Inner fenders/splash shields 1937 40s coupe


Recommended Posts

My coupe came as jigsaw puzzle. As I finally get it near to paint the fellow building is asking about inner fenders. I don't believe the 40 series cars had metal ones like the bigger series cars. Was there any type of splash shield?

I dont have any spare splash shields from my 1937 series 60, but i did just sandblast the pair of them and could take a picture of them as they would be very easy to replicate, atleast function wise. there is a stamped design into them that i'm assuming is to make them more rigid, but something similar could be done with a power hammer, bead roller, etc.

My '37 Special has these square metal splash shields in the rear fenders.  There is a circular design stamped into them.

 

I can get you detailed photos of the attachments....  Let me know what you need.

Restored, inside the left rear fender.  I had my shields powder coated during restoration.
