47 continental question

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

Another quick question .

Is there fender welt between the rear bumper valance and the body ?

If so, where does it end? At the body/ fender or continue to the end of the valance.

Thanks,

Dennis

I checked the Lincoln Continental Authenticity Manual and it mentioned only welt at the fenders. When I removed the rear valance

from my '48 LC Coupe there was no traces of welting material. I don't think anyone had ever removed this before me. I may

install 2 pcs. about 8" long on each side with the beading tucked under, probably wrong but; gives a finished look

I don't know if welting was used there, but it was common practice to use an anti-squeek material between body parts.

 

Restoration Specialties sells this material. Match the width to the flange on the valance and use the 1/8" thickness material.

Thanks for the replies. I installed it with two short pieces of welt between the body and valance.

Looks good and looks right. Who knows?
