Rear fenders have successfully completed rehab and are back on the car. I filled the old gas filler hole in the left one, close up is of the piece I cut off the rear fender edges to sweep it back to give it a better flow with the other body lines.

I'm still amazed ZZ, thanks again for taking the time to post and describe your progress. It's much appreciated, and probably inspirational for more of us than you may possibly know! I'm still in awe of the pace of your build......maybe I need to get rid of that damn day job of mine....it's getting in my way!

Wow what a difference a little slice of fender makes! That wheel well looks so much better. Very nice lines. :cool:

ZZ, it's looking great.

I think you need a side by side for full effect.

Bonus is that it's easier to get the wheels on & off :)

Underside pic shows the fender braces I made today from 3/4" tubing, you can also see the gas tank mounted.
After pondering the location and mounting method for the Lincoln Zephyr tail lights for days, now that the fenders are on, I jumped in and got it done. Started with mount pads made from 1/8" plate, tacked in place with scrap rod. To get them straight and matching, I had a piece of 1" tube clamped to them across the body, made the angle to match the slope of the trunk lid. After snipping out a cardboard template, I transferred it to 18 ga. sheet and welded 'er up. Tomorrow the fenders come off again to cut out the underside that is covered by the new light pedestals.
