The attached pictures are of the Speedster
er I have been working for a while now. I have gotten some different fenders to put on it, but I am not sure how to connect them to the car. They look the same as the speedster kits you can get from Mac's. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to mount the fenders? Pictures would be a big help. Any ideas would be great!
It looks like you have a set of torpedo/runabout fenders. I imagine you would want to move the two running board brackets you already have on the car closer together to support the flat portion between the rear and front fender. I assume you could use stock fender irons to attach the two fenders. I could be way off base. nice find on the fenders though. they look great!
p.s. i also notice you are in NC. the NC chapter of HHCA is a great bunch of folks! we do three tours a year. Two weekend tours and one week long tour in the summer. let me know if you are interested and ill give you the info for our secretary!
These are Torpedo / Open Runabout fenders. What Larry has are speedster fenders. They follow the same basic profile from the side, but don't flare out down their length to accommodate a running board splash apron.
Larry, life will be easier if you find a set of earlier style forged fender and running board brackets. Does your rear fender have two brackets? If so, you may need a "butterfly" bracket, which looks similar to two front fender irons joined in one place at the frame end.
I just sent you a private message about the HHCA. I do belong to the Tarheel T'S club. Thanks for your input!
Here's how mine are mounted. The rear brackets are part NO.832 from Lang's. I'm sure they are available elsewhere as well.
Thanks Chris! That is what I was looking for. Should be no problem now!
For those Rootlieb fenders, use original fender brackets for the front. They will have to be heated and re-bent which is not a problem and easy to do. The re-bend will have to follow the contour of the fender. For the rear irons, you can buy the new ones or easily fabricate them using round stock that, again, will be bent to the fender contour and welded to a flat plate that can be bolted to the bottom of the speedster body floor or to the rear crossmember.
