Doing some custom fender flares?

Impressive work. It inspires me to think mine might be worth the time.

It is not going to be custom fender, it has to be redone, because of rust. It is original fenders just put in there. This car will be as original, as it came out of the factory in Stuttgart in 1975.

another visit in the body shop looks like that:

I also saw the very color, that will be on my car, the same, as it was on the original car - 922 pastel blue, for the start it was on the verso of the front fender

looking forward to your reaction...
