The last I heard, maybe on the Sol forum, was that DDM had a delay in getting parts and some that were ordered 3 months ago are now being delivered.

Does anyone know if there is a YouTube video of replacing the inner fender skins? Or a detailed manual? As clean as this car is, I sort of want to replace both so they both have the same aged look. Any thoughts about the molded mud guards?

Replacing the fender liners shouldn't be to hard. Couple of bolts, plastic retainers here and there.
Removal of the wheels/rims is the best choice.
Careful when lifting your car here. Jack stand locations, lifting points, pucks or lack there of has been known to crack the front quarter panels in some, err most cases.

OEM or aftermarket prices and availability is next here? Through the dealer parts dept. expensive maybe.
Other online parts places can be cheaper but you have to pay for shipping and delay, with the possibility of damage in transit. Return to sender, claims, replacement order, more delay.

I have both on my car at the present. Driver side fender liner is aftermarket one.
Works for me, not bad price under $50. I think?
Passenger side is OEM and is different, that one has wear and tear to it.
Busted up some when dealer replaced battery through it, instead of taking the front quarter panel off.

Going through a good body shop might be an option IF.. you don't want to do this job yourself?
Cheaper part price, cheaper labor costs too, maybe?
Now as far as the molded mud guards goes... OEM or aftermarket can be a hazard to your quarter panels again here.
Some owners like them, others not so much.

Mine came with the car, factory ordered I guess, maybe dealer installed.
They can err will catch speed bumps, low dips, drainage culverts, inclined angled driveways, etc.
Can cause stress cracks or... knock a big ole hole in your quarter panel. IF you have a body shop do this
wheel fender liner replacement, they can repair and reinforce the weak points on our quarter panels,
IF... they do break for any reason in the future?
