Cracked front fender repair
I know this has been posted before, but I am not sure if anyone documented a way to repair it.
If you hit a bump and hear the front tire rub the fender, it is very possible that your pre 2005 LT fender is cracked..
The photos attached show the "bondo" brand bumper epoxy the I acquired at Autozone for about $6. The kit included some mesh screen and a rubber pad to apply the epoxy.
Sand and clean the crack and surrounding area with alcohol and allow it to dry thoroughly. apply a thin coat of the epoxy and then lay the mesh in place. Be sure to cut the mesh to clear the bolt hole area. Hold the mesh in place as it tacks up which takes about 6 minutes. Mix another batch of epoxy and coat over the mesh.
I did not get a picture after the last coat of epoxy, but just enough to cover the mesh should do the trick.
Now...go wiggle your fenders and see if you need this fix.
