Slowly but surely

Just about gave up on this one......
Well gradually the paint and polish is coming to an end but what a pain to sand and polish the underside of the front fenders. I thought the inside of the deck lid was going to do me in, but the underside of the front fenders has that beat. Not only too many sharp corners, but all the surfaces are curved to boot. Finally finished ONE.....not looking forward to the other one. I wonder how long that paint will last once it hits the road? The paint on the underside of the '33 still looks good after 20 years and 93,000 kms, but this is a different brand. This fender was missing a corner from metal fatigue, had the typical rust issues and had been flattened and beat up but came out nice in the end.

- It had better last more than several years....lol. My '33 has been on the road for 20 years and 93,000 kms and the paint still looks like new, although does have a few minor road rash marks.

- As long as you did the prep really well, the paint will last for several years.

Great before and after pics, Someone is a magician to make that fender way better than new . You probably will have no finger prints left by the time your done sanding and polishing . Too bad allot of your hard work be hidden underneath and not seen
