Studebaker Champion - Fender Welt

We plan to replace the fender welt on the Champion when the weather warms up a bit. There's a good thread on the SDC forum about this topic.

For those unfamiliar with fender welt, it's the paintable rubber found between the rear fenders and the car body on a Studebaker Champion.

When dealing with a paint job like ours (where the existing welt was painted over), it's critical that we score the seam between the fender and car body before unbolting the two; we don't want to crack the paint.
