I found the cream/latte SKS fenders locally, but when I put them next to the cream/milk and coffe Bianchi the fenders looked somewhat pinkish in comparison.
I've been thinking about painting, but I've never seen a plastic component that has been painted where the paint does not crack overtime (although I don't know if the proper paint and preparation procedure was used in those cases).
I like some of the wood fenders on the third link, but I'm not sure how durable wood is. Also, those fenders are in the $150-$200 range, which I think is too much for the purpose a fender is built (i.e., get dirty, get hit by road grit and debris, etc.). So I'd rather go with a regular fender in the $30-$60 range.
