I know all of the running board spacers for the 12 model year were 11/16" thick. I'm trying to find out what the size of the rear block was that went between the running board and rear fender? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Bob-
I believe they are all the same thickness, but a little different size. You also might need to whittle some notches where the sheet metal has a fold or where the splash apron fits. I'll try to send you some pics of mine.

Thanks all, I'd been through all the old post and that's when I determined they should be 11/16" thick for my year (1912). I only found one post that stated the size from 07'post. These were measured off a car that was being disassembled and said there were 3 different sizes so don't think they were originals. Sizes were as follows;
Front-2 1/8w x 7 7/8L x1/2" thick (45 bevel on one edge)
Run Board-1 1/2"w x 7 7/8"L x 3/4 thick
Rear Fender 1 1/2" x 7 7/8"L x 1/2" thick
It would appear the thickness of all these spacers was incorrect. anyone have knowledge if the other sizes of the blocks appear correct? Thanks!

Randall Anderson makes new ones.

Actually I don't, but my brother does. I asked him about it and he says they are 9/16" thick.

A complete set of blocks (8 pieces) for one car is 10 bucks, in case anyone's interested.

I meant that the rear fender blocks are 9/16". The other blocks are different.

Thanks for the info, I'm getting the special rear bow tapered piece from him now, I'll get him to put them in the same order. Thanks!
