when I mounted my seat to the gas tank bolt on the front of the seat, I marked where the springs sat on the frame, and that is where I welded the studs that the springs sit on/in. I also just used the studs, rather than bolting the springs to the frame, so that access to the electric box was easy, just pull the two spring clips off the studs and the seat pivots up.
I bought a front fender from a swap meet, so I don't know what bike it came from, but I've read where a shadow 650 front fender works great for a rebel rear fender with very little fab work needed, PM shadowshack for details, I'm thinking he is the one that posted something about that awhile back.
