I have several fiberglass fenders and panels and none of them have the manufacturers name on them, wish I could help because the quality differs among them.

I purchased fiber glass rear fenders from Speedway and their quality is very good, I also have some Superior Fiber Glass front fenders, running boards and frame aprons, I'm not real happy with their quality.  Try Chev's of the Forties

With the fire at superior they are not doing fiberglass for awhile. I have been trying to fit some glass fenders on the 35 master. WHEW. I don't know if the poor fit is due to them sitting around, or they were made this way.  No matter they are starting to see thing my way.

Wish I knew who made the parts that I have but did notice that my fiberglass rear tail pan and fenders are "grey" thick and fit nicely.  The front fenders are "black" and thin and lack casting details.  My running boards are "white", thick and fit nicely (probably Speedway).  Appears that the "black" molded parts are inferior to the other colors (not very scientific :D)

Can't really discuss fitment of the black front fenders because I have been cutting/modifying them significantly.
