    Word, if you want the front end to work you have to combine the front half of the 99-00 fender with the back half of the 95 fender.

    I could have sworn someone use to make special fenders for these conversions. But I can't seem to find them. You maybe want to butt the two cut fenders together and weld them (outside and inside). Possibly tac weld it, and leave some space between takes so it will be held together, but nothing too messy from a long chain weld. Make sure both ends are both butted together smoothly while welding then bondo the rest to smooth it out. Just my 2c though. Idk if it would work, but it is a possibility.

    This is a bad idea, you will definitely NOT end up with a new OR clean look unless you know what you're doing. Since you don't even know how you would go about patching the fenders together, I recommend either getting some experience with bodywork first, or going to a body shop and getting an estimate.

    Yes, I'd advise a body shop.
