Everything had been aligned and adjusted properly, so we started to weld the front end of our Mini together. We’d purchased a new left front fender, but we chose to reuse the original right front fender. Initially, this original fender seemed to be in great shape. Under closer examination, however, we found it needed some work.

There was a hole where an antenna had been and a bit of rust starting in a couple of the corners. This would take a few hours of welding and patch panel fabrication to make it right, but this wasn’t a major ordeal.

This work is much easier to do prior to welding the fender to the body, so our front-end final reassembly would have to wait.

It was an itsy bitsy, teeny-weeny rally-winning project Mini. Subscribe to Classic Motorsports and get them in your mailbox.
