Bought a 25 pickup bed and it's missing the fender brackets, anybody have a pic of what I need to make?
Here's a pic of original.
The backing plate provides strength for the fender iron. See the plate on the opposite side panel. Note the iron is broken off on this one on the foreground.
That iron mount is very similar to the touring car fender iron, find one at a swap, and un-rivet it from the touring rear support, the round arm is threaded and fits into the iron mount. On original pickups that arm is a bit longer I think than the touring car, but it should work ok.
A '23-'25 touring rear fender iron mount and threaded round arm pirated off an old touring support was used on this wood panel to hold the rear fender.
This is what I'm creating
Disgusting. Next thing you'll be telling us is you plan to drive and enjoy it !
Call it what you will, I'll call it cool
Burger - Is that a picture of your TT? If so, I'd like to suggest that it sure would make a nice picture to post on your Profile.....
Just my opinion.....
Keith how was the tour, no flat's on the rear of the TT I hope
Nice TT cab....that will be a fun truck, a buddy built this one...

I have a drawing of the bracket and will send you a PM when I find it. Also recommend contacting Steve Coniff in Colorado Springs, CO as he has this data. Does the steel box have the fitting to accept the bracket ?
If you don't want to fabricate parts, try to find the '23-'25 touring car rear frame upright that has those irons riveted. Two on are each R or L upright support. One holds the top prop rod, the other holds the fender rod. That iron mount is threaded for the rods, and riveted to the upright.
Usually you can find old rusted uprights and cannibalize these iron mounts.
Bummer, I think I just scrapped one of those......
I just looked and I have a pair of them, Let me know if you need them.
I doubled checked my pile and I did scrap them.
Rex - Must be that you've never been advised of the "unwritten rule" that Model "T" guys NEVER throw anything away! Ha,ha,......harold
I typically don't......lol
Gator is making the pickup fender iron. He made it from an original that I have. They are about an inch longer than the touring car, but a touring car will work in case you don't have a real one.
Larry they will be of good quality if Gator is making them, just like your products
