Apologies in advance to John Tannehill for the use of his picture, but I like the looks of his front fender brace, does anyone have an extra one that they would be willing to sell?

I have the rod with the turn buckle/nut in the center but no ends.Bob Bergstadt might have one end.

Thanks James, I have sent a PM to Bob to see what he has, I'll let you know what he says.

Please PM me with what you would take for the rods and turnbuckle, thanks.

If you kick up an extra end, I'd buy it. I'd also loan the end out to help complete just the rod, if someone wants to make a couple. There are different styles but it appears I have the type pictured ( minus one end ) Tmorsher@icloud.com

Got it James, thanks for the pic. We'll see what Bob says. In the meantime, another member has contacted me about a slightly different brace, he is going to send me pictures of his.

If all else fails, I can make the parts if I have patterns.

Thanks to Jay's timely post of his accessory index, I now know that the brand of brace I am looking for is a "Star" brace:

Thanks, Jay! :-)

Thanks Harry, yes, I could probably fabricate one fairly easily, but I'm willing to wait a bit and see if I can get a complete original one, or assemble an original from bits and pieces that various folks have.

I got an email from Bob Bergstadt, he thinks he has two non-matching fender clips, hopefully he'll be willing to drag them out of storage and send me pictures of them.

What I was really hoping for was a PM from Jay telling me that he has six original sets in the original boxes and he could be convinced to let me pry one set out of his hands. :-)

I'm also hoping that one of the Ebay sellers that lurks on the forum will put a complete set on Ebay soon. :-)

Mark, sent you photo's, Bob


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mark Strange - Hillsboro, MO on Monday, December 05, 2016 - 03:44 pm:

Thanks Bob, I got your email with pics and sent you a reply. Although neither of your end brackets exactly matches the Star brand setup, it looks like one of them could be modified to match.

I'll hold out a little longer in the hopes of finding a complete, matching set before I try to assemble one out of pieces or attempt to fabricate something.

Thankyou everyone for your patience.

Tim, I will forward Bob's email to you so that you can see his two non-matching end brackets. If you want to buy his and modify one of them to match what you have, go right ahead, don't worry about jumping ahead of me. :-)

Tim, I just sent you another email with Bob's pictures attached.

Hi, I happen to have one. I had no idea what it was. It came in about 3000 lbs of model T parts. I couldn't figure out what It was Till Now. If some one needs it, make me an offer. Bill

Glad I could help, Tim. Hoping to get some pics from Bill of his setup. :-)

Bill, I got your PM saying that you didn't get my PM, so I sent an email to the address you gave me.

It got bounced back as undeliverable, so on a hunch I changed the "e" in your email address to an "r" and sent the email again, please let me know if you got it, thanks.

Mark, I did get your PM. I took some pictures to show the fender brace. It looks different than the original picture. It is very nicely designed with left and right threads on the ends. There are 4 sided cones that lock under the inner lip of the fender. It did fit my 20 coup nicely. It did not fit my 16 or 25. there are 2 flats (1 on each side) to tighten the brace.

Thanks Bill. I just checked my email, no pics yet.

I'm willing to wait for a "Star" brand style of brace to turn up, I like the way the end pieces follow every bump in the contour of the fenders. :-)

Bill, I sent you an email offer for it, thanks! :-)

James,

I sent you a PM.

Thanks to Bill and MTFCA for the "Star" style brace.

Several members sent me pics of similar braces they had for sale, I would encourage them to list their braces in the classifieds (with pics), I'm sure another member would be interested in them. :-)

My brace is spoken for pending payment.Thanks MTFCA

Bill Crosby, I got your PM indicating you had emailed me multiple times with no response - I checked my inbox and spam folder and don't see your earlier emails, so I just sent you an email and a couple of PMs. I will PM you again with my phone number if you want to call me and skip all of this email runaround, thanks.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mark Strange - Hillsboro, MO on Saturday, December 17, 2016 - 10:07 pm:

Thanks for the call Bill, you should have payment now.

I sent you a little extra to cover any Paypal fees and to compensate for your trouble. :-)
