i have never welded a stainless guzzi fender. I have done a few countertops. They suck. They warp.

Tig would be the way to go. It may be easier for you to hire it out.

If you want to do it, you need gas for stainless and stainless wire compatible with what ever your fender is made out of. There are many kinds of stainless. Does a magnet stick to it? Is it chrome plated?

If you do it, measure the thickness of the fender and practice on something else the same.
