Decided to work on front fender while waiting for floor pan to arrive. This is the fender that took a hit at some point in its life. Front is punctured, wheel well arch is dented, metal toward rear has a rip in it 1/8" to 3/16" wide.

Here is the worst of it:

This proved to be difficult to work with because of limited access to the back side.
Working with a metal punch and modified screw driver I eventually got it into good enough shape to weld it. It will need to be skimmed with filler and finished shaped after I get the fender in epoxy.

There will be more work done once I can reinstall it and check fit.
Here is the the ripped metal at the back of the wheel well:

Cut out the floor pan enough to allow proper fitting of the new pan.
