Fender repair panel fitting This is a bit tedious

Fender repair panel fitting. This is a bit tedious, but critical, if I want to avoid using a ton of filler.

I had cut the rusted original fender section out

Lots of very time consuming cutting fitting wel

Lots of very time-consuming cutting, fitting & welding. Curves, on top line, are deliberate, to allow use of original side spear mounting holes, rather than have to try to drill them in the welds. Welds are mighty tough drilling!
