This won't be my last request for advice. The Tudor I'm restoring came completely disassembled. I'm getting ready to attach the rear fenders to the body before installing the side upholstery. My question is: is there any type of material that should be sandwiched between the fender and the body to seal out moisture? I have some restoration information but I haven't seen anything on this.
Another question: I'm installing a new top and the instructions don't say where the top vinyl ends. Does it wrap around under the wood frame above the doors?
Any help will be appreciated.
Nothing between the fenders and body. The top material just fold over the top wood to the edge and is covered with the drip rail. It does not fold under the wood frame.
If anything goes between the fenders & the body, it would be a piece of friction tape to keep the parts from rattling or squeaking as one goes down the road.
The space between the two is a moisture trap. Anything added to that space could trap even more moisture. My '25 Tudor doesn't seem to have any squeaks coming from that area. I put nothing there but paint.
Richard makes a very good point!
