been real busy the past month with moving and a new job (plus still dont have internet at my place LOL) but finally here are pics of the final product!! (paid $200 for a pro to paint the fender:
original estimate = $1400
my total cost = $320
+ = $1080 in pocket, experience learned, feeling of accomplishment
- = about 14 hours of labor, used puddy while autobody place would have welded on new metal
overall = I would do it again just how I did. That being said i would be hesitant to take on a job any bigger than the one I did.

door




fender



hope you guys liked my thread! and hope this helps any noob like me who wants to save some money on autobody

Hope your not referring to the rust remnants left on the fender rubber molding....

On the door there is something that looks like rust in the middle but that's just surface rust that formed on the unpainted part of what I sanded that formed once i took the car to the autobody place to get painted.... I through some por15 on the unpainted parts after

But congrats on trolling

Trolling? i was reffering to the door....and there is rust regardless if its surface rust or not, so in fact my comment was valid.

Looks pretty good, just one question

Did you put the rusted rubber strip back on the wheel well?!
