I'm replacing my daughter’s 2005 Recon ES green plastics to yellow. About a month ago, got lucky and picked up a yellow front fender like new for $10 on Craigslist. Recently, I ordered the yellow side body covers (Starburst yellow) from Parzilla and just received them, but when I put them next to the yellow front cover it’s more of an orange yellow does not quite match. Are there different yellows? Is it normal for body plastics to quite not match?
My front fender is not sun faded it's like new.

There's different reds so wouldn't surprise me at all.

Maybe the front fender is aftermarket? Plastics fade as well, so new might not match used. I know one guy had ordered white plastics (new) from Partzilla and had a hell of a time getting them to match.

The front fender looks like it's a Honda part, everything swapped over perfectly and looked to be identical to the original green one. It also had the Honda sticker on the front, but never seen an aftermarket so can't be 100% sure.
Good to know someone else had a problem with matching.

There must be because when my fiancee's son wrecked her 2005 yellow Honda Rancher a few years ago, the replacement plastic we bought from an online Honda dealer was darker than the original yellow. Since this is used on the farm, she doesn't care that the new plastic and the surviving original plastic don't match.

Okay. Thanks.
I returned the non-matching Honda ones I bought from Partzilla. Found two used ones on eBay that match. For now the recon is yellow and green. The rear fender is still green. I like the color combination but my daughter does not. I will have to find a good used matching rear yellow fender for a reasonable price, may take same time.

I take it she's not a Packer fan?

Haha. No, She's a Pats fan, like me. My son also asked if I'm a Packers fan.
I thought it looked good until the Packers fan thing came up.
Sounds like I should find some yellow rear fenders that match or return it back to all green.
