Fender Apron Repairs Page 2
The reproduction battery tray as it comes originally.
A small interference occurred in the right rear corner of the battery tray where it meets the fender apron.
A few small cuts relieves this interference. Pushing the metal back and welding it up again fixes this problem.
And now the new battery tray fits like it should.
This is a typical area of severe pitting that occured between the fender and the upper part of the fender apron.
We cut out the rusted area.
Make a cardboard template of the patch required.
Transfer that to a piece of scrap steel.
Prepare for welding.
Now the patch is welded in and the weld seam cleaned up.
Add a patch for the overlapping part of the rear apron.
Bend the outside flange down and we are done.
