| : Hello,|
: I've got a 31 S/W four door that I am considering putting dual side mounted spares. I see kits available to modify my existing fenders with the fender wells for the spares. Do you think this is a good idea? Or should I consider buying the new fenders with the wells built in?My fenders are in good shape but need some work anyway and I see in most catalogs that even the new fenders need some cosmetic work to get then to fit properly. Secondly, I noticed that Henry Ford put the provisions for side mounts on the frame already, but the splash aprons will have to be cut. Difficult? Will the splash aprons need to be removed to bolt on the spare tire support arm to the frame?
: Any and all information would be appreciated!
Hi Dean.I put sidemount wells in the fenders of my 31 Roadster some time ago.If you want a monumental task, try it.Mine turned out very good, but never again.If your Model A is going to be a "driver", I would suggest you look at welled fiberglass front fenders made by Wescott in Boring Oregon.Probably the best on the market.Sell you "gennies" and maybe you will break even..
