lots of welding and grinding, then discovering pinholes, and welding again, and grinding some more...

During the construction of this I put it in the car a few times to ensure it still fits. I also removed sections at a time on the bottom to help make sure the fender keeps it shape.

Looks like some beat up medieval knight costume...

It's gonna be fun mirroring this for the passenger side.

I put in some time this weekend on my front fenders. Well, one of them, and only half of it. And I started it last weekend. I'm rebuilding them to accommodate the larger wheels I plan to use. I really had to get old school on these as I don't have an english wheel, a shrinker/ stretcher, or a gas welder. I don't even have a pellet bag. So I wrapped up an old bed sheet and got the hammers out. I started to build it in one piece, but that wasn't working so I cut it into sections and was able to rebuild the inner half. I may have to notch it to make more room for my master cylinder, but I'll deal with that when I have to.

These pics show the template I made (it pays to save the boxes from home groceries) and getting started.

I drilled a hole 3" down on the clutch lever and was able to bend the bracket to line up the cylinder. I trimmed the removable threaded end of the cylinder to fit, and cut out a new piece for my firewall.

I also added a bracket on the side with an adjustable bolt and jam nut to act as a stopper for the clutch pedal. This will help prevent over pushing the clutch cylinder.
