A-HA! I suspected as much but wasn't sure. I thought I was being a lunatic but now . . . the gloves are off and the welder is coming out!

Many guys use a second beater fender pan just for winter/cabs and keep a pristine fender deck for summer. Just a thought. I bet it's cheaper by far than a new cab.
