Got the fender off, Dents beaten out and then the imperfections filled with lead. Looking for any advice on what steps to take in the prep work....and then what type of paint to use to match the original as far as depth and shine. Carl had mentioned he had good luck with acrylic enamel....so thats what i'm leaning toward. Thanks.....Louiepost-12279-0-25534400-1370227498_thumb.jpost-12279-0-37187800-1370227546_thumb.j

wow !that was a pretty good crease in the fender, did a nice job banging it out, lead ....what is that ,but that the correct way to do it, I used to do lead work in the electic utility industry,mostly wipeing up to 7'' lead sleeve, after I retired they stopped doing lead work ,all crimps and shrinks now.
