    I'm glad I have low standards or I'd still be trying to smooth this out.

        Thanks. It's a pretty beat fender, so I don't feel so bad about attempting a ham fisted repair on it.

          It looks good in the pic! Doesn't look "ham fisted" at all to me.

          • Not much done, got the second Moderna and felt a little sick with a sore arm for a couple of days. First shot was a breeze. I've also got a bunch of poison oak to spray and weeds to whack.

            I did install the right grille, so now it doesn't look like a cyclops anymore. Actually, it ended up not looking half bad.

            The color hides a lot of mistakes.

            The lower trim piece was about 1/2" away from the fender lip, probably due to the whiskey dent. So I just made a simple "Z" bracket that took at least an hour of fettling with.

            I need a better front bumper, but this one will have to do for now.

            I need to swap the fender light indicator to the higher 62 type and then I can install the headlamp ring.

            • I thought this was to be a "Half A$$ed build", your work is too good for that.
