I have removed the fender flares from my 40. The fender was cut and rivets were used to attach the flares. I need to find material with the little lip under the fender well to weld in and paint. Any leads or experience with this? Cruiser Corps has complete fenders for ~$250 each. I could cut out the needed material from that but seems like there might be a "patch" out there somewhere.?

Before and after pics attached.

I've had the 40 for around 30 years and I haven't been able to locate the PO to horse whip him for doing this. I finally got tired of looking at it.

Thanks....Rodney.

I've seen patch panels for cut out fenders, maybe Cool Cruisers of Texas?

I will be interested to see how these fit when you get them. My fenders are cut similar to yours @umpqua and I wasn’t sure if those patches were gonna be tall enough to bridge the gap. Keep us posted.

I ordered the patches just now. I'm in the process of moving so hopefully I will have these on soon. Might be sometime later this summer though. I'll come back here with pics/results.

Thanks again.
