    That looks like a lot of work. No fun working on antique metal.

    I have to give you credit for saving the old fenders, I got sick of it and went with new on the rear, but using as much of the original as possible is better IMO.

    Nice work on the fender!!

    A lot of work, I eliminated the spare tire well on the front fender of my 37 Dodge, and probably had less than 1/2 the welding you are doing. I was lucky, AZ truck so the metal was still solid.

    The rust worm had its fill. This is the lower rear of the rear fender, going to be a lot of work no patch panel for this

    Oh my that is a mess. Some of my fenders were hammered on and stretched so much I don't know how I could find the original shape again. Also lots of stress cracks in the thin old metal. Good luck with that, it should be challenging.
