Anyone possibly able to put eyes on a SAAB 9-3 at Fox Auto U-Pull Belleville, Michigan for me?  I would like the driver side fender and possibly the hood.  Row52 says the car has been there since May 13th and I would hate to drive the 3 hours there only to find the car gone.  Lunch, beer or cash would be available for the help.  This is the car in question:

How important is the color? I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 parts car. I sold the fenders but still have the hood.  I am near Findlay Ohio.

I honestly would rather not repaint the parts, but thanks.

I am sadly out of state this weekend but could try next weekend? It's ~45 minutes from me and I don't see myself getting out there this week unfortunately.

Thanks.  I think I will head up Saturday as long as the car is still there.

I want the driver side front fender, its a hard color to come by and mine has a hole in it.  As long as the fender is good that's all I would like to know.  I may end up grabbing other stuff but that is the big one.  If you have time on Saturday  lunch is on me.

Thanks Aaron.  I’ll need to verify weekend plans with the family.  

Ill get some detailed pics of the DS front fender and post them up here tonight.   If you want them sent to you directly instead get me your mobile number and I can text them to you.

Comments now pictures later today.  

Scratches up front with some rust, but no perforations, behind the wheel.  I pushed pretty hard on the spots and they all felt solid.  Big one is crusty enough to need some filler to repair.  Lower ones are kind of covered by lower plastic cladding and are dark because they’re wet due to rain today.  Again seemed solid when I pushed on them but I don’t know what things look like beneath the cladding.  Upper rail was solid and didn’t look like it was messed with or had been removed and repainted.

The yellow is my rain jacket not scuffs.  The fat old guy is just me.

it didn't capture well, but there is an odd flaw in the fender near the window/mirror.  Surface is raised from behind and appeared to maybe be rust forming after I zoomed in on the picture.

I really appreciate you checking it out for me. I think I will skip the trip up, it's not good enough to justify the 6 hour round trip.  
 

Anything I can send you to thank you?
