Nice looking Ford.  I've been tempted to do the same for a fire engine...I better finish some others first. Did you widen the fender's from the F-100 kit or just open up the wheel well?

Steve, I made the same conversion for a milk tanker a few years ago. So I know that this conversion is not that easy.

Well done!
