Home Depot and Lowes of any decent sized home improvement or hardware store should have it in stock,by the foot.
You can get it in many different thicknesses and hole shapes.

my first question is I understand the fenders are rare but just because one guy wanted fenders really bad and paid in my case !/3 what the whole tractor is worth doesnt mean thats "fair market value" it just means he wanted them really bad.. are they worth $250 restored?
my second question is.. Am I being too nice of a guy who says.. okay you need a grille to finish off your restoration? I have one in fair shape.. heres the emblem and everything you need for a reasonable price? y'know heres 4 brand new bolts for it.. I'm looking foreward to seeing it finished! Not, "well i want $100 for the grille and $25 for the emblem and $50 for the grille support and $200 for the fenders and $75 for the mounting pan and those are all firm prices but we can work out a package deal" I thought as collectors we were supposed to help eachother out in preserving the history.. i'll rebuild your engine you paint my tractor.. not you want these parts so i'm going to price them as high as I can to get the most out of you..
pardon my rant

I feel like its probly a good opportunity to get the parts i need to do up my Original after my 128 puller (almost done) I also feel like i am totally getting screwed by some person who THINKS he's got $1000 in parts just because its a collectors item and people want it..

Are these prices in Ontario close to you or will you have shipping and/or pickup costs too? Really nice fenders and pan in U.S. dollars the $275 would be my top end. The emblem can easy go $25 around me if its clean more like $35 U.S. ($50 if it is VERY nice) The grill and shell I agree are WAY TOO HIGH (U.S. or Canadian)
I know everything is worth what we are willing to pay, but I think I'd keep looking...
