Not much help because I doubt I'll ever do the modification because I'll never be able to get the parts, but it's a nice fact to know. I try to get all of the information I can, specifically for the '48-52 truck, mostly '48-50. I suck up any information I can find, thanks.

I'm in the same boat as Bob. I love the look of the Mercury parking lights and front fender trim. I doubt I'll ever get close to finding any, especially way down here in NM, but I sure like the extra bit of trim.

Bob, you've got the skill and talent, I'm sure you could fabricate the necessary receptacle for the parking lights. Heck, I'd bet that if you did it they would even be protected from the road grime.

Greg M-47 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I've got one more piece of information that might be of interest in regards to Mercury fenders. There is a guy in Owen Sound Ontario who makes a fiberglass front fender. And he does a very nice job of it. He doesn't have a website but I can search for his number if you are interested ? He usually has a lot of the Mercury trim on hand too. Last time I talked to him he had a number of nice '48-'50 grills. So it might not be as hard as you think to get the parts you need to Mercurize your Ford panel !?
