My 41 had fender welt that was visible. It was painted the color of the car.

There is an original Packard photo of a convertible coupe front on page 4 of the 42 photo archive at Packardinfo.   It is a low res version of one supplied by the Detroit Public Library so I won't post it here.  The library will sell high res photos and it may be possible to determine fender welt details on that larger photo.  If anyone is interested the Detroit library item is EB01e236.  Here is a tiny portion of that photo but you can see the full front version at packardinfo.

     Joe....All 1940-42 Packards use black fender welt. The 1941&42's use welt with a bead on the rear fenders and welt without a bead on the front fenders...........
