I didn't realize the F600 wheel openings were as big as they were. Seeing the two (F600 & F 100) togeather helps to understand the cuts. Thanks for posting the additoional pictures.

I have these F600 fenders that are in very good shape and after pricing new ones I decided to modify these into F100's.

I cut out the wheel well opening which were in fairly good condition considering the rest of the fenders were pretty much non-existent

I cut the wheel well opening from the F600 fenders and clamped the remains of the F100 using measurements from my panel. I had to cut higher into the F600 than what I wanted to in order to keep them closer to the shape of the F100's

These rims are from a Crown Vic and have way too much back spacing making things look strange, Once the fenders are complete I will be able to measure things up for some proper rims and get rid of these rollers

Good morning Pat, the F-600 fenders are slightly wider at the front by 1/2" -3/4" and flare out slightly as they move back to the cab, the roll is not a sharp as the F100's from the hood, that was the reason for patching so high into the fender. The rear of the fender where it meets the running board is also longer by 1 1/4" and also longer where it joins the front roll pan, so still have work to do in those areas. Here's a picture of where it meets the roll pan.

Not much more to report, did get the lower sections up in the front to match the front roll pan.

And a patch welded on the bottom rear section. I'm repairing the top of the fender now where it bolts up to the cowl, will likely take some more pictures tomorrow. This left fender requires more work than the right and I just discovered another small area that needs a small patch.

Didn't get much done today other than hauling scrap to the dump but did get a start on the rust repair to the top rear section of the left fender, will have to finish it up on my next days off work. Did it in two pieces on top skin out of 18 gauge and one piece on the underside out of 16 gauge.

Well I finally finished up the metal work on the front fender, there were a few more spots that needed repair, After I welded in the wheel well opening I needed to repair both front and rear bottoms of the opening and the center of the arch and a small section under the light brow.

Also shortened the rear section by 1 1/4" to meet the running board and the bottom 6" on the opening.
