So I decided to fix the fender...

Yep, you knew that was coming didn't you? In the end, I couldn't justify getting a different one. If this one was riddled with rust, then yes. If I had found one nearby, then yes. But no...
I cut all the bad parts out of this one and hammered out the dents that had been filled with body filler. It is pretty straight now and I rebuilt the whole hood hinge area. When the car was fixed back in Texas, they also didn't weld the hinge support in completely. If the guy who did these repairs, checks out this blog one day.... Thanks buddy!!! It made it easier to get the thing lose not having it properly attached in the first place.
