I'm converting an old 1920 heap into a Depot Hack. I have all-new (painted and primed) front fenders, splash guards, running boards, and rear fenders. Also I have the cast iron front fender brackets AND the odd "loop" bolts that are sold to connect the fender to the bracket.
So far, so good.
But I can't figure out how to use the "loop bolts." Exactly how and where do they attach to the fender itself?
I've viewed dozens of photos of Model T's from this era and can't see any evidence of these loop bolts (and their nuts) protruding thru the fender.
I know I'm missing something basic. Can anyone direct me to an exploded drawing of these assembled parts?
Here's a picture of the underside of the passenger side front fender on my 1923 touring / pickup conversion, does this help?
BINGO! I **KNEW** there must be another part I needed. Your photo shows it clearly. So now I'll start looking for that weird bracket and rivets.
THANKS ever so much!
Richard, fender brackets for almost all of the repo fenders aren't being reproduced. A lot of guys have thrown away their old fenders thinking their new ones would have them in them.
I just sold 3 old fenders that I kept for the brackets. Sold them for $10.00 each.
Just look around.
I have used and some NOS front fender brackets and a few rears also firstname.lastname@example.org
