I just thought I would post a few pictures of the fender lips. Most of the time the lip are ground off when the body is made, I like to build the lip back up to give a nice finish edge to the fender. First I use West epoxy and glass cloth to build the edge, then finish it off with body filler. Just one of those small details that pays off in the end. I'm sure this has been covered before but for those that are just starting there build I hope this helps.

Ron what is that plane made out of? I know about your process, just wondering what the base material is...

Eric I'm always trying to improve my body and paint work and when I painted Aarons cobra I noticed that the fender lips were NOT removed at the factory and after close inspection I too liked the way it looked so now I offer it to anyone interested.


Brian the pictuered plane is a mixture of wood, plastics, fiberglass and graphite. The Plane in the back ground of the #2 picture is mostly fiberglass.

Ron, That looks great - I see that my baby is in good hands!

When would you like to go to the paint shop to finalize the paint codes?

Rolling the edges on any and all fiberglass fenders is worth the effort, few will notice but most everyone will spot a glass fender on a street rod if it is'nt rolled. Looks great on the cobras too.
