    Matthew, how in the world could you give 400 points to that '41?? Everyone knows that the fender welting should be body color!! Back to Judging 101 for you!
    Seriously I know the car and the owner, nicely done....but the welting should be body color.

            At least he has a few more years in him to get it right!

                Richard - I know that the rear fender welting should be painted body color on 1947-1952 cars, except for some dark colors - especially black. When did Studebaker start the practice of painting rear fender welt body color? I think that it was unpainted on my 1940 President, but it was a black car so that doesn't count.

                        Gary; At least as early as 1931 and probably earlier. Remember most cars in the pre 1931 era had black or dark fenders. Images above show a 1931 President Model 90 Brougham. The only year that they did [u]not</u> paint the fender welt body color on light colored cars was the 1946 Skyway Champions.

                            Thanks for the response, Richard.
                            I thought that the idea on the '47 to '52 models was to make the rear fenders appear to be part of the body rather than a stuck on extra, as on older cars.
                            As you point out, Studebaker went out of their way much earlier to make the cars appear nicer.
                            I can remember an awards banquet that I ran (probably in the '70s) where an AACA "expert" insisted that no postwar (WW II) American company would have painted the fender welt.
                            Problems come up from people that have basically original cars that appear to have fender welt without paint. It is hard to convince some that the factory paint wore/polished off in the past half a Century.
