  Today after work I installed the mud dividers, tested the fender fit, and also installed the rubber gasketing. I also hit it with another coat, and the screws of undercoating. Painting will come later. Next, is to fit the front with the rubber gasketing, and hit that with undercoating, and painting. Probally will wait for the painting when I finish the fenders. So, today spent a few hours on this part. Here's some pictures....

  Today was a nice day. Not too hot, no rain. I desided to re-do the rubber on the mud dividers before I move on to the rubber on the front wall... Glad I did. Looks real nice and the fenders fit perfect... Used self drilling screws. Originally, they used staples, kinda like hog rings, but a litle thinner... So, this idea worked out good. Had to use washers and pre cut the hole on both the wall and the rubber. I used bicycle inner tubes to make them. They came out well, and contour good to the fender.

  After, cleaned out of drilling peices, brushed out good, I sprayed with undercoat, and then hit it with Rust O leum gloss black. Looks good and is highly functional. Now, it's on to the fenders. I have to sand-grind away all the bondo. There is some. Dosen't look like it was hit. But, does look like they dondoed over the rusted areas instead of patching. So, this part isen't going to be that easy. Espically because I don't know the contour. I'll have to play it by eye.

  The support beam on the drivers side is almost gone down at the bottom. Some of the mounting area is there. I may be able to save that, Important because it's the measurements I need for a nice fit where the door goes, and that's where one screw is. So, still, I have to use my eye ball. The other side for guidance in this area. So, here's todays pictures.

  Today I tackeled the drivers fender. I am not finished yet. Still need to patch and shape. These are bad, but not too bad that they can't be saved. There was a lot of bondo on the fenders, at the bottom. I had to remove all of it, and patch the support beam, and make a plate to fit for patching.

  The contour, of the fender in this area is a simple in/out, but, matching it to the doors contour is a little rough. It's off slightly, but I think I can work it to match. If not, thats what it is... Next time will determin if I can do some more shaping of the bottom metal. Working this week. So, the fender will have to wait until I can get to it.... Here's some pictures of todays progress.

  Cut out the bad, rusted metal. Clean up, and try to get in as far as possible to clear the rust. Clean out the seam also. Using a 3 inch air cutter is good for this kind of work but can't get inbetween places too good.

  Found a area that was rivited patch, and bondo right over it. They did this probally because there was no support in the back and had to make it ridgid.
