broke my fist bolt...

... and my 2nd, 3rd and 4th!

Up to today, I've been pleasantly surprised at how easily the nuts & bolts on a 27 year old car could yield to a wrench and a bit of penetrating oil. (Thanks to not being winter driven.)

But this fender did not want to come off easily!

Unfortunately, I found more future welding work hidden beneath it...
