I get that the trailer fenders are vintage, but I'd update to a full one piece double fender with an inner skirt to keep rocks kicked up by the wheels to a minimum.

Been stripping the old CM trim tabs w- paint stripper but it's been slow going. Not sure what type of paint was used in 69' but it is tough stuff. Need to find a sandblaster. Anyone have the paint code for Mercury Phantom Black?
Thanks-
