  • Front fender gurus!

    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?

    The front holes on apron match up for hood shelf. Could it be adjusting front fender supports?? These as gas light fenders 28-29

        Jim, I actually have that bookmarked already! I think even I could do that! But using clamps it looks pretty good. Just dont know if the fender should overlap the apron.

        I think I answered my own question by googling images.....the fender does over lap a bit on top of the apron.

          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?;

          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...

          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?

          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.

          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...

          The early forged front fender bracket
          by Steve Plucker
          OK Guys…One last time here.

          This concerns the early forged front fender bracket at it’s mounting end to the front fender.

          The MARC/MAFCA RG & JS’s tell us on page 4-14 Revised 2011, the following about the FRONT FENDER BRACKETS:

          “Initially, (front) fender brackets were forged with squared outer ends and ¼” RAISED “ROUND” BOSSES at the fender edge”.

          Aluminum Model A Front Fender Build
          by RockHillWill
          This is a project that I have wanted to try since getting more involved in the metal shaping segment of automotive restoration. I have taken a particular interest in doing aluminum work because it looks to be more difficult to achieve by both welding and finishing. This project is a 1930-1931 Front fender. I have been involved the last few years with a gentleman in Belfast, Tennessee who asked for...

          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
