Bought a collection of parts and have several unusable fenders, should I remove the brackets before I send them to the hereafter?

Yes

Rex -- Lots of folks are looking for the brackets, since some of Rootlieb's fenders are sold without them.

Save the fender brackets! They are not being reproduced.
Anything for T's and especially fender brackets and a lot of the body brackets that are not being reproduced I always save. Many old busted up fenders have been thrown away when the brackets should have been kept.

Our fenders for the 1906-1916 Fords come with brackets. The 26-27 fronts come with brackets. The 1917 to 1925 crown style fenders DO NOT. Hang on to them.

Tom-
I have often wondered why your '17-'25 fenders do not come with brackets.

I'm sure that your guys would be able to rivet original brackets onto your reproduction fenders much better than the average restorer would be able to. If it would be too difficult for you to come up with the brackets, maybe they could be furnished by the customer.

Just a thought.

Rex,
I'm not a body man, but, I've used all different parts of fenders! When I got my TT, it had a triangular piece missing from the apron on one of the front fenders. It was a lot easier for me to weld in a piece cut from a junk fender than to try to start with a flat piece of sheet metal and get the correct reveal and contours. I've taken "useless" fenders with the few inches that mounts to the running board rusted away and spliced in pieces from mangled, wrecked fenders and made good ones. And, radiator shells are the easiest thing in the world to splice. My point is, old sheet metal isn't heavy enough to be worth a lot as scrap, so, I'd rather hang on to the old junk in case I, or a friend ever needs some of it, than to sell it to the scrap yard for a dollar.
