    73\' iner fenders on 85\' font clip??

    The P.O. of my truck put an 85 front clip on my 76 blazer. And in doing so he got rid of the inner fenders. I have a set that i can get but they are out of a 73 suburban. Will these bolt in? Or could I get them to bolt in without use of a welder? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The PO of my '73 put a '91 front clip on it. The passenger side inner fender was rusted through, so I went to the junkyard and picked one up from a '76 pickup. It bolted right up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I vaugely remember having to do a little modifying. Maybe had to drill one hole, or enlarge one a bit, but it went right on. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
