WTB: 300D driver and passenger front fenders, perfect condition

Does anyone have front fenders for a 300D in perfect condition (no dings or dents or rust)? I'm not worried about the paint, just the metal condition.
Thanks!
gilberdp@gmail.com or PM please

Here is a source for body panels. Just be careful with these guys, as their reputation is shaky at best. However, if you need a fender.......

Thanks. I called Adsit and they said that these body parts are Chinese knock-offs. I don't think I'll be happy with the quality.
That's why I'm looking for high quality used - if those even exist...

Used doors and fenders are EASY to get if you live in Los Angeles or another large low-rust area. I've replaced one door and the front left fender on my wagon with ones that have matching paint and it looks pretty good. Even coupe doors can be found.

If you're up to it, there are at least 2 junkyards in town each with 3 or 4 W123s that you could pull the fenders from. One on the north side and one on the east side.

1982 280SL - Petrol Green/Palamino
1984 300CD - Signal Red/Palamino?
1994 E420 - Brilliant Silver/Gray
1995 E320 wagon - Brilliant Silver/Gray
