Wheel Well Covers
New wheel wells were fabricated to replace the previous wells. They were severely damaged in the dismantling process.
Wheel well covers are used to encapsulate insulation placed between the outside and inside wells.
The wheel well covers were originally constructed of a thin gauge galvanized steel and were coated with several coats of paint.
Minor repairs and sanding was all that was needed to ready them for reinstallation.
The angle grinder with 80 grit sand paper did the trick.
New 2 1/4 batt insulation was installed between the outer and inner wells.
The wells were screwed to the floor and riveted to the sidewalls to hold them into place.
After several small details were completed it was time to think about paint!
