    I could be at home working on my A instead of working 12 hours a day to pay for my A. Speaking of $$$ who makes correct or near correct '28 fenders?

    Do you have the Restoration Guidelines? They have pictures to show the two styles of 1928 front fenders. Which fenders do you need?

      Are they not all made by one company and sold by many?

        I think it is gas light that makes and distributes them

          Thanks Mitch....I wasn't clear. Looking for fenders that are the closest to what Henry made...

            What are 28-29 Model A Front Fenders worth today?
            by Steve Plucker
            What are 28-29 Model A Front Fenders worth today? Yes I know...It all depends on condition of the fender itself.

            I have about 10 sets of Front Fenders in various shapes and condition.

            That goes for 28-29 Rear Fenders (No Beaver Tails).

            28\29 Ford Pickup Front Fenders
            by lalkie
            I have a 29 Pickup with two front fenders that are pretty rough. I was wondering if two 30/31 front fenders would fit the 29 without much trouble. The 30/31 fenders are a lot better and the drivers side has a well. Larry

            '30-'31 Reproduction Fenders - What experience do you have?
            by Jwmckenzie
            Just was looking at the write up on repairing reproduction fenders in the Body Shop Forum, very informative.


            Seems the issue being addressed in the write up is a poor fit of the skirt nose to the fender. Is the problem the fender or skirt nose? I...

            Buffing front fenders
            by JohnB15632
            About Last Monday, I painted the front fenders, aprons, and the firewall. I put down 3 layers of Top Coat Paint. I then put down 2 layers of Clear Coat. I have not touched them all week.

            My question is, now that buffing is my next step, where is the best location to do the buffing of the front fenders? Do I buff them on the tables or can I mount them on the frame?

            Sorry the...

            Fiberglass Fenders
            by Paul D
            I'm looking at a Model A Coupe, but it has fiberglass fenders. New to the hobby and the forum and would like to know if this should be a deal breaker?

            28 Model A with 30 fenders and stanchions.
            by pooch
            If you have ever wondered what an early A would look like with 30 fenders, here it is.

            SS 30 stanchions are fitted too.

            The next info will probably only be of use to OZ guys....

            Has a HR front end with CRS 2 inch dropped spindles.

            With this setup, I got it as low as I wanted it at the front WITHOUT having to fit lunchboxes....

            What DID I buy?
            by Mickey
            I posted a while back a question about fenders and have a follow-up question.
            ( )

            What did I buy??

            The fenders are lined up nose to nose.

            Now let me say I hold no one accountable but myself. It's entirely up to me to make sure I get what I'm looking for. I didn't take measurements or pictures but had...

            AA and regular A fenders
            by Great Lakes Greg
            Are AA front fenders larger than the car and light truck fenders, or is it an illusion?

            Tell tale signs of repop 28/29 front fenders?
            by SeaSlugs
            Gonna buckle down and straighten out one of the 2 half decent pass side front fenders I have, Both have good beads with minor 1/4" crack in the usual outer spot (but not bent and farmer globed fixed or anything) but one down by the running board area was a layer of bondo hiding some nasty lumpy metal underneath but has a decent rest of it. The other fender i have is darn near mint in that area...
