Torchie, any time you guys are teaching me some 'hotrod building', or telling a good story, you're not hijacking my thread. Anyhow, I didn't do any welding today. I worked on replacing a spring hanger, loaded a tractor engine to take to a friend, and plowed snow. We aren't getting spring yet.
Oh, and I test fit that fender again and drew some more marker lines on it.

I agree, and brazing or stick welding tears leaves great character scars

my motto is, if it flaps, or chatters, it gets fixed.

I like all of your advice, guys. Mostly I was fixing things to learn more about tin bashing. There was an old, four inch, hay wire weld on the drivers fender that didn't look that bad, and had character, but I had to fiddle with it. Now it has a different character. I welded up the bullet holes because they really bug me, not so much the holes but the jerk who put them there. I'd like to weld his trigger finger to any other finger.
Anyhow, I fought with the passenger side spring hanger but finally got it rebuilt. pic one.
The passenger side fender is off now. pic two.

Progress is a good thing.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
