- The R129 SL class Mercedes front fender, also known as the front wing or front quarter panel, is a crucial exterior component located above the front wheels on both sides of the vehicle. It plays several essential roles in protecting and enhancing the overall appearance of the car.
Protection: The front fender acts as a shield, guarding the vehicle's body and engine components from road debris, dirt, water splashes, and other external elements that could cause damage.
Wheel Housing: The fender provides a housing for the front wheels, covering and enclosing the wheel well. It ensures that the wheels' motion and rotation are contained within the fender area, preventing debris thrown up by the tires from affecting the car's body or nearby pedestrians and other vehicles.
Aerodynamics: Car designers often shape the front fender to aid in improving the vehicle's aerodynamics. A well-designed fender can help reduce air drag and enhance the car's overall fuel efficiency and performance.
Stylistic Element: The front fender significantly contributes to the car's aesthetic appeal. It is one of the visible exterior panels, and its design can define the vehicle's overall look and style. Car manufacturers often incorporate various curves, contours, and character lines on the fender to give the car a distinctive and appealing appearance.
Material: R129 Front fenders are made from lightweight material - sheet metal (steel).
Repair and Replacement: In case of minor accidents or collisions, the front fender may get damaged. Fortunately, it is a replaceable part in most cars, and repairs can be done relatively easily, either by straightening the metal or replacing the entire fender if needed.
