Where is the best place besides E PLAY to find real NOS body parts? What is the going price on a front fender for a 68?

I am looking for a standard right front fender(non RS)

Or should I get a used original part? Any suggestions on that?

Thanks

Frank -

I'd go with a good, used original fender over NOS.  I've seen many flaws in NOS parts, specifically sheetmetal.

I agree with Paul, especially in terms of fit (and obviously, originality), go original if you can.  Beyond the E-scene, if you haven't discovered the best junk yards and swap meets in your area, you should.
I'd be afraid to quote you a real price, as they vary at swap meets, too.

We had a good conversation about suppliers a while back:

As you can see opinions vary...
