Default Re: Type 3 VolksRod is my concept to fix the rear tire/wheel access and clearance issue. Cut a curved wedge out of the lower half of the fender in front of the wheel arch. Hammer form a filler panel that has a radius on the outside so that the lower rear portion of the fender blends into the filler panel. The inner forward edge of the filler panel meets the fender at close to a 90 degree angle. Kind of hard to explain.

This will move the lower rear of the fender out a couple of inches at the bottom giving me some clearance. It will also give me an additional bodyline detail that I can accent with the chrome trim.

Something like this......

Yes? No? Let me know what you think.
