How hard is it to get the fender off? Is it a bunch of spot welds or a seam weld?

I'm debating doing this on my project.

It has spot weld and some rubber sealer. The area next to the windshield bottom A pillar might be difficult to remove. Are you reusing your fenders?

I am replacing my fenders because of too much rust.

Thank you, sir. I may reuse my fenders, but my main goal is to get rid of the rust and lousy seam sealer between the fender and the door jamb. I may try to treat it in place, or I may take the fender off. I also have to get a lot of undercoating off...

It's only about 6 million spot-welds.... Or at least, it seems like it when you're drilling/cutting them out!

Thanks, Dave. I did the firewall and the floor pan, and those have a boat load of spot welds. I'm not sure what my appetite is for drilling out more of them in hard to reach places

The seam sealer and coating can be removed from the front fenders with them in place but it's a real job. Only slightly easier than the rears. I've got what appears to be decent front fenders on my '76 parts car. PM me if either of you guys are interested in those. I'd really like to see more of that car go to someone's restoration.

I'm good. 6 million spotwelds is about right.

Hey Glademeister,

Great offer. I'll let you know what I end up doing. I'm in the process of finishing the underside (new floor pan, firewall, and longs) but I'll turn to those fenders before long.

Thank you, sir. I hope the AX season is shaping up for you...

My 914 has two tires made in the German Democratic Republic. Just some car history.

So, how do you know if your 914 longitudinals have too much rust?

Step 1: Grab the seat belt
Step 2: Pull it real hard
Step 3: If it looks like the picture below, the your 914 is VERY rusty!!!
