I painted the fender with the help of my son, Well he decided to take a wrench and try to remove the frame cover . Little man was grunting and surprisingly loosened 2 of the bolts while I was spraying the fender.

Started to tear it down today. I was disappointed that it took 20 minutes since the bolts were not seized or stripped

I was expecting it to be a 3-4 hr job lol.
But I guess it paid off finding a clean rig to start with.

The Ravens Won , I went outside to see what size the bolts are So I could see if my neighbor still had My sockets , Sawzall, and Grinder thst he borrowed the other day to work on his rig that I may have needed to use , He didn't have the size I needed so I tried to break one bolt free and it came out super easy so I tried the next one and you see the final outcome

I thought about it , but the black really tames the blue so it's not in your face then I won't need to touch them up from rock rash and brush scrapes.
