Had another hour tonight to work on the bike, decided to mark up and chop the rear fender. I had picked up an old triumph fender on the cheap, marked up and then the good old angle grinder out!
There was then a load of holes on the fender from the old lights etc, from asking on here i had been told to grind back the chrome, then weld the holes up.
I also used the copper coin trick that was recommended, worked a treat!
Half hour later and all the holes were suitably welded up! Much fun!
had to then grind back the welds, and decided that as the fender will be painted i would key the whole thing back with the good old grinder!
