  • 29 RPU rear fenders

    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 same as I was wondering if the apron needed to be back a little. I have tried many methods. My last was first bolt fender to apron then bolt the last hole on opposite side which mounts to bed. Doing this it looks even from the rear but the other fender holes dont match up to attach to the bed side. Pic 1) is the fender mounted to the apron, pic 2) is showing how low the fender is with no hole alignment, 3) is a top image that shows the pass through hole to connect fender to the side which is to low and off center from fender hole. These fenders are new. Why would one side line up and the other not......miss me yet??? LOL

    I'd say the bed is good, but measurements to compare would be in order. We all know and have heard how the reproduction aprons and fenders fit.

      Dennis as Mitch pointed out above I used the DeWalt. No other option really but as long as it is even and looks good I dont mind. Is there a left and right running board or does it matter?

      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

      Trying to identify this rear fender
      by merjohn
      This is a left rear fender that came with the 31 Huckster. It was not attached but the bolt holes match up with the original running board and with the original metal that covered the side of the truck. This could be repaired but the passenger rear fender is a mess. It looks like it was made from two different fenders and neither one of them matches this fender. It has a weld down the center and...

      Front fender gurus!
      by Beauford
      My front fender overlaps the apron a little and does it on both sides. I assume it just needs to butt up. My rear apron bolt is in the only farthest hole so I would assume there as back as they go. Any suggestions?

      Fender apron
      by pops30
      I have a fender with the front section of the apron attached to the fender. Were they welded on from the factory? Or do I have a 28-29 fender? Thanks in advance....

      1930 Pickup fender, apron, running board welt
      by Dennis
      I need details on the welt between the fenders and splash aprons. Did the welt continue on as the same piece from the fender to bed and then to fender to splash apron? What about between fender and running board, did they install welt there?

      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...

      1930/31 Repo Front Fenders
      by merjohn
      Is it common for the new 1930/31 repo front fender flange that bolts to the running board to be 1/4 narrower than the running board flange. We have used repo front fenders and both of them are the same. The fenders do measure 1/4 narrower at the mounting flange than the unusable originals that we have. The running boards are new and they measure the same as the originals. The aprons fit into the...

      Front Fender wells
      by Steve Plucker
      This concerns the Front Fender Wells, A-16040, that were assembled to the 1928-1929 front fenders.

      Here is what I need to know:

      It must be an original assembled fender well and not one that was "welded" on later.

      1..Is fender to frame flange a 7", 5-3/4" or 3-1/8" fender at the rear of the fender at the lower cowl section?;

      Is this fender beyond hope?
      by KB9JLO
      I can labor through most tasks, well most but not all. I will never pretend to be an auto body person, though. I'm looking at some used fenders, running boards, aprons, brackets...
      One rear fender has been crunched. What do you think? Beyond hope?
