    Time for fender welting on the rear fenders.
    Start by spreading a thin layer of weatherstrip adhesive on the fender lip.

    Lay out welt and cut to approximate size. Run another thin layer of adhesive across the welt and adhere to straight run. Glue down and tapr to hold in place.

    Bend welt around curved section, and it will show you where to notch by buckling.

    Then glue and tape down.

    Now have someone hold the fender up for you and insert hardware..

    See how nice and finished the welt looks.

    Cut the welt even with the bottom of the bed.
