The hole you see in the photo, (which has a white piece of paper in it) which is present on both sides of the car, has been created by either an incorrect part or improper placement of the fender, splash apron, or hood shelf.

It appears that all three of these parts have been mounted correctly.

How can I determine the cause of this problem?

Thanks.

Well, I am no expert on '22 coupes per se. Ford never did try to get the "fit" and the "finish" "just so" on the black era Ts. I think most of them have a bit of a gap in that location.

Funny you should bring this up. My son pointed out that same kind of gap yesterday on my 1924 Coupe. I've always thought it was supposed to be that way. The gap is on both sides. My son had never noticed it before yesterday. So, I do not have an answer for you other than to say it is that way on at least one other Coupe.

Thanks guys. I guess that is one less problem for me to worry about.

My '22 Centerdoor has the same gap and it came that way straight from the factory.

Ah, I see the problem--you have a white piece of paper behind the hole! A black piece would solve the problem!
:-)

I have an '18 centerdoor that is original that has never been restored. I will check it tomorrow and see if it too has the same hole. Good stuff guys, this has been informative.
