Still waiting on a couple fuel system parts, so I started fender removal and continued paint removal.... pictures

so a brief tutorial
see all the gooey stuff? that's what glues the panels on
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

first step is to heat and chisel the sealer out between the upper and lower panel

I got very lucky on the front because the fender started to detach as I was removing the seam

on the back, not so much, I'm not sure this fender will be reuseable when it's off.... fortunately, this fender had prior, poorly-fixed damage so it's loss isn't that big of deal

I think I'm going to do a video of the other side, there's very few youtube videos that show the soup to nuts of taking these fenders off.... it's not that hard, but it is a bit fiddlyedited

Are you planning to shorten the cust. img. spoiler a bit, or is just a quick mockup with some overlap?

My thoughts are is that it looks better shortened up a bit.

that's just a quick mock up. Custom Images suggests weaving the two together by using the bumper bump as the common point. That said, I seriously don't know, I've never done this before so it's mostly just trying to make it fit. It won't have a bumper on the back.

parts arrived

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

now the line runs well from the regulator
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

they're easy to assemble - or at least easier then typical braided fuel line
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I am going to either buy another fitting or get creative back here because I don't think there's enough line to make a 90 into the pump....edited

time for flares

add heat
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and pop, off it comes
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and the new sitting in place
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

time for an executive decision on where to splice this together
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

chop chop
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

The CIC flares don't wrap all the way under, nor does it maintain this edge - even if I fill it, I want the strength so here's what I did
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and pop, off it comes
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

rough cut
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

seems to be going the right direction
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I plan on filming a YouTube video of the second side when I do it, but here's the comparison to 'before'
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

now you can really see how much extra flare there is
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and the back, again
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

a picture of how much of the back is bonded
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I think I want the flares bonded in place before I finish the fuel system, which isn't a huge deal because it's really not going to be driveable for a bit longer
