I suspect that much feathering was compensating for more than just the fender. I would expect the door has it as well and probably the hood. Someone was likely repairing accident damage and couldn't get the body lines to match up right. I would remove the fender to determine why it rotted away in the first place. Undercoating is easier to do with it off and it may help to spot future problems. Or just replace the fender. I would think that one could be had from a Cross Canada dealer.
