11-27-2011 09:49 PM Inner fender brackets 2
Some weekends even though I spend full two days in the garage it still doesn't seem like I accomplished much. I finished up the inner fender brackets, sand blasted them (as well as a few other parts) and painted them, installed my doors, added more braces up front to the chassis (something I was thinking about that I should have done sooner) I like the result of adding these as it'll help support the lower control arm, but, as my neighbor pointed out this is smack dab in the way of where my anti sway bar will go. I'll have to ditch the one from my DSE kit and go with a different style that locates lower. I also spent some time thinking about my cage and exhaust and made a couple of rough sketches. Too rough to post, so I'll make new (presentable) ones and post them later.

A couple more views of the inside of the inner pass fender.

I also started on those inner fender brackets. Fortunately, those don't need a lot of fabricating. I'll be removing the pressed in nuts on the brackets and relocating them to the flange on the firewall as the bracket will be located on the inner side of that now. Also, only 2 of the bolt holes line up now so I'll turn it into an opportunity to trim them down.

I finished up the inner passenger fender this weekend. Added the outer section. I had to adjust my flange to remove a gap. I also added the inner panel around the suspension.

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.
