    ther are holes in your fender. doesnt look very cool, unless the swiss cheese look is what you were after JK
    are you going to weld the pull holes?, and did you know you can get a replacement fender for around $100?
    i looks like you did a great job pulling the dent
    i want to see it after the hood is back on
    i am trying to get my hood and fenders lined up, without much success

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?
    doen't matter it NEEDS A BIGGER MOTOR

    well the only reason I'm painting my k5 is as a warm up project for my 1950 truck so I'm not that worried about replacing a fender, and it is more about the challenge of fixing this one.

    I want to have one of these little projects under my belt before I do the other one.

    I was just planning on soldering the holes closed cuz I don't have a mig welder.

    Tough spot... probably would of been easier to fix if you pulled the fender off and used some hammering and dollys, rather then pulling. Also I know some guess have really gotten good at welding a stick on and pulling that way. Much easier to just cut and grind the stick off then deal with holes. Just some other ideas for you to play with.
