Holden EJ – Fender
This fender belongs to an Holden EJ Ute.
Sometimes a clients budget needs to be staggered over time and we don’t always get to see the whole vehicle all at once.
This fender had some minor issues in the past which could have been repaired better by the other repairer. At first sight, the corrosion appeared to be concentrated at the lower rear section of the fender.
The fender was then sandblasted to remove the paint and corrosion contaminants.
After the blasting process, the fender was reassessed and we found that the upper rear section of the fender had a small concentration of corrosion perforations.
Rene created a pattern of the fender sections and then fabricated the complete external (rear section) and lower internal fenders sections.
The corroded internal & external fender sections were then cut out and the replicated panel sections were fuse welded in place.
This may seem to be an extreme approach, but at Auto Resto we warranty our rust repairs for 5 years. We are passionate about restoring vehicles and eliminating corrosion.
