I am trying to find the "welting" with the beading that goes between fenders and running boards. When I disassembled my 1927 coupe there was a "plastic' or "rubber" welting that ran the length of the running board and fender joint to, I assume, further deaden "metal to metal" rattling. The beading is visable above the joint. Does it come in a roll that would be cut down to the proper length? Any ideas who might have this? I've tried Langs and Macs but they dont recognize the item...at least as I am describing it.
Look in Snyder's catalog for fender welt. It's on the Model A side. There are two kinds, the fuel tank welt is a smaller bead.
Thanks Tom...Didn't look past the "T" section in Snyders catalog. The welting on the gas tank I'm
not familiar with. My tank sits underneath the cowl. Is there some welting that I should install somewhere on the tank? If so where?
I understand there is a pad the covers the tank top for rattling. Is that available from Snyders too?
Try Mac's catalog 08-09, page 60 Item B5000 or B5000AS
Tom is talking about the size of the welting that is used around the Model A gas tank. The Model A fenders used a little larger welting.You would have to see what size welting worked best for your fenders. 1926-27 Model T's did not use welting for the fenders or running boards. Leon
Thanks Leon,Don, and Tom. Like I said..when I
disassembled my '27 coupe it had welting so I assumed it was original. It was pretty old and
brittle. But sounds like it was an
"aftermarket" add-on by one of its previous owners, since,as Leon said, it wasn't used originally anyway.
