LH Fender / Inner Fender Review

A sharp contrast between the origins and the final product & the craftsmanship of our own +Matthew Prendergast  is illustrated by the photos. You will notice in the pictures before the modifications the awkward panel fitment of the inner fender. The body line on the hood curtain has also migrated to the inner fender to provide more clearance to the fender, avoiding scratches etc. The fit & finish of the metalwork speak for it's self in these photos. 
More on the development of the inner fender using industrial styling clay can be read about in previous posts:

The '37 Ford Pickup is coming along with a lot of progress on the cab floor and seat frame / base. Getting a flat sheet to lie flat again after drawing material into the stampings without "oil canning" or puckering is a difficult task of deciphering what needs to shrink or stretch; This was completed by our own talented Lee Stevens.

A pictorial review of the development of the RH fender of the 1937 Ford Pickup. Damage to the top of the fender was repaired with a patch, as well the entire perimeter of the fender. The entire outer edge was hand built with some modification to the profile which were continued into the grill. The inner edge flange was moved outward to allow the inner fender to fit more naturally with the adjacent panels. Watch for more on the development of the inner fender & the clay buck used to accomplish this in the future.

A glance at some of the in progress shots of the '37 Ford pickup that Currus Metalworks is currently working on. Timelessly styling with traditional flathead V8 motivation are the goals of the ride. The body will appear stock with couple of subtly tasteful and functional modifications.
