Sunday fun with a custom front fender
Updated: Jan 27, 2019
Being a private builder, most of the things I do happen on a Sunday. Now it was time building a custom front fender for my BMW. I´m gonna try finding the right bending angle for my custom fender mounts.
From paper to metal to cardboard. I got used to working with cardboard before spoiling metal when it comes to bending things. The cardboard will help me finding the angles.
First shot with cardboard. We´re heading into the right direction.
So, how does this fit and how will the angles translate into the metal parts? Let´s see...
Ok. The cardboard is talking to me. Thanks god I took this appraoch, I did expect different bending points!
First fitting with my new metal, custom made front fender mounts. A bit too high yet, but it is just a matter of adjustments. Am I happy?
I am. Fender ist sitting right in the middle. And if not, press left or right...
