1930 DeSoto CF questions

Looks like I would need 4. 

This is what they did and what I need. If the square shoulder had been removed they would have pulled into the holes. 20200324_214532.thumb.jpg.3442ea931369144f41076a2475013dc3.jpg20200324_214541.thumb.jpg.f4ca04913a79483e1655c447ba4a4de5.jpg

I will try to remove four of them carefully so as to be re-used.

If it isn't working out please don't do it. It's not worth a lot of effort. I can make something to replace these carriage bolts. Just thought there might be some replacements out there.  

Thank you.

I have sold and removed some before. It should not be much of a problem.

Well if the items I just sent do not match the originals, I have a money back policy, including shipping back and forth.

With a closer look, it looks like the flattened out type bolts are the items you need. Oops. Just send the package back for a full refund if they will not work.

I think the carriage type can be ground to fit better . You do not see anyway . There on back side . But to each their own . I am fussy

too .

I'll see how they fit. At least they don't have threads that can wear on things inside the wheel. I can put them in the lathe and reshape the heads. Will know more after seeing them.

A kind gentleman offered me a Chrysler fender. After checking is was found that they weren't the same but a section might be usable. 

Received the section today along with tail light bracket. Was going to go fishing but just had to see if the fender could be made usable again.

As a refresher this is what I started with. 20200302_154230.thumb.jpg.daf25dbeff39b0baefbed22389aaefa8.jpg

 

The radius of fenders didn't match.

So a pie shaped section was remove just above the bead and the radius changed. Also the pieces were section diagonally to better blend them together.

And this is where the project stands as of now. A couple of rust spots need to be replaced but they won't be visible.
