measure 3 times cut twice

I thought you had already been welding parts. If you go to Welder Series you can check out their instructions for installing their kit. The same measurements and layout will work for a stock M II crosmember. you will probably want to use dropped spindles to get it down and clear the fenders ,The instructions are in their catalog. I make most of my parts but some of their stuff is already engineeried and not worth my time trying to re-invent the wheel.

You could prolly split a piece of muffler pipe to get the basic shape, then pound out the ends to flow better...

Mr.Russ makes a good point... I would like to add this... The tighter the fit, The more the hump will show,, The longer the hump is the more you can make it flow into the fender...Don't just make a box to cover the hole like I see some do.. The fender has a lot of round to it... Make the patch with some round to it.. It will flow better and not look like a sore thumb.. Hope this makes sence... I don't remember is these fenders steel or fiber glass ??

Why not try to get some scrap from a body shop close to the shape you think will work or visit the local pic&pull. You might salso look into cannabalizing a trailer fender . or anything with the contour you want. Good luck, Bob.
