    Scout II cutouts for Gorilla fender flares. I cut the inner and outer fenders out and stitch welded the outer and inner fender lips. Next I skinned the inner fender with sheet metal for a cleaner look and welded in as well. Floated the outside of the fender with a very, very thin coat of filler. Came out pretty well, and should look really clean when the rig is painted... here are the pics

    Thanks. My brother had his shop fab it up. The stock plastic/fiberglass one would not work as I modified the mounts due to an aftermarket radiator.

    220 MIG and 220 ARC... the sheetmetal, fenders, patch panels were done with MIG and the heavier steel plating for the suspension, undercarriage is ARC. Cutting is being done with Oxy/Acetylene.

    What year is your Scout? Was just looking at images online, they sure made cool looking trucks. Do you have a color in mind for the finished product?

    It's a '74. Will be using "Don't yell at me yellow" from Monstaliner. Made a custom dash from the existing to accommodate the round gauges. Spot welded and tacked sheetmetal over the existing bezel holes, cut for round gauges and skimmed with filler. Made the custom gauge pod from fiberglass. The offroad light panel was also made from fiberglass and skimmed to accommodate the cockpit switches. Rewired the entire engine compartment and dash, damn that sucked as IH used the same green wire with little numbers printed on them for differing circuits... Shot the dash bezel in the yellow color and main dash and bed in the black. Will probably go with a yellow body and black top...

    Nice job on the fenders, well on the whole project for that matter. But I see one huge flaw................No Cup Holders, your coffee mug is going to make a mess when it tips over.
