Great to see some progress. Keep it going. That tyre carrier should never let you down. Haha. I need to install one on the F250 also. Not sure what I will steal one off yet.


It came up on FaceCloth and couldn’t resist it.

Well took the fender/wing/mudguard/guard off and found where the rust was hiding!

Has been professionally repaired in the past, but might need a little more work.

Although must admit, I knew the rust was there when I purchased.
The other side is fine.

First thing you should buy is a set of decent axle stands.

What you're using is patently unsafe.

Being crushed by a Bedford isn't a pleasant way to die.

Totally agree!
I didn’t, at any stage work under there whilst on the timbers.
Just lifted it to be able to pressure wash.

Nice straight forward rust repai in front of you. Could I suggest that when you start cutting out the cancer and welding in the new that you weld both sides especially where that overlap is on the mid section of the inner mudguard.

Looks a bit of a mess, but as you say Cobbadog, fairly straight forward.
Yes, will definitely weld both sides of the overlap.
