Need help with front inner fenders on a 47 ford

I have removed the complete frontend in one piece,minus hood and bumper I have installed a mustang11 front end. Does anyone know if the inner fenders have to be cut out to clear the top A arms and if so does anyone have the measurements. If this has to be cut out I would like to do it before I try to reinstall the frontend. Thanks in advance.

I have not done a 47 Ford with the MUSTANG II ... but on a 40 Ford ... you have to trim the inner fender panels. I would imagine the 47 would be the same way. Trial and error fitting is all I can suggest ...

I agree with Deuce, can't imagine them not needing to be trimmed. Use up lots of cardboard as patterns before you actually attack the inner fenders. Once they are cut it's difficult to put it back.
