Wow... it is amazing how much the parts have "moved" since they were new!

I have installed 2 rear fenders on my 1915 project but is was no SIMPLE task. Nothing lined up!

I won only because I refused to give up!

Way to go John. Like you said, "never give up" seems to be the key to success with these cars. Works for me.

Good deal John! You might have just inspired my next 'free' project (semi-looking for cheap things to fix on the ol' girl! She's a bit droopy on the front fenders. I suspect the outside edges of the front and rear fenders should be in line, yes? Mine's a '24, but I would think this might hold true for most years ???

I have not messed with them yet ... is getting them right, mostly a matter of heating and bending the irons??

I'll be getting some help with the box Harold. The fenders weigh nothing but lining up them holes... oh my gawd!

I held up one front fender and I'll be looking for help with them but today... off to make some pepperoni and breakfast sausage!

New radiator is installed as well. Waiting on some more parts...
