And then I went for it!!

Yep, I took the whole thing off, another first for me, but it was definitely worth it!! The hidden rust and sloppy repairs needed attention! I can cut and patch the fender I have but am searching out a new (or used, but straight) one instead. My biggest problem is my own patience. If I find another fender it might be weeks before I get it and I will have to find other things to do in the meantime. Maybe I should rebuild a transmission, or rear end...
Maybe I'll just take the gang to the beach tomorrow!!
Anyway, by the end of the day, I got things cleaned up a bit and cut away all the rusted bits that will need new metal behind the fender. That will take some time... But not weeks...
