    Just looking for some more ideas for new inner fenders. As of now, I will use just plain rubber for them. But I cam across a picture and really like how it looks and how it will function. I can send it to someone if they will post it for me.

    Anyone else make true inner fenders out of say 26 gauge sheet metal or so?

    Thanks

    on my other truck I wanted to airbag it before I bought my blazer anyway I wanted to make new fenders out of trailer fenders, They are tire shaped, cheap, and look good. Might not work on a larger engine bay though. I will find a pic so you know what I'm talking about

    I Should have mentioned. I am looking more for the front than the rear, they are easy compared to the front.

    Thanks

    I know, but you can use these for the front, I just used rear pics cause thats all I could find quickly. The process for using them on the front is exactly the same as the tech showed. these were what I was going to use when I junked mine on my other truck for the front.

    I suppose it could work, but my front wheel wells are no where near a half cylinder anymore. I think starting with plain sheet metal would be easier, and cheaper.

    Thanks
