More Hot Glue | ’67 1600-2 BUILD

I am nonetheless plugging away on the ’67 1600


I did not just like the fitment of the entrance pig cheek fenders, so I made a decision to mix them into the metallic entrance fenders. Sadly, my unique fenders had been rotted across the flip sign housing and rocker panel. The W&N alternative fender was okay, however didn’t match as properly because the OG. Then I had the genius concept of utilizing the W&N fender as a donor to deliver the unique as much as snuff.


I’m an actual beginner at welding and physique work, however I really feel like diving in is the easiest way for me to study. The fender appears actually Frankensteined, however I believe it’s lastly coming collectively. A number of trial and error to get it to the place it is at now. At one level the highest of the fender didn’t align with the belt line, so I needed to reduce and regulate. Now the whole lot appears to be becoming very near unique.


After I button up all of the welding, Im going to deal with the entire panel with some OSPHO, POR-15 the uncovered metallic, bond the flare to the fender, and wrap up the physique work with filler and sanding…a number of sanding.


Over and out,



Beneath: Tacking in a donor piece of the W&N fender onto the unique fender. Flip indicators match excellent now, I will make it look fairly later.



Beneath: I initially was going to connect the ahead nostril part of the OG fender to the W&N fender. I eighty-sixed that concept after coping with some high quality and fitment points I did not like. Someway I ended up reducing the OG fender in three completely different locations. 😒 All good, sizzling glue to the rescue. 



Beneath:  Pig cheek fitted to the fender. I am actually pleased with the match of the fender on the nostril panel and door hole.
