Here are a couple of pictures.  First, the first repair I cut out and set on the fender.  I'm not really sure how I buggered it all up, but I'm doing my damnedest to get it lined up.  PAIN IN THE ASS!

Here is the first cut of the new repair.  I still have to fold the fender lip along the green lines that you see on the side.

I'll spend some more time fitting and sorting tomorrow!

 

Until next time...

The fender lines up now with some modifications to the fender and the way it mounts.  When I fixed the rusty fender frame, I think I changed the shape and length of it.  The backside looks rather rough, but it's solid and it fits!  You can't see that part anyhow when it's all painted!  I'm working on the body work now and will post pics of that later.

Even though I feel like it was a step back, I'm finally moving forward again!
