36 Buick Fender Rod.pdf 43.44KB
Looks like you boys have this figured out but here's my input as promised.
I think that threaded hole is for the rod that I described before and is now sketched as attached. I took photos of the rod also but the file size is too big to let me upload. Send me a private email and I should be able to email to you. email@example.com
I think this rod is only used for a non-welled (not sidemount spare) standard fender. The welled fender has a welded brace from the bottom of the well over to this same point on the fender lower edge behind the wheel opening where the rod would otherwise bolt on. Make sense?
I can claim to understand this because (unfortunately) I have a welled fender for the left side and a non-welled fender for the right side. Thanks to Greg himself I am in the process of salvaging a well for the right side and I will cut a hole in my standard fender and weld in this well at some point in the future.
