While I was trying to work on my front fenders they would keep moving and sliding around which made it hard to work on. I made these fixtures to hold my bed sides when I was working on them. While my bed is out to the painters and my cab is on jack stands I thought I would use my cab dolly to build a fixture to hold my front fenders to work on them. It is screwed together so that I can change it back when I’m done.

I had my furnace serviced the other day and we found that the box that transitions the fire box to the flue pipe was rusted out. I took some sheet steel and made a box to replace the old one. I’m glad that I bought those shrinker and stretcher you never know when you may need them.

The ends of the fenders where they mount to the running boards were all rusted out so I cut a piece of steel and shaped it to fit then welded it in place.

I’ll heat up and reroll the fender after I get every thing tacked in place. I grabbed up all my small clamps and started the spot welding. After I got it tacked I removed the clamps. If I have say so myself I think it doesn’t look all that bad.

I trimmed the patch panel back so that I would not have a strait seem. I then drilled holes in the patch panel for the fender brace to keep it aligned with the fender. Then I laid out the fender to cut it. I let the 3/16” rod run beyond the ends of the patch panel so I trimmed it back so it ran about an inch beyond the ends. When I trimmed the fender to fit the patch I cut the rod on the fender about an inch beyond where the patch will fit. I then took a pair of vise grips and wiggled the rod and pulled it out. This gave me a pocket to fit the patch’s rod to fit to align the two. I did the same thing to the other side, but I had to unroll the part on the fender to get the patch in place.
