I'm working on a rust free 1946 chevy truck it's coming along very well, the problem is someone before me bobed the rear fenders is there anything that can be done to restore these fenders?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "Bobbed", but replacement fenders are available and way less work. shake

The back of the fender was cut off even with the box, I would like to keep it all steel the only fenders I could find are fiberglass.

You could find someone to make the piece of fender that was cut off. Of course you would need a pattern or at least a picture. Then weld them on.




Why work on one truck when I can work on two and get half as much done.

That's what I was going to try and do but I don't have a pattern. I just thought maybe I could find a set lerking around somebody's back yard even if there not in good shape I could use the bottom part.

Patch panels might do it if you can find them. There's always a couple fenders on ebay. Just seen some today.

Rear steel fenders were pretty hard to find when I was looking for some. I do have some and they are off my truck. If I can help out with a pattern or whatever else, let me know.

46chevy68 - Or just noticed you are a couple hours drive from me. We are about one hour or so south of Harrisburg. If you want to come get the fenders and borrow them to help out, let me know.
