I've been thinking about adding fender flares to my '75 Ford shorty, but I haven't been able to find a source for sliding door extension hardware to create the necessary clearance. Anyone have a source ?

Old stock. Ebay, craigslist, junkyard, swap meet. However, if you are handy with a welder or know someone who is, you can build your own from two standard door extensions. Then you have to find a way to extend the stop in the slider track to get the slider arm to stop sliding at the right point in time.

I had one on my old 84 E150. It actually worked OK, most of the time. Getting the stop adjustment set properly was critical.

Been checking ebay,craigslist. Nothing that fits '75. I knew lots of guys who had them "back then", most worked just fine.

If a person that lives near a Bone Yard that could collect all the slider arms..... make a jig & welding fixture. The 1st run could be 50 extensions. They could make a fortune.... well a vanner fortune ...lol

I've been keeping my eyes open for 6 months and haven't found anything for my 84 just yet. I wish someone with the know how would make them again. I'd throw money at them.

Get two stock slider extensions. Cut one end off each. Weld them together. Done.

I welded two together for my 76 Ford and it worked perfect. I see them on Ebay but the cost is up there. If you need it you have to pay.
