The rear fenders were a bit easier than the fronts. Instead
of mounting to the brake backing plates, the rear fenders will clamp to
the axle housings.
Like the front fenders, we need to make sure they don't start
flexing in the wind. Because the rear fenders will mount to the axle housings
at a single point, instead of at four separate points spread across the
back wall, this is more of a concern with the rear fenders.
An additional plate (above), will be welded to the inside
of the fender wall. It has been further strengthened by the raised reveals
which will resist any tendency to flex or twist.
Here you can see the clamp ring that will secure the fender
to the axle housing. The clamp will also allow the fender's position to
be adjusted if needed.
