      Is the paint stripped off or the pic makes it look that way?

      Yikes!!! Beauford, 1500??!!
      To be ready for paint you only have to go to 600

      We do a ton of body/paint here, don't be a stranger about asking

    Looks tits...paint them up brother,find someone who shoots good base/clear,a high volume shop..you don't need an 'artist who specializes' you need a cat who shoots paint 8 hours a day.I try to get to the prep and paint guys and juice them a few bucks on the side,goes along way.

      I'll juice'm good. My neighbor owns a restor shop and gave me a hell of a deal on 2 coats PPG and clear but the vehicle needs to be inside so his floor space goes to the '72 Porche or the other old car they are doing a full ride on. I understand the money factor.

    If you have some pretty banged up fenders and are not building a point car, Wescott makes the finest fiberglass fenders there are. And the won't have to be "altered" like the current steel repros..

      I have read that there was a guy that worked the fiberglass fenders to a point that fooled everyone if you did not have a magnet.

        Ya know Mike, I see no reason why that can't be done. I have waited for it for years, but it seems no one was willing to take the time.

        Of course, now with the labor hourly rate so high, it wouldn't be worth it.

      I have wondered for many years where the term "repop" came from. I have always referred to reproduction parts as "repro".

        Young hipsters coined that,just like 'dizzy' for distributor...repop aint bad, but some of the others,like dizzy,are annoying to me.

          Or 'SPX' for 'Spokesman"

          Soon they will just lay it out in all text format. Soon we will be saying 'MoA' for Model A. Then it will be MoAFo.Shortened to 'MoFo'........... Been called that more times than I can recall!!

          Hood Latches
          by Beauford
          Are hood latches body paint color or black? '29 RPU I think I can get these Gaslight front fenders to work. The welting should fill in pretty well.

          Trial fit !
          by pAAt
          Bolted on my fenders, splash shields, and running boards today. It is a good fit, so I was going to pull them off tomorrow and get them painted.

          Called the Jury duty line tonight and now I get to serve my Government tomorrow. Always something getting in my way on this AA.

          Should be running soon enough anyway Thanks Beau for showing me it can get done, if you have enough...

          Sheetmetal fitment
          by SeaSlugs
          Well ive been off and on tweaking fender brackets and fenders to fit. Dawned on me by the time i add welting the hole locations would change slightly so i should be doing this fitting with welting present correct?

          Is it best to start by straightening the running boards, mounting them to the brackets, then focus on splash aprons or front fenders first?

          Not sure the proper...

          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....

          I must say a satanist invited welt...what a PIA. Looks pretty decent. I'm happy so that is all that matters. (Mitch don't come to my house LOL) Took all day for the front fenders. Stanchions, dash, windshield and hood shelves Friday and tank in bed all hooked up by Sunday.

          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...
