The ones I got from Moss were the same gauge, but required a significant amount of trimming and fitting – no BS, I had about 10 hours to do both sides by the time I was done fitting them.  


I just assumed that my fenders were “out of shape” from nearly 60 years of abuse and as near as I can tell 8 or 9 paint jobs, bodged rust repairs, etc. etc.……………….

I recently bought a set of stone guards from one of the Big Three and was not impressed by the quality of what I received. To add to it, the prices for these are pretty steep. The pieces I took off my '59 TR3 were deeply pitted but were a heavier gauge aluminum than these new ones.... I suspect they dent/deform far more easily than the stock pieces. Seems like these are  good candidates for some fab shop to make in heavier gauge aluminum or even stainless steel. At least then, I wouldn't mind spending the $$.

They have fairly deep compound curves, which might be tricky for someone with no experience beating aluminum (or using an English

The new ones I got from TRF had the curves right, they just had a lot of extra metal around the edges that had to be trimmed away.
