welcome to the forum, raccooninblack. Someone here might have some to sell you, and you might also check on the 4wd tercel facebook group:

I've never understood how some provinces have vehicle inspections that fail you for having non-structural rust.

those fenders are the same for all Tercels, fwd and 4wd, sedan and wagons, from model year 1983 though 1986. and any wagon for the 1987 and 88 model years (the sedans changed design in '87). likey you will have to find good used ones.

there usually are shops in areas where they use salt that will cut out the rust, and form and weld in sheet metal to rebuild the rusted out metal parts. it is costly way to fix it, but if you can not find replacements, it may be a viable alternative.

Personally I would be tempted to just remove the rusted out fenders, and than get some sheet plastic and mount them in place instead of the metal fenders. Perhaps forming it a bit with a heat gun, and than run it back though the inspection. In the states there is no law that requires you to have factory replacement parts, especially for body parts.
