Trying to mock-up my front sheetmetal to my 51 Chevy truck???

I knew there would be some fabricating to be done when I started replacing fenders but with all my pictures I'm still stumped.
You guys with a Chevy AD truck and SBC 350, how did you fit your inner fenders to fit around all that new stuff you have?
Remember a picture is worth a thousand words.
Thanks

I had a 51 AD with a small block in it about 20 years ago. I don't remember any modifications to the inner fenders.

Yep, from what I remember there are no mods needed to the inner fenders other than if you have moved the stock steering box over.

If you have something "hanging out" like a alternator or something, you simply tuck it in on a different mount.

Have you changed something else along with your motor like the front suspension?

Yeah I have a MII and expect I'll have to trim around the upper shock mounts.
