Tool box's original condition. Instead of letting us repair it, the customer said ship the box to another shop
Our repair included cutting away the damaged section, welding new metal in its place, and smoothing it all down so the repair is undetectable
Front & Rear Fenders from a
1957 Harley- Davidson Sportster
Extensive amounts of putty & thick paint hid years of "repairs" and modifications done to these fenders. The rear fender was in particularly bad shape & required removal & replacement of the damaged area and welding in of an underside support section.
Because of the extensive damage, this was a labor intensive, 3-layer process of putty, sand, prime ~ putty, sand, prime ~ putty, sand and prime.
