  • 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

      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?

      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...

      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?

      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.

      1929 Welled Front Fender
      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...

      Front & Rear Fender Welt on a Pickup?
      by 30Pickemup

      I’ve looked through the fine posts on fender welting - and I just can’t see how the rear is routed down to the splash apron, then to the running board - and then out to the end?
      Also - is there a strip that goes on the front of the running board - up across the rear edge of the front fender to the cab?
      I”ve routed a white coat hanger to see if this is where the welting should...
