ok, heres the deal, i want to put the fenderwells back in my regal, but i want some chrome metal ones, as you may know the og ones came plastic, i don't want that. i want some metal ones so i can chrome them. the question i have is, were there any gbodies that came with metal fenderwells that could possibly work. when i went to the LRM houston show, there was a cutlass there that had metal fenderwells but didnt get to talk to the guy. someone told me that 80's caprice fenderwells will bolt right up they just need to be cut in the back where it meets the firewall because they are too long, anyone know anything about or heard of this.....? any help would be appreciated.

My 78 GP has plastic. I suspect theyre all plastic. Since the GBody was a downside from the 70s ABody, GM would probably find weight-reducing solutions.
