Default A little patch work

I had two big rust through spots on the fenders of my 40. Had a little time to get the fenders patched, and some rocker panel repair...

not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but WAY better than the huge cancer spots before...

Nice! I saw your fenders last week but decided not to ask about them!

Sascha, probably would have had better results with patches from your offer, but had the 16ga ready to go, so went with that. I think the bend I started with was a bit too big, and kind of flattenned out the fender radius as I welded it together. I could skin it with some bondo, but figure it is my fun trail rig, and, while wanting to keep it looking OK, I'm not trying to make this a show piece. A 20 foot truck is great by me.
