IM putting together a 24-25. In what order do I put in the wooden hood shelves.

Is it;
splash guards, running boards, fenders, wood blocks, hood shelves?

Thanks,

In my opionion, you would install splash apron, fenders, running boards, wooden blocks and hood shelves, linbolts for hood shelves, the the hood hooks.funning boards last. As the running boards fits ovethe splash apron and the fender lip, and dotnt forget the wooden block between the fender and running boards.

They are installed thusly:

Splash aprons
Running boards
Fenders
Hood shelves


Let's be clear, hood shelves on a 24-25 are made of metal with two wooden blocks under each one where the spring loaded hood clips would be.

You put your hood latches on first, wood blocks, and springs so it's all together as one unit. Then run your head light wire through the appropriate bushing and hole and assemble with the long skinny carriage bolts for holding them down. (They go through the fender and the frame).

What you REALLY need to do is purchase the "Model T Ford Service Manual" from a supplier. It will detail in written instructions and pictures exactly what you are supposed to do.

The reason for installing the wiring at this time is because it is impossible to install it later.

Dominic:
You are close. Splash guards, fenders then the running boards. The lip on the fender that would go under the running board must fit under the running board, and the wood spacers under the hood shelves. On my '19 and on my '17 I had to align the hole of the wooden blaock to fit. Take it easy and slow, as the saying goes measure twice and cut once, or the same and drilll once.
Good luck and Happy "T"ing
