quick question-are the rear fender corners removable?

I've got rust where the rear corners meet the tub. are these rear corners removable via some bolts somewhere? i see replacements for sale so i assume they are, just want to make sure whether they are bolted on or welded

Anything is removable if you have the right tools. They are not bolted on, they are welded on with spot welds. A spot weld cutter in your drill will let you remove them for replacement.

I have the Blair Double-End Spotweld Cutter and it works really well.

I've found that if you center punch the spot weld, it makes it a lot easier to cut. The tool won't walk away as easy.
