The last time we saw the fender it was shedding 3 layers of ugly paint. Unfortunately the ugliness didn’t end there. Beneath that ugly paint was another unsightly mess. Apparently someone had done a poor job with a welder and a cheap patch panel and after many years the patch panel had rusted and needed some patching. The top of the fender just behind the headlight had seen better days as well. So naturally the only thing to do was start cutting holes.
