  • 29 rear fender braces on pickup

      Hey bamboo, I don't know about the fender braces as I didn't choose to add them to my truck but would you know where all the bolts go for the bed? I have two large ones going downward in front of rear wheels but that is the only area I can find. There seems one goes in the side behind rear wheel but the kit I have the bolts are to big.

        One bolt goes on each side at the front of the bed through the Z bracket, see link

        Actually Bob my Brookville bed came with the wood all ready mounted. There are lots of bolts in the "Bed" only bolt kit. some must be already attached holding wood to bed but how many hold bed to frame? I have one on each side as of now...

          If I remember correctly four bolts. Two at the front at the Z bracket and two near the end of the frame.
          I see from pAAts post I missed the middle bolt.

          29 RPU rear fenders
          by Beauford
          Ok, so this is a Brookville bed with repo rear fenders. The brookville bed does not have mounting studs for rear fenders but a cleaver pass through behind a lip for a bolt. My driver side rear fits perfect. The passenger side does not line up. I lifted the body to slide apron out a touch as it needed that anyway. I measured the fronts of the aprons to the edges of the front brackets and both are the...

          Right rear fender for coup
          by carolinamudwalker
          Are there more than one manufacturer for rear fenders? I really need to replace the right rear fender on my 1930 sport coup. Anyone have one they would like to part with? I am aware that I will have to elongate some mounting holes and use 4 letter words to make it fit

          by lalkie
          I am in the process of putting a well in the LF of my 29 pickup. Could someone give me some measurements from where the running board bolts to the fender to where it begins on the fender and from where the fender bolts to the running board to the top of the fender where the well ends. Also the distance from the of the left edge of the fender to the left edge of the well. I haven't been able to...

          Rear Fender to body mounting
          by JohnB15632
          Something goofy is going on here. I seem to have two different sized nuts to mount the fender to the bodyl Am I goofy or are there indeed two different sizes?
          Would anyone know what size(s) these fasteners are?
          I have wasted half a day trying to figure this out. It took me half the morning to realize there were different sized nuts.

          Model A 31 right rear fender
          by JohnB15632
          I am sanding my fenders in preparation for painting. I am working on the right rear fender. The fender, as I have it has to "folds" In it that appears to be to be original. They do not look to be to be damaged.

          Post is deleted. I got my answer. The fender is accurate as shown.

          Fender Brace ??
          by ES2Rider
          Is there a rubber grommet or cushion that goes on this brace on the front fender bracket?
          There was nothing on it when I got the car.
          Thanks ...

          Fender bracket question
          by Mickey
          Is the rear of the front fender to frame mount supposed to be up level with the top of the frame or angled down as you see it here?

          Placing the RH tail light
          by Ray Horton
          I am going to add a RH taillight to my 1929 Tudor. Can someone please give me the correct diameter of the hole in the fender for the wiring? Also, if someone has a locator pattern for correct positioning, I could use that too.
