could just be moisture buildup over winter months. Same thing happened to mine. I wasn't burning or leaking fluid into oil. It was just around the cap. Condensation sometimes gets in there.

ROFL dude your my boy but no way I would sell anyone 2 year old OEM fenders for $50 for a set!!!!!!!!!!!

they are from Cross Canada and were $160 for the set, so I'll give them to you for $50, if they were OEM at almost $300 each new, then we would be talkin alot more!!!

no presure, just remembered how bad they were and though I would pass them along
