Here's a pic of that template and my new flange tacked into place.

After missing a weekend as I stayed in Vegas after SEMA this weekend I was able to cut the flange off the passenger fender and weld up the inner wall, as well as cut out a new flange and get that tacked into place. I made a template off the driver side so I could reasonably match it up. I'll then build the outer half of the inner fender to match it.

I got a day in this weekend to work on refining the inner half of my passenger wheel well. It took some pounding, some slicing, more pounding, etc. I also made the recessed area in front for the hoop supports. It's starting to look reasonably close...

Still building the passenger inner fender. Making it symmetrical, by hand, is time consuming. It's still not symmetrical. I can still see major differences. It's not too late to make templates. I still have a lot of work to do....

So I'm now working on the passenger side. I've had a little time the other weekend, this one, and possibly a little over the next couple.

I started by building this the same way I built the driver side and my goal is to make it close. These were never truly symmetrical from the factory (frame rails are asymmetrical, driver side has steering and brake components, etc). I suppose I could make templates of the driver side and mirror them for the pass side, but I didn't.
