Another Question on the 58

The only thing I need to finish for my 58 fleet is the bed,Before I send it off for paint I need to repair the wheel arch where someone had tried to flare them.I would like to replace the sheet metal,But there are no patch panels for the 58-59.Question is are the 60-66 fleet the same profile as the 58-59? I can but patch panels for the 60-66 and cut to size if profile is the same

No, they are different.

You can, however, use the fender arches from stepside fenders to repair that area, depending on how much the previous owner flared your arches.

Re: Another Question on the 58

Not perfect but by the time you yourself welded them in few would know unless they really knew these trucks.

The photos I posted are a 61 fleetside and 59 stepside .

There is a pair of 56 fenders in Renton for 99.00 but the left is missing a few inches at the front and the right looks like it has some damage on the lip.
