my $.02:
you can try too do the used metal to used metal patch job but you will likely end up buying a new fender ($200?) or go get one from a yard....

1979 vintage fender sheet metal is not likely "in good shape" for temper strength to stand up to welding...

cost of the panel bond adhesive/fillers/epoxy/etc/etc is not far from the new fender price (and you will need to find a free loaner adhesive gun because they are $100+)....

???if it's a damage repair,,,ask at a local body shop how much to pull it back out...
