Off come the flares

So after gathering all the parts it was time to start the bodywork. Off come the flares. It is amazing what passes for bodywork in some places. The flares and body had enough Bondo to fill a bathtub. One door had a dent that was just filled with an inch of Bondo. Unbelievable!!

The good news is that there was very little rust lurking under the flares and all that Bondo.

Why pull out a dent when you can fill it with 3/8 inch of Bondo?!

Whoooaaah. That's allot of bondo. And whats the point of adding flares if you're not actually going to cut the fenders??? Defeats the purpose.

Yesh, I can't believe that didn't crack!

 

If you go flares back on, you don't need to cut the panels to put them on.  Keep the fenders stronger, I say!
