It's 'beading', if I understand you correctly, and on original panels it
might have been spot-welded to the wing/fender rather than just sandwiched
on assembly.  Replacement beading is available.  The flange goes pretty
deep, possibly the depth of the wing/scuttle flange, so bolts might well go
through holes in the beading flange.
