My replacement fender is going to need some work. The door to fender gap is awful, really tight at the bottom with the 3/16 gap at the top or if if I line up the bottom to 3/16's, leaves 1/2" or wider at the top. Likely I will add a rod or two of the same thickness to the wide area to bring it in.
Does anyone have any thoughts or alternatives before I start welding?
I thought about cutting the edge on the bottom, but then I would have to weld it up anyhow.
how about on the back side, is it important to weld the backside or just fill in with something like all-metal or short strand fiberglass?
