.

As the OP said, Partstrain has fenders for right about $100 for the driver's side before shipping, even less for passenger--PartsTrain.com - Fender For 2000 Mercedes Benz S430 Base 8 Cyl 4.3L. With shipping, it'll be right about $190.

The parts are legit, though not MB, and the paint is direct from a dealer. Granted, this will likely not rival the work of a professional shop when completed, but seems reasonable that with care, attention, patience and modest expectations, he can get a satisfactory result. It will almost certainly be better than what he's got now.

I'm looking forward to more pictures as the project moves forward. And thanks, memet119, for the partstrain find.
