Does anyone know if it is at all possible to obtain the CAD file contains the exact fender, door, hood, ect.

    Are you looking for 3d models or technical drawings? Either one is going to be in short supply I'm afraid.

    Not sure you will find that sort of stuff on the net, have you looked on turbo squid they have lots of models, but most are not free.

    I'm looking for something that will be enough so i can just send them to a machinist and have him punch them out for me. I am new to the CAD world and really have a lot to learn so I'm sorry if I sound like a moron with my lamens terms. lol

    Sorry to burst the bubble but nope your not going to find cad drawings already drawn out for you to send send to the machine shop, I would suggest you take up a course in Autocad, 12 weeks at 2 hours a week should do it, just to start you on your way.

    I know these files exist... how could all of the shops that make replacement fenders for all years of trucks drawn each and every truck by scratch?? That would never work.

    Hmmm.. Wonder what companies that produce repo body parts pay for schematics like that, I bet it's a bunch... Everyone's gotta get paid...
    So many commands, so little time....

    I do not believe you will get anything like that for free. Try contacting the OEMs and see if you can purchase something from them.

    Sorry but you will have a hard time getting this infomation. I work for a company that build the conveyors and presses for Toyota, Mercedes, Honda, Ford... these are used to manufacture the parts you are looking for. We have to sign paper after paper to get a copy of these parts in cad format. Most of them are drawn in Catia so unless you have a copy laying around they would be useless.

    Sorry,
    Brian
