Ok, I started sanding the front fender ,and I decided to remove the mounting brackets from it.
The main reason,is because they had old paint around them,and it's hard to sand around them,and they have a touch of rust,so I'll paint them,as well.
First,Drill the heads off from the rivets,from the outside .
As the head falls free,you will see a shouldered spacer. there are 6,in all.
DON"T LOSE THEM!! Keep the washers,on the reverse side,as well,and remove them from the rivet shaft.
Do the sanding,on the fender. I use a Lawn tractor inner tube,or,even an old 15" tire to support it,while sanding or painting. It keeps the fender steady.
In the last pic,you can see the moulding button,on the top/center of the fender.
I'll clean it up,and use the ABS "slurry" to round it,and then sand it smooth.Much better than body filler.
