Though the ultimate goal is to always avoid contact with other cars or with road debris while driving, some parts of your Mustang’s body & sheet metal are present to minimize damage just in case that there is an unwanted meeting. The Mustang bumpers anchor both the front and back ends of your pony car, and are designed to sustain bumps and bruises, so that the rest of the car can remain unscathed.
Though both ends of the car are likely the two most at-risk areas on your car’s body, the side of your Ford Mustang could also use an added layer of protection from unwanted contact. That was where the ever-reliable Mustang fenders come into play! Located on the sides of the doors, Mustang fenders curve around and add an extra layer of protection to the two front wheels of the car.
Fenders serve a variety of different purposes, with the main one being to keep excess dirt, or road debris away from the front braking system. Whether you are revving up your Mustang engine and engaging in a burnout on a track or are driving through a muddy back road, your Mustang tires are going to kick up all kinds of debris or potentially hazardous material. Thanks to your trusty Mustang fenders however, all of that unwanted filth does not enter the wheel well to cause any damage. In addition to protecting vulnerable areas of the car, Ford Mustang fenders cover the frame and the sides of the engine block, in order to add extra curb appeal to your Mustang’s body.
You want to do everything that you can to protect your Mustang’s beautiful body frame work, but in order to do that, you need to make sure that your Mustang fenders are in working order. The term, ‘fender-bender’ is common in the automotive world, because the Mustang fender is always at a high-risk of damage during a collision. Additionally, all of those years of making contact with dirt and road-debris head-on will eventually take its toll on your stock fenders. If you are beginning to see remnants of dust or dirt constantly pop up around your wheel well, there is a good chance that you will need to replace your Ford Mustang fenders.
