Houston: We Have Fenders (and running boards)

Well, one fender and one running board. And they still need some final weld-up and smoothing out. But all the discussion and ideas from this thread have become reality Opinions on adding fenders to sedan delivery

Tomorrow it's onward to repeat all this on the driver's side...but for the moment I'm just celebrating getting this side done. All the details in my cboy-two journal for those who are gluttons for punishment: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...81&action=view

I do not think I have ever seen a real "cartoon" car before.

Looks pretty cool!

Things will be slowing down considerably in terms of visual progress once I get the driver's side fender/running board done. It's time to get back to body straightening...ugh. I HATE body straightening. Fill...sand...fill...sand...fill...sand...primer.. .sand...fill...sand...primer...sand.......

Give me a nice fabrication challenge ANY day. But sanding and straightening drives me bonkers. Now if I could just convince 454 Rattler that what he REALLY needs to do with his time is come over and lean into one of my sanding blocks.......

No, No, No Dewey.

I've got lots of experience with Rattle Cans and Black Primer.
Let me know when you're ready.

Just out of curiosity did you ever solve that "soot" problem with your welder? Obviously it is not affecting the quality of your work!

I still have some more "testing" to do but I'm tending to think it is something in the batch of sheet metal I bought to skin this car. That is where the soot really shows up the worst...when I'm welding on any one of those five sheets I got for this project. When I tack welded these new fenders (different sheet metal), for example, the soot situation was much less noticeable (although not totally - as you can detect in the picture(s) in the journal). Also, when I weld tubing the soot is much less apparent - providing I clean the metal pretty well before welding.

I'm not out of the woods quite yet on that whole issue...but slowly working my way to a resolution.
