Very nice work on the fenders! Looking forward to seeing them painted.

Once I took all the parts outside......you can see that the person who previously painted it actually took a grinder or a very coarse sanding disk to get the paint off......The fork & frame have a few "Grooves" on them.....
No big deal, just a little more sanding and primer work before paint.....

Yesterday afternoon, did a little sanding on all of the pieces.......they all needed a little spot putty.....

To most people this looks kinda like bondo......it's not.. The rear fender has a lot of pitting from rust, it's easier to use this than 10 coats of primer......it finds the low spots, and fills in the pitting...99% of it is sanded off....

After sanding the frame this morning, it showed a little more pitting itself, so I decided to putty it. I'll let it dry for a while, sand it down after lunch, and paint some more primer......

Must be time for another break........Cheers

Another hour of sanding & a few more coats of primer, the days activities have come to an end......
Tomorrow I'll start again early with a little finish sanding, and check for anymore "defects". If anymore putty is to be applied...I'll switch to the red stuff for some contrast when sanding......if none required, there should be paint on this stuff by tomorrow afternoon......

The hard part is now finished as of this AM........again, another "Satisfied Customer"..... (Me).....
The reflections in the paint tell the story...... Now I need to take the "Jewelry" down to the plating shop...... Next on the agenda is getting the stripes on it......

All of the parts are here......The bike is in great shape, other than the original front fender.....do dents or dings on the frame or fork......

IMG_1967.JPG


The rear fender is in remarkably great condition.....it has some indentation where the clip was attached....

IMG_1968 (002).JPG


And one tiny ding from inside of the fender, but that is it.....

IMG_1970 (002).JPG


The new front fender has a couple of issues, but nothing like my Twin Bar.....
A little dent where it hit the fork where it was attached....

IMG_1971 (002).JPG


A few little ripples towards the front, plus at the rivits.....

IMG_1972 (002).JPG

IMG_1973 (002).JPG


And then a bend on the front......

IMG_1965.JPG


But, one of the best things I've ever bought on here is this dolly for fenders......it will make this fix easy and short.....

Here we go......................................................
Oh I am loving that lovely piece of tooling.

Best purchase I ever made from here....I'll add to it....I also have a male/female set for a little smaller fender.....

The one on the right fits these balloon fenders perfectly.....

Wow! That's a perfect tool for the job. Way cheaper then a English wheel and I bet friendlier too. I know it works good, I've seen your work.
