The front holes are for low radiator and High, looks more like a sedan fender.

Hard to tell for the light but a sedan has a squared off style apron. KGB

Thanks Joe! could this apron be for a 23 or a 24 tudor sed? this apron was on my car when I bought it and looked like a nice fit. the reason I am asking is I was was looking to buy one for the passenger side and the aprons listed for a 24 tudor sed don't look like mine, but the catalog pictures aren't to clear. thanks, Ken

Rootlieb calls them splash aprons and the one you have pictured is a 17-23 sedan. The 24 is quite different. Rootlieb reproduces all the models of "aprons", they are in Turlock CA.

Just Google "Rootieb model t slash aprons" and they are all pictured there.

Tom is using the wrong terminology!

Jack, my 24 tudor has them, and they are shown in Bruce's book, page 341. I have the original ND paper work that shows engine # for April of 24. Lots of controversy over 23-25 sedans as they were making many changes during this time period. KGB

I have been a T owner of a 24 tudor for almost two years now and over that period of time and research for correctness to my car, I think the splash aprons have the most controversy of what is correct for it. I have seen a lot of 23- 24 and 25 T`s with both styles. Ken

Apron or shield are readily interchangeable:
A SHIELD is intended to protect, such as engine shields to protect the engine from debris and foreign matter.
APRON can be used in several contexts, in the case of a Model "T" the most appropriate is to protect the undercarriage from view, similar to covering a table with an APRON to cover the table legs and persons legs from view. Apron seems to be the most appropriate.

I owned a completely original '25 Tudor and it had squared splash shields.
