Welcome to the site
Now I'm old and easily confused, but was it you or someone else that had a thread about this, a week ago. If not on my Terraplane the fender braces also hold the headlight buckets, which are pretty heavy. Therefore if you don't want the rivets, you could weld bolts to the underside of the fender, do a little at a time and let cool so you don't get waves in the fender. That would be the only way if they also support the headlight buckets. unless someone knows of another way, which i'm sure someone might.
