He has rubber on the fenders and the towel on top just there to soak up any grease.
Nice catch re the wheel arch but not fresh!
Got rubbed off in a shipping container when the previous owner shipped it from the Netherlands to US.
He gave me touch up paint but will have to see how bad it really is first.

Sometimes these little blemishes are better left as is. Just so long as no rust. Also I noticed on the driver side the lower hinge on the rear door seems also to have a paint scare. This seems to be apparent in the photo of the side shot provided by montyW.

Plasti-dip those fenders. They look much better in black, and the plasti-dip will protect the paint (a bit) from flying gravel.

Was doing some research on documents/receipts in the truck.
Looks like Cor Millenaar did a lot of work to this truck within the last 10,000 miles - to the tune of $11k usd
Can't beat that!

Did you replace the front and rear main seals while you are in there?
