Default 33/34 fiberglass fender braces?

Ok building a 33/34 fiberglass car and wanting to know what to use as front fender braces and also are there two braces on each front fender? Will braces for a steel fender work due to the glass thickness? Thanks for any help..Keith

The steel braces are your only option. You may have to slightly modify them to fit the glass fenders, but it depends on the fender.

I'd say THREE braces per front fender. I guess it depends on how you count them.
1. The 'big' brace at the front, also supports h/l stand.
2. Short 'rod' brace at front, goes from frame top, to the 'big' brace.
3. Rear brace from frame to skirt area on fender.
