I presume you're talking about a Cub? What material are you using for build your fenders?

The fenders have a flat bracket attached to them that bolts on the rail that is a step down from the seat bracket.

Yes,there is a bracket that goes around the axle. I don't own a Cub with round fenders or I would take some pics. for you.

That's what it looks like to be, see the two holes in the frame rail in the last pic.

Looked thru some PD pictures and came across a buddys 70 plowing with a decent rear view of his fenders .

They are also clamped at the bottom to the axle tubes , if you need better pictures I can take some of my fenders on a 100 in the garage ,I'll  have to move a few things to get to it tho .

Looks like a good plan. Are you sure you want them that wide though? If you ever decide to put narrow (6-12) tires on, the wide fenders will look kind of silly. IMHO

the other set of tires that i have and will stay on ita are a set of 8.50's so the width will be nice. i dont like dirt or other things being thrown off the tires at me lol.

My uncle made a set of fenders out of a Barrel he got from work.They look good with a set of nice wide tires under them.He used a set of 12" skid steer tires on his.He said they were a pain in the butt to mount on the factory rims but they give great traction and they add quite a bit of weight to the rear of the tractor.

 

He's got it put away for the winter but next time I get down that way I'll take a couple pics of it.

I like that idea. If you use the ends you already have the inner fender attached!
