Thanks! The wings are off an original Ford MotoMeter that was given to me, I just put the Ratfink in place of the meter. - sometimes things just come together like that.

Aw, don't be so modest. Y'all planned it that way. Sometimes I think the designs are in your head and you might not even know it.

Diving into the last big fabrication job, making front fenders. A little more complex than the rears as I have to allow clearance on the inside for turning and since the whole fender is visible, they gotta be somewhat purty... Down to my last sheet of 18ga., so its gotta go right on the first try

Front fenders look great so far, ZZ. 😎😎
I just bit the bullet and ordered a 4x8 sheet of 18 gauge.
My local shop called 5 places to get the best price. $160. Same as i paid for the last sheet i bought.
2 places didn't even have any and a two other were coming in at well over $225.
Time for Torchie to
get back to work on the Dodge Custom.

Wow! I paid $164 Canadian each including taxes (about $125 US) for the last 4x8 sheets I bought and I thought it was a lot - now I feel better (but sorry for you...)
I won't even mention what I paid for the brass trim except to say doing it in stainless would have been about half the price...

Got the inside panels made and tacked in place - this is the second go round - first ones turned into scrap I wasn't paying close enough attention to the alignment of the fenders when I made the templates, so once they were tacked in place the fenders were all twisted and looked like crap - gotta smarten up in the R&D Department
Now just a bunch of welding and grinding then mounting.
