Default 1928-1929 Splash Aprons

I have a pair of 1928-1929 splash aprons that have "round holes" for attaching the front fenders.

All of the others I have seen have "oblong holes".

Did they come both ways like that OR do I have a pair of the repro types?

Thanks.

Pluck

Pluck,


'29 Special Coupe splash apron.. as I understand, the holes were punched "slotted", to allow for minor adjustment during fender/RB/splash apron alignment during assembly, then tightened after final alignment. I had to raise the body for DMV, and to my knowledge these aprons had not been off before that. kb

Pluck..




This photo shows the "oblong" hole pattern. I believe this apron had never been removed by previous owners. kb

Steve I don't think every 28 29 splash apron came out of the same stamping press. You know the production numbers ( my guess over 2 million) you my have originals with just round holes. If they look good other than the holes I would use them.
