Dear Jim,

This must be the season for MGB-GT crunching. My sweetie drove our Nazi
Sh*T box (jetta GL) directly into my right front fender of my 70 B-GT
destroying said fender. It could have been me doing this as you said, so I
am now concerned with repair. I ordered a new fender and trim from the
"Proper MG" and now I have to decide whether to paint it Before I put it
on or after. Any suggestions out there? IF I paint after I put it on, how
can I protect the inside of the fender properly as not all of it will be
accessable to paint when it is already on the the car. But, if I paint
before hand, I worry that the new paint job might crack if I have to twist
the new fender to get it to fit correctly.

Any experiences or educated opinions out there?
