Are fiberglass fenders available for a 758?

Postby steve s. » Fri Feb 12, 2016 8:08 pm

A friend is looking for fiberglass replacement fenders for a 758. He has been told that someone still makes them. Does anyone know of a source ? I imagine that good used fenders might be acceptable, too. Thanks.

I don't believe anyone is currently making fiberglass fenders for any model Brockway at this time. Northeast Fiberglass was the last and NYS regulations got too tough to comply with so they stopped. A 761 fender may be able to be cut down to allow installation on a 758. That process works on a 361 cut to a 358.

Steve, if he finds 761 fenders have him contact me before the jigsaw comes out. The set I have are already cut.... I'll end up adding on if I have to use them.

Al at NE had the molds but was not making them anymore as Stan stated. Might be worth calling him to see if he will sell them. Any good marina will have the resources to make them if you had the molds.

Al has retired and no longer owns the molds. I purchased the grill molds and headlight bezel molds from him. I have expressed an interest to the current owner of the fender molds to take on the work of doing the fenders. The same folks that use my molds to make the grills made the fenders and grills for North East.

Richie, I bought the forms went Al was shutting down. I tried to get my local body shop to start making them, but to no avail. I have been working on another source, but if you have an interest PM me and we can go from there.
