    Bolt fenders together with aid of a stand
    lay tape down symmetrically to make profile patterns to.
    make profile patterns
    compare to each side.

  9. Always like your threads. Getting ready to start working on my passenger side front fender for my Model A. So I am subscribed.
     
  10. I love seeing your posts. You, sir, are a true craftsman.
     
  11. As always, I'm just flabbergasted at your skills. Time to put my big boy pants on and give it a try on my own roached out fenders. Thank you for the excellent examples and encouragement.

    In this pic you are just checking the radius/shape and then cutting the new patch out to insert INTO the hole without any type of overlap correct?

    --sorry cant quite get the multiquote thing right
