Dug out my rear mudguards tonight one is probably past it so is the other but I need one so Im going to have a go at repairing them uk one is the worst so ill start on the non uk one as its a bit more solid.
I cut out  the bad area this had cracked and been brazed so I thought it better
 to remove it completely I dressed a new piece to weld back but in not sure whether to mig or tig the patch back in but heading towards mig as I haven't much experience with tig welding so Ill see how it goes.

Bikes used in the UK seem to have more problems with the tinware than other countries.

Given the standard of your previous work, I'm sure these will look excellent as well

Mig welded the patch in I think it would have been ok if id taken my time but I rushed it and it is no good at all so Im going to redo it properly this time going to make a wooden dolly the same shape as the inside of the mudguard to dress it properly and i am going to tig braze the patch in hopefully I can get it right this time ill do it when ive got a bit more time and in the right frame of mind
