    Default Ideas for hiding stars cut into fender???

    Just bought a chopper that was incomplete recently working on finishing it getting ready to do paint. And I'm at a standstill with the Stars the previous owner cut into the rear fender. One problem I have with the Stars as they are way off center and they are cut unevenly and look odd up close. I have thought about while welding a backing plate into the fender and filling them with Bondo. But I am looking for other ideas that might be able to cover hide the stars with? I have also thought about putting a decal over the Stars but that will show through. I got a lighter

    Already have remove the pin striping and the cheap weird clear coat you put over the bare frame.

    That's how you do it the right way............ Or just weld up the stars with the plate behind them...........

    Path of least hassle, especially if just building it to flip because keeping things clean and simple attracts buyers.

    I think I will go this route. It would be easiest and best.

    Just a thought, how about a large type sheetmetal fendertip of your design over the top? Maybe kindof a wing tip shoe, cowboy boot toe overlay? Any kind of artistic sheetmetal overlay? HD bar and shield, rattlesnake, sheetmetal flames?

    You could chop it off. There's a reason why it's called a chopper. And who doesn't love more fat tire showing?
