  • How to best install fender welt

    Is it best to totally remove the rear fenders and cut a hole in the fender welt for the body bolt to go through? Or another way I've been told is to leave the fenders on, just cut a vertical slit all the way down the welt where each bolt is, slide it down between the fender and body, then tighten.

    Don't know which would give a better, long-lasting fit.

    I'd just loosen it and cut a gap to slide over each bolt. Making holes isn't gonna buy you anything.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
