No I haven't found another source. I have the outer rear quarters NOS, I only need the front outers as well. My originals that came off are actually in decent shape, some bends I can fix, and a little rust could be sanded and painted, rubber and bead is fine, but the fuzzy part is bad. Has anyone ever tried to just replace the fuzzy part of an outer, where would that material come from?

I keep dreaming that a set of just front outers NOS will magically appear on EBAY for a reasonable price.

"I keep dreaming that a set of just front outers NOS will magically appear on EBAY for a reasonable price." Now that's funny!
I also have NOS rear outers. All my inners are good. I'm not in a hurry, so I'm going to see what I can do about getting a new version good set of Repop front outers. I can't help you on the fuzz replacement.

I didn't win the lottery, but I hit the jackpot on Craigslist. A pair of NOS 69 inner fender wells appeared in Kentucky. When I called I asked if he had anything else, and he had a bunch of stuff from an 85 year old man that was cleaning out his barn. This guy (a self-professed non-camaro guy) was selling the stuff for him and wanted it gone, and was only doing it so the old man wouldn't just throw it away.

A pair of 69 NOS inner fender wells, 3 NOS fuzzies (2 front 1 back), 4 spear moldings and 2 retainers. I won't brag about the prices because its rude. He wouldn't split stuff up, so I had to buy everything.

I tried to leave but he wanted to get rid of everything, so I also bought a cowl air cleaner which I don't need and 69 brakes and odd 68 brakes that I think are actually chevelle. He had a bunch of pulleys and brackets and other stuff I didn't know anything about, so I said no to the rest. That was probably a mistake.

But the lesson is CALL. When I got there (4 hr drive one way), he complained about all the emails and that every single person wanted to have him ship stuff. He just wanted to get rid of it, he didn't want to email people and he had no interest in shipping anything. Great guy - best parts trip ever.

Just found this, wish I had bought this when I was there. I still think my originals can be reconditioned...at least it could be fun to try.

Just ordered 4 pc. outer set from Camaro Specialties. I agree, you would thing a "felt " kit would be available for the sweeps. My rears are in fair shape, pass fair, driver's shot. Hard parts excellent, shame they have to be shelved.

Time to head out back and tinker with the car.
