Fender body work
#1
O.K. you body people, mechanic trying to learn. After sanding my fender I see where the horizontal lip that bolts the fender down is in need of new metal along the top and down about an inch. QUESTION Do I
A. Blast all the rust out and weld the new metal to the inside of the fender.
B. Cut out the bad and weld in the new metal which would require copying the holes?
C. Weld a new piece over the old and drill out the holes.
D. Buy a new fender

Want to do it right

great video You Rock every time I watch one of your vids I learn something. I see a lot of how to vids online but yours are short and to the point. Nice and simple. Keep them coming. I am sure I am not the only one who appreciates them. U Da Man!
