Yeah... Rootlieb is the best!! Their products are Perfect. Many have been attached to Stynoski and AACA Sr. Winners. All four of my ‘14 runabout fenders are from Rootlieb. When they’re new and perfect they can be powdercoated gloss black so gravel won’t chip the underside...
One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.

I bought new fenders, runningboards and splash aprons for my 1909 Touring. Everything fit well and looked superb.

I bought a set of Rootlieb fenders for my '14. After hearing so many stories about how everything would need to be fit to the car, and how difficult it was, I was pleasantly shocked to find that everything fit perfectly just as it was. All I had to do was drill the mounting bolt holes.

My hood, splash aprons and running boards are Rootlieb. I have been very satisfied with the results. So have the judges who have seen my car.
