The rear fenders needed to be welded to the backing plate that bolts to the body. The fender flare was tacked to the backing plate while it was mounted to the aluminum body. To minimize warpage, the fender was removed from the tub and T&J's fab tech tacked the plate to a steel bench and then finished the complete weld.
