Rear fender steel thickness on Series 14

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know the correct gauge thickness of the rear fenders on a Series 14?

I need to order steel but finding it difficult to measure and need to replace some rusted portions.

I don’t know what year your talking about but early 30 s cars where generally 19 gauge,some maybe 18 but 18 is pretty heavy,you’ll probably have to order it. They  stock 20 gauge not much call for 19,   Dave.

USA 1010 mild steel, 16 gauge. .0598 inch thickness for Franklin fenders.  Franklin used 20 gauge for the front/rear and running board splash aprons.
