Hey guys haven't posted in a long time been neck deep busy but here are some 46 chevy pickup fenders that I fixed so lets get started. First things first this fender needs some patches but the whole fender needs to be smoothed out fairly well before the patches can be welded in because you think about it all the dents take up some surface area so you can't really weld in pieces and planish them then hope the rest of the fender will come around. Smoothing with the planishing hammer with a delrin lower die so it will just squash the imperfections in the surface without stretching everything all out of wack. I like to use a planishing hammer die that is half the radius of the part that I am working when just roughing out. More smoothing and just cleaned up with a clean and strip disc just about ready to make some patches. Usually if I have a small patch right next to a edge I will pre stretch the new piece and the original metal in problem areas so they planish out nice after its all welded and always remember to round the corners of your patch to reduce the amount of shrinkage, sharp corners get shrunk when you change direction where a rounded corner shrinks alot less.
