Not really that much work if you are experienced in basic bodywork.

Most bedfords will have some rust around the wheel arches, which complicates the issue.

Get some flares that fit properly first.. bolt on flares can be molded in pretty easily with body filler.

Hey marky, can you give us the redcliffe company as a backup if benny doesnt have them. Hey Nigzy can you do a bedford design showing bolt on flares, i am thinking something like the XU1 toranas, with the bolt heads showing.

bolt on flares for a bedford wouldn't work, you'd have to use bucky self tapers as you can't get in behind the guards - front or back for nuts and washers
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"
