Hi everyone!

 

Thought I'd share a recent job that I completed for a customer. 

A little while ago he invited me over to check out his project.  As a guy who loves doing his own work on his ride, he's doing a great job making some serious changes to a '40 Ford Coupe.   However, when it came to the rear fenders he was initially looking at repairing all the cracks and rust in the originals ... then modifying them to suit the new lines on the car.

I suggested to him that in the time it takes to repair and modify the originals I can hammer out a new set for him.

 

Work began by first cutting out full size plus a little extra blanks from a sheet of steel.  Starting with the driver's side I started forming the flat sheet into a basic shape using the wheel.

With the basic shape formed, tucks were created around the edge that meets the body to begin the shrinking process.

After working out the tucks by hand(pheu... what a workout), the wheel was used to smooth any small surface deviations while creating the reverse curve on the area that meets the body.  Time to start trimming away excess material.

Now to finish up rolling the wheel arch, edges and bolt flange before starting the other fender. With these fenders, the running board mates on the vertical rather than on the horizontal like the originals.  This was done for a cleaner appearance. The wheel arch also has an added feature above the opening.

Both fenders done and ready to be picked up.
