That BiG angle iron is from at least 10 yrs ago, the 5/8 x 6 snow plow blade is last winter and the bent fork lift extension is fresh

Where'd you buy that roller, and what's the motor you're using for it?

there was one spot that when the fender was all bolted up just didn't look right, it had some of a crown to it.....so its time to address it, I am not looking for perfection in the body work but if you can see something that's not right then you need to fix it.

the crown is hard to see but is in the first 2" of the seam and is from welding I think I didn't grind it down enough at first



so grind it down, it must have been from one of the first welding tacks when I was repairing it







just a quick rough sanding to see if I got it right
