Your pictures are just not coming through. I use the 'Insert image' tab that you see at the far left of the text box, just under the Comment: label.It always seems to work for me.

Franken-Fenders, help.

Post by San Arthur »

After Jim worked with the fenders in the blasting cabinet we discover some led, copper and metal patches.
As I mentioned before poor Zenaida had a hard life.

Bondo is a magic think, isn´t it?

Image

Image

The hole is 3/8 thick, the patch makes the fender super heavy.


The welder and body worker did a great job hiding this.

Image

Image

Image

The front fender is to damaged to save, and rear fender lost it´s shape.

I decided to replace them instead of bondo my way out of it.

Image

Do you have an extra set? Please help me.

I think my fenders are beyond repair. I you have a better set, please PM me.

They have several layers of metal patches, in some places 3/8 thick.

Image

Image

Lead, copper and bondo was used to cover the metal patches.
