I am looking for the rear fender T strips which mount on the front of the rear fender at the top and join the rear fender to the body. I have seen them advertise before, but don't know the part number nor can find them in any catalogs or books. I am willing to buy used ones or new ones.

I have a pair of NOS that you can have for postage. Let me know.

I haven't seen the repros from Classic Enterprises but I suspect both ends are squared. The originals have a rounded end that goes to the rear.

The rendering that is in Jeffs post doesn't look like the NOS ones in your picture. I have to do this job also and I am not quite sure what kind of animal I will be dealing with. By the way could any one give me a "how to" for removing the knob from my Hawk dash heater control switch?

This is completely OFF TOPIC, but here you go:
That would depend on the year of Hawk and which control it is.

If it is the Fan Toggle Switch, they will not remove.

If it is the Temp. Control -Cable to Water Valve, Slide Lever, the Knob has to be wiggled up and down while pulling to release the spring clip inside, unless you have a bent ice pic that will release it from the back end.

I know it was a hijack and I plead guilty. I feel as if I am filling up the forums with a lot of new posts and offer my apologies if I have offended and broken protocol. Answer is appreciated StudeRich. Dash is a 56' or57' GH. Dismantling for paint and new dash pad.

I think I have several sections of these that could be used to make a couple. Maybe a couple of full length, not sure. If you can use them e-mail me your address and I sent them to you.

I just checked and I have a full length set. There is some rust on the lower sections but the upper part is fine so they could be cleaned up and used.
They are pointed on one end. I also have a couple of short sets maybe some one knows what they fit. Maybe a four door.

IIRC, Jerry Forrester just put a pair (from Classic) on and made that same comment.
I seem to recall he said he rounded his ends a bit before installation.

I was checking part numbers on these strips. There seems to be several depending on model and year. They probably only differ in length. The classic probably can be cut to length.

Terry I did not mean to presume anything. I thought that Alex was covered by an offer of a free set earlier in the post. The ones I need are part #304748P and #304749P.
If you have these and Alex does not need them I would be more than glad to buy them from you.

Measure the ones you need. The ones in the photo are from a 56 GH. which is a different # They are 15 1/2 " long. I also have four(4) that are 12 3/4" long. I have no idea what they fit. I had thought they were sections of a longer one but they are all exactly the same length. One set appears to be have never been installed.

Terry, the slot on my 54' measures right at 16'' end to end. It is what I would call a tight 16". I do not know if the strips are supposed to fill the slot end to end when installed. Maybe someone can help out with this info.

You should need the 15 1/2. I reasonably sure they don't come any longer. On my GH the rear is cover by the check mark trim. Don't know the difference in the part numbers. Maybe something minor. Would like to know what these short ones fit. I 'm going out of town a couple days will get back to you when I return..

ABSOLUTELY NOT! The beauty of the internet is there's room for unlimited numbers of posts and comments, especially from someone trying to learn or make progress! Post all you want, and don't let anyone tell you that you can't:)

The 15-1/2" ones do indeed fit on a C/K. Shorter ones maybe for a sedan body??

The tapered or pointed end of the strip goes to the rear of the car.

In addition to rusting out, they are prone to cracking. The flat top cracks off the vertical portion that slips between the fender and body shell. Its just a piece of flat sheet metal that has been folded over on itself. The tight bends cause some strain hardening so its a bit brittle.

There was originally a bead of "goop" or strip caulk (dum dum) to seal the strip to body and strip to fender.

Thank you very much Jeff. The pictures and your description of the part itself clarify the whole picture for me. I would most certainly buy Terry's if Alex does not need them. I will not be needing them as soon as I thought I would, due to the untimely passing of my good friend and paint and body man last night. I will put the Stude on hold for a while, but continue to attain the parts I need to finish the work. My world lost a good and loyal friend last night. John was a hot rodder and he really loved the Stude. He was giving it his best work last evening when his heart failed him. Thank you all for your help and patience with this new member.
