Awesome work! I'm in the process of replacing that section myself. Recreating the fender mount area looks much easier your way!

I'm not sure your Bonneville and my Catalina would be the same but I'd love to look at the information you have. That area on my Catalina was all but gone so I was doing my best to guess what was missing. I'll be posting some pics shortly. I still have the driver's side to do at some point and I'm sure your info will help.

No problem, the fender brackets on the 4-door and 2-door are identical.
I sent you the dimensions and photos.

Thanks for the compliment.
I prefer to post the pictures of the progress. Because I do not speak your language well.
I try to do the best possible, but I'm not a professional. So my methods are not always the best.
I share this reconstruction with pleasure and if I can inform you, it will be with great pleasure.

The news...

The work is progressing well, I would like to devote more time. But the little family and my job take me a lot of time.
The pictures explain much better than me.


The right side:







l]


























































































Left side :





































































The rear:



Here I am at the beginning of the work, because I could not find an interesting solution to fix the body on the pivoting support.

I made openings on the back skirt, this will only be two extra holes to close. But it is a very advantageous solution for the rest of the work.

The work progresses smoothly, but the result is correct. I spend a lot of time to reproduce identical to those of origin.

Sorry, I post a lot of photos because my language is not very correct.
The pictures are worth a thousand words.

Hello! I love to watch the photos of your bodywork, it is a fantastic work you are doing. I know how much time it takes to do it right, and your photos inspire me to improve my working methods, although I dont think that I can ever reach your level. Keep up the good work, I really enjoy watching it!
