I have a friend who is not on the internet asking me to source what he is calling "fender shrouds" for his 27 Model T.
I can't find anything in my catalogs called a "fender shroud".
Any idea what he's asking for?
Well, that was my first (and only) thought but I guess I need to take a jaunt to the other end of the county and take a look for myself.
He said he called MAC's and they told him the part was no longer available, as if whatever it was he was asking for was available at one time. I see splash aprons in the current Langs, but I don't have a MAC to look in.
Guess I should go online to their site.
yeah i cant figure that one out,
Sometimes, I don't think the people at Mac's know what is going on. I guess if you have a book and can give them the page no. and the part no. maybe but maybe they will have it or not.
Mac's catalog, page 162 for the 2012-13 catalog. Splash aprons are available for 1927 models at 200 bucks a pair.
The fender shrouds are on the same catalog page as the wain shaft, semi-bulloid slots, engine grammeters and the Milford trunnions. Don't know why you can't find it.
Danial: Those are the things you wrap your hopelessly rusted through "barn find" fenders in before burying them out of sight in the backyard. :<) Seriously, might be the hood shelves or splash shields?
Danial, Could it be the radiator apron your friend is after? It goes between fenders just like the splash aprons. 1926/27 were special since they had a hole for a screw into the front engine mount.
Thanks for the suggestions guys, even the "Shroud of Fender" grin....
Evidently Howell's sells them and calls them "Inner Fender Patch panel" or some such...
Anyone have a pair for cheap?
A splash apron goes under the front of the radiator. A splash shield goes between the body and the running board. A fender shroud is probably something that someone dreamed up that didn't know what they were talking about in the first place!
Engine pans between fender and engine? Most of these have long ago been removed.
My '14 T still has the pans between the frame and engine. It's a love and hate relationship. I love to see them on a Model T, but hate them when working on the carb and the like.
I thought a fender shroud was something you put over a fender while working on the engine so your belt buckle would not scratch the expensive paint job.
