  • I need truck front fenders

    I really miss driving around in my Orange pickup, and would like to get it back on the road. In order to do this, I desperately need a set of C Cab front fenders. (2R5 style with the small wheel openings, and no holes for the Transtar grille). A year ago, I was working on it and installed a Transtar grille to cover up the smashed in fenders, but nothing fit right, and I want it to have a Scotsman grille.

    Some small dents and minor rust is okay, but no swiss cheese. And yes, I'm on a budget. If I can't find a set, then the truck will sit for a while longer. [:I]

    Anybody got any?

    I have a gorgeous set of polished door checkmarks, and need something to put them on. [)]

        If I can straighten out a back fender that was mashed flat on a 56 wagon you can beat out a few dents on your pick up. Get you a set of body hammers and a bunch of dollies. And go to beaten. Start out with big blows and end up with a bunch of small ones.

          Mine MIGHT could be fixed.. But I'd like to find better ones.

          The headlight buckets got pushed into the fenders, and it ain't pretty. With all the bending they're pretty weak. The driver's fender has been hit in the front at least 3 times now. Not to mention the tears, rips, and 15 year old bondo patches over rust..

          I just want a better set of fenders. I hate patching and I hate bondo.

          I have a nice Scotsman hood and a nice Scotsman grille. Just need nice fenders.

            Matt, start thinking ALSO about trading. Your developing skills for fenders or part of the price. I only have one car and the improvements come one at a time. But there a lot of people with more than one car and may be willing to have work done and trade. If all else fails, START CHARGING FOR YOUR WORK! Have faith young man, have faith.
