Like the title says, I'm looking for a silverstone fender. Passenger side. Must be in good shape.

Me too, silverstone 2000 m5 , front bumper, hood, and rear bumper /quarter panel repainted (drunk driver hit the rear few years back)... You'd never know they were repainted except for the lack of stone chips :)

Get it painted. When you pick it up, make sure it matches and if not, tell the body shop to redo it until it matches 100%.

I used to worry about having the perfect /original factory paint but at this point obviously it doesn't matter... Just go out and drive the car and enjoy it :wroom:

The car is original paint. It will never match right.
I don't understand this because even if you get a silverstone fender from a car, it won't match your car... paint fades in time and a car from a different climate that was treated different will fade differently and look different. It will never be an exact match. Sorry to say since it looks like its what your trying to avoid, but painting and blending is the only way to ensure a proper match
