 REPLACE RIVETS OR LACING ON FENDER
This repair assumes no leather has been damaged and only the rivets or lacing needs to be replaced. If the leather on the fender has been damaged it is suggested that a patch to reinforce the fender be added. If the stirrup leather has been damaged it is suggested that the entire stirrup leather be replaced. See replacement of stirrup leathers.
