Having two cars the same year is handy, up to a point. The touring was my Fathers and redone in the mid 70's. Some things may not be correct, but there are small stuff. The "new' car is a unrestored Dec of 23 roadster. One of the things on my list od small projects id replacing the wood under the running boards and the bolts. I have already taken the bolt "kit" from Lang's removed the plating on the top of the bolt, turned the diameter down about .050" .060", and re-contoured the top to be a bit less curved. Over the weekend I started to remove the old and replace with the new.

Here is my What The Heck question. My roadster has wood under the rear of the running board where the rear fender bolts to the running board, my touring does not. Anyone else seen this? The new wood kit only comes with 4 blocks not 6, the pack of bolts has 8 short and 8 long bolts.

Just bringing the discussion up.

My early guess here is to just forget the extra block.

on my 24 Fordor I had to use six blocks in order for the fenders to fit without a kink.

Your running boards have two wood blocks only. The fenders use two flat washers between the fender and the running board, unless you have the '25 style fender, which has embossed washers on it.
