I have a 72 that I'm messing around with. Question I have is, where the lower part of the fender bolts to, which is the one closest to the rocker panel its all rotted out.. No where to bolt the fender to.. How would I go about fixing this...

Cut out the rust hole til you get solid metal, make a cardboard template off of the other side that will just cover the hole, trace it out on a piece of 18 ga. metal, cut it out with a sawsall, hammer it to the right shape, drill the fender mount hole, if it had a nut built in, spot weld one to the back of the new piece & weld it in. It isn't that hard if you have the tools. Good luck!

Problem is that theres nothing left. Its all completely rotted.. Nothing to compare it to.

If both sides are gone, you may want to cut them off a donor car. That area is the same for 2 and 4 doors.
