      Anybody have tips on the best way to re attach the fenders to the toe
      board/floor due to rust out? It looks like some kind of gasket is in
      there, so how would they have welded it together?

        ========================
        Dave, mine were never
        rusted but they were
        separated at the seams,
        so I'd wondered about
        that, too. It's a
        strange piece of
        engineering - if you
        weld/braze it, it won't
        fit right and you could
        warp the lower front
        fender.

        What I did - and I'm
        sure there are better
        ways, but this worked
        for me - was to close
        apply black silicone
        caulking from the top
        (after first taping it
        from beneath to prevent
        dripping) and then
        finger-smoothing the
        bead. The rubber mat
        will then cover that
        seam.

        Yes, it is kind of odd, because you d think that if the gasket was installed, then the joint was welded together, the gasket would catch fire or roast... Dave.
