Got things just about wrapped up and I'm almost ready to install the replacement fender. Got the fan housing patch panel welded in and painted. Replaced the RF shock and cleaned up a couple pounds of country road dirt while I was at it. The fender got some paint up front (blue around the headlights and flat black below the splash pan) in areas that will be hidden after assembly. I also installed the turn signal housing, checked its electrical connections and ground and removed some old factory rust proofing as well. The rest of fender will remain unpainted until after leading is done later this year.
