Love the body filler detail on the chain guard. I spent lots of time on my 48 chain guard fitting it up to the rear fender. I had to weld on extra sheet metal and then cut it down to the correct match. There seemed to be no end to how much work it was going to take. At some I just called it a day. The gap on bottom was about 1/16 wider than the top when I stopped. For a while I looked at that gap on every skirted chief I found and mentally compared it to my bike. Looks like you've spent some time with the same detail. Looks good.
