I will be here all day, not figuring on going anywhere... it isn't too muddy yet, don't think we made it to 2" yet...It's been a nice steady rain rather than downpours... may have to hike out there though... haven't been out to see how muddy it is.

I must have explained how to put it in good enough then... glad you got it in already, gotta be better than that shot slider!
Like I said, I couldn't get by too long without a torch, has been well worth the investment for me, I use it regular for scrapping and for building things as well.

That window will make a big difference... gotta hate breeze in the winter time! Sounds like some PB Blaster is in order for changing out those inners. I've busted off a bolt or 2 taking off a doghouse on a 68.

i didnt break a single bolt switching out those inners today, i did grind off two that were spinning. it took about 4 hours to do the swap. i took a ton of pictures of the before and after and during to show what the problems were that appeared from swapping a 73 inner fenders with 1970 inner fenders. i will explain all that later when i post the pictures and give ya all a link to see the project. but i gotta go to work now, i gotta be in greenbay at 6am. see ya.

Sounds good. 73 and 70... sounds interesting. I was going to try some 78/79 inners on my 69. I knew they were different, but by measuring they looked "adaptable". Can't wait to see/hear more about it.

I had seen a thread on here that says you can swap them, just have to use the 73-79 hinges. We'll soon know, sounds like he got them to work...

y, I had it all... but with some many projects - they went with the rest of the truck when I sold it. The inners I have seen on the 73-79s all looked like they are galvanized or something - guess they learned after making them like my 69s. My hoood hinges are all but torn away as the inner fenders are totally rotted where the hinges stress on them.

Saurian has a good reputation on FTE.Saurian has a good reputation on FTE.
Inner fenders being the things on each side of the engine that ALL the crap bolts to? Lord, I'd cry if I had to. Luckily...my truck has only 5 or 6 little less-than-dime-sized spots of rust just behind the front driverside tire on the fender metal, and then just little hints under both bumpers. Course, I'm probably going to sell it and get one with lots of rust lol so it doesn't matter.

LOL ... not much "crap" in a 69- especially a base model F-100 with a 240.

it's easiest to just pull the clip and switch them out that way, and I'm sure that exactly what he did. They aren't all that bad to pull, it took less than half an hour to pull the clip off the donor truck. It was pretty clean for the age, I suspect the clip is newer than the truck, the rest of it is nothing but rust... the front fenders and inners are clean as they get. Even the rad support looked pretty good, no rust through on it either...
