Welder did a super job, now way the fenders can move now.

This morning I riped off most of the rotten wood.

Moved the license plate hanger and light to the fender from the very rear where it hit the ground.

Too hot for any more today. Will finish riping off the wood then hit with a wire wheel and paint all with rustolum black then replace the wood.

Oh yea picked up a spare rim and wheel yesterday as well. $40 at the junk yard and he mounted it as well.

Waiting on a J hitch part from J C Whitney and I am good to go. Next week sometime I supose.

Only serious work left is pull eng and tranny and replace oil pump.

Wife came out to see my progress and said, you know it needs hub caps, I said Baby Moons, she said yea.

hehe, Miss Agatha going to be some classy act chaseing the truck down the road.

Old lumber off. Found that my big cutters work just great on the bolts, snip snip. Easier than I thought.

Had the big cutters on my sail boat for years just in case. Kept the tools when the boat went of course, tools is tools.

My little MG trailer? After about 4 years of continuous use, she's ready for a repaint & needs a dented fender repaired (Jack, if you loan it, it will come back dented!)

Seriously, since I outfitted her for our long Alaska trip, I've not done anything else to her, though I do want to add a front to it to protect the car a little more:
