They are pretty bad. Looks like some one patched them before. Maybe a mig welder? Not a braze for sure. Its steel. I am not sure I can pull this of by brazing it? Anyone fixed any this bad before? Cut and patch with new metal? Buy new fenders :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've got one extra non script fender in pretty good shape if you want it? Only has minor surface rust. No obvious bondo, welds, or patches.

Email is open.

I can send you pictures if you want em?

Might be time to learn fiberglass body repair, Sean.

It looks like you need a Mig for that and some patch material,plus several hours cutting out the bad and fitting in new pieces.I dont know about brazing it.Maybe brazing would work,but I would get a mig,or get somebody with a Mig to fix it if they would for a decent price.

While you may be able to its not worth it in my book. There are decent fenders all the time on ebay and non-script go for 50.00 or less frequently

The fenders on my 1939 9N were pretty bad. I had my FIL use a MIG welder and weld the splits and I welded a patch in place over the big hole:

I have a set of skins I pulled off Rustbucket, my 1954 NAA I refirbished, that look a lot like your set. I removed the supports and there was rust through everywhere. Just because I really enjoy trying to repair what most will throw away, me and my FIL spent two weekends welding, grinding, welding again, grinding again, repeat - but had very limited results. The metal is just too thin and burns through, and when you grind the welds down flush it is too thin. We finally threw in the towel and decided if we wanted to repair it we would have to weld patches in place like the pic above.

I would say save yourself the heartache and try to find replacements on those.

Thats rust. I hauled this one home from the Texas gulf coast. It has strips of metal welded on the back under the mounting brackets. They did a fair job. It is just rusting out again. Looks like the work of a mig. I did some brazing. I am now starting to think I need to cut it out and patch in some metal. May rent a mig...May try brazing it. Fixing them is half the fun..

On second thought looks like a bad welder, weldor or weldee. Burnt a lotta holes? David.
