Using some photos of a original metal snow flap I was able to make my reproduction as close as possible to an original. After test fitting it and then welding it in place, the snow flap is ready for paint. I also applied a temporary coat of primer to the front fender to see how smooth I was able to make the fender after hammer and dollying it. My next step is to assemble all the body parts to make sure it all fits properly and then disassemble it and take to the sandblasting yard to remove all the old paint, temporary primer and any surface rust (but that will be later this summer). In the meantime, I still have tracks to rebuild, skids to rebuild and many other small details to complete.
