52 f-1 rear fenders

I heard that steel rear fenders for 51 and 52 f-1's were being reproduced, but I don't remember by who. Has anyone else heard this? If so who is selling them?
thanks, scott

I believed they are made by Carpenter, but they want the same price. Actually the price is reasonable compared to the cost to repair the typical rusted out ones. There are very little offered in patch panels especially for the fenders, so all patches must be hand made. It may look like the typical rust areas are simple or flat, they are not, they are compound curves with rolled wire edges that require an experienced metalsmith to shape properly. Flat patches would show like crazy and/or require excessive filler that will also show. If you are going to put 1/4" or more filler on a fender you might as well put fiberglass repros on it, same thickness or less and the FG will hold up and look better than bondo and are cheaper.

Hey Scott,
We had the same dilemma with our '50 F1. Once we sand blasted it became apparent that all of our fenders were toast - covered by an inch or more of bondo. We eventually opted for the fiberglass fenders. I was concerned that it would be that cheap fiberglass stuff from the 70's.

They are actually nice & thick & after running them for 2 years - no issues.
They aren't totally plug & play - you still have to sand them & work them a bit to get them to fit & tighten up the gaps. Very minor work. We paid $265 ea. a couple of years ago. We did go with metal running boards as I just wasn't comfortable stepping up on glass boards.

Good luck over there in Cleveland.

THanks for the information guys. I think I'm going to wait a while before I do anything with the fenders. I'm sure they are a difficult fender to reproduce and not as much demand as for other years

You are correct in both assumptions.

Great looking truck. What sizes are the wheels and tires? Brand of wheels and tires?

Hey Gearhead,
The wheels are my son's choice. A little flashy for me but
I went for it as it will be his truck at some point (when he's financially independent).


The wheels are from Summit - the part # at the time was 142-8865c6 - they were pricey at $200ea. I think they have come down a bit. I'll have to look at the tires - pretty low profile.

Thanks. Have you posted a side view of your truck? I looked in your profile and didn't see one.
