Well I decided that I'd cut off the front of the car and make new seperate front fenders like "normal" cars have. I have some good origonal VW fenders ( the fenders that bolt on) and I'll be making the rest new front fenders, haven't decided if I'll do them in glass or metal yet??? I'll also be able to widen the front of the car this way and the fenders will be one piece and make it a little cleaner looking

Here was my first cut and a little grinding. It looks like the car was in a wreak at some point and was pieced back together. The passender side fender had a new section rivited and bondo'd to about 1/2 of an org. fender, and the driver side finder had half a new fender rivited and bondo'd to about a 1/4 of the org. fender. Lots of body to, it was up to 3/4" thick in places!!!
