Yep, some quality time ahead.

MIG time today. First, the patch in the left side of the cowl.

I think it would help to set the wire feed just a bit down. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)
Less time grinding the welds down.

Thanks for the suggestion. Each day it seems like the MIG responds differently.

After more tweaks and bends, and cutting the top seam to fit, I clamped the fender in place. I then started measuring and comparing from right side to left side.

I also propped the frunk lid in place, a good reference since this piece (not from this car) is almost certainly straight.

Fit by the cowl (the fender is just a bit low and too far out).

The front corner. The front panel still needs to shift inward, confirmed by measured lengths and angles.

Still trying to assess and adjust the fender fit. I would like to bolt on the door, but really can't without setting the body down from the rotisserie, and removing the braces (which would require cutting). So I made a cardboard template directly from the door, and got it as close as I could accounting for the curvature. I think it is accurate except for the upper part of the leading edge.

Gaps are about 3/16 inch front...

And rear. I don't think the fender should shift any more rearward (and probably not forward).

No 914 work today. I did some office work in the morning, and then started on a big outdoor project: removing and thinning the scrub oak that are too close to the house. This should help reduce danger from brush fires.

Here's the boss checking the first 10 minutes of work.

After more brush clearing, I got back to the 914, still in measuring mode. I marked more reference points, and compared distances and angles from right to left.

I also installed the eyebrows, as another way to check alignment and compare. Here's the right side from above.
