either these are origin over fenders that fit like complete SHIT.
orr... we have a really shady seller and is on this forum. (952jz240sxr)

first off, i was told that they were on his car. and that they were in FACT origin.
then he showed up with them. top corner cracked.
said he didn't see that.
and that he had other ones on his car.
i asked him a few days later to trade drivers side fenders because of the crack.
said he sold them.

i got them mounted up right now but i'm still trying to fit the driveirs corner light...

but check out this beautiful fitment....

dood i can almost guarantee those are origin fenders.
mine fit exactly the same way.
also my origin front bumper fit like shit.

honestly i think the version select shit fits better.
but origin is just a knock off of a knock off anyway silent

it could be real origin and he could be an honest seller, shit DOES morph out of shape if its not properly placed when put away... so u never know.

but all of the origin shit that ive seen(bumpers, fenders, side skirts) has a decent fit.

doesnt fit like a glove/isnt exactly oem perfect, but isnt as far off as that fender.

Its aftermarket fiberglass. Some fitting required which is why most companies tell you to take your car to a bodyshop to have aero installed. Mount it up tight and get the fitment as close to perfect as you can and let it sit out in the sun for a while and it should work itself out some. Tape something like a rag under the inside to push that fender out to line up with the door and that should help as well.

I dont think thats Origin.
Origin overs are either gray or white.
Ive never seen anything Origin that fit like shit.
And ive had alot of Origin shit over the years.

Almost positive thats not origin.

nah mayne, my origins were horrible, just like that, all gappy and ill fitting, and the inside of the lip where it bolts up was like sticking up if you know what i mean? i had to take a heat gun to it and slowly work it down so i could bolt them up,
i sold them to a local dood and bought some VS.

I've had issues with both Version Select and Origin overfenders. Its a common issue esp with the passenger side. With time the mold changes and the actual pieces reflects that. Consider the time that they have been sitting there also.

The seller might have drilled/dremeled a larger mounting surface so that the fenders have room to move. I find that drilling a larger hole on the fender will create more room for it to be pulled out to match the door. Adjusting the bottom two bolts helps too.

i could have that fender fitting perfect in about 15min.

I'm guessing you just used the previous owners holes... who knows how messed up his car was. I've installed J-blood, D-Max, and Vertex over fenders... none of which bolted into place the first try. It just comes with the territory, aftermarket body parts won't be perfect every time. People who mess with body parts a lot know that, comparably, Origin has some of the best fitment of the industry.

i didnt vote because there was no "Lazy Install" option
