So much easier without a fender in the way

With the fender removed I got about strengthening the crappy welds at the top of the shock tower. I cleaned everything up and decided to bend a plate, using 16 gauge metal, to stiffen the whole area. I will weld everything as best as possible and then overlay my plate to help.
I found several fenders, used and new, but have not decided if I should just fix the one I have or not. It will cost a couple hundred including shipping, by the time I have something different to work with and am not sure that it is worth it. I'll let you know what I decide...
