A laser makes it easier for sure. I need to get a brighter one than the el cheapo one I use from Aldi!

Hehe, I've got a Bosch laser, and I've sometimes had to turn off all the lights in the workshop before now, just to see it better!

Doing a test fit of the Biederman fender....



Was going to do a little bit of touch up on the front weld seam, needs more shape..
The fender spans about 53" at the bottom, where it wouldn't fit in the wheeling machine sitting on the floor. We added a lift kit under the legs, except for one which needed to be open under the leg..



in process....

Needed to wrap the wire edge....



Note the genuine John Deere anvil...



The flange was hammered over using various hammers and dollies (anvils) with the final wrap tightened up with a pair of vise grips modified with smooth jaws...

The rear flange for the Biederman fender is cut out of some 12 gauge steel and tacked in place..







This flange bolts to the front of the running board..



The front mounting flange is cut out of 12 gauge steel and tacked in place..





This flange bolts to the filler panel behind the front bumper.





With them tacked in place, we'll do one more test fit and then finish the welds.

Looking good Robert.
Can see why they rust out there as would be prime dirt collectors.

Sure enough Marcus, quite a design flaw. The flange on either end has been long gone, although we did have some pieces left as the bolt was still holding the bits to the running board. After welding we'll media blast and get the inside corners flooded in epoxy primer..

Test fit the Biederman front fender to insure we had no clearance issues..

Rear flange to running board:





Front flange to bumper filler panel:







Looks like we're ready to finish welding...

Did you decide how you were going to fix the hood alignment problem?
