The third piece - 48 inches by 7 to 12 inches.

This thing is like a snake. Squeeze one side and the other side bulges. May be time to start over.

The second piece only took two attempts.

Boy, this metal work is harder than it looks. This is the third piece I've attempted to make fit this end of the fender. How many month's has it been since my last post? From pattern to fitted piece...countless hours.

Long time no see...wife decided we needed to remodel the kitchen.

Following the Ron Covell school of buck building, I've been building a wood frame to represent a mirror image of the passenger side fender. It's slow work, but a Harbor Freight band saw and a ***-rig spool sander help immensely.

Finished tacking in the flange. I think the gap will be fine with fender welt. I cannot thank Ron Covell enough. His workshop was a great confidence builder.
