I'm gathering parts to re-assemble the front fenders and grille on my '49. There are a couple of brackets I can't figure out. I'm sure that when I disassembled the car several years ago, I thought for sure I would remember where they were attached. I've searched the shop manuals, over 180 plates and even the service councilors looking for a picture of this piece. I know it's the area of the grille and fenders. Anyone of you Series 22 or 23 guys happen to know where it goes?

Thanks for the help!

Joe

They look like they may be the pieces circled in red.

If not, see if they will fit between the inner edge of the rear flat splash panel over to the bottom of the fender somewhat along the path of the red line -- either in front or behind the flat panel. The 47 has a similar looking but longer piece behind the panel going over to a hole in the fender bottom edge.

It goes between the fender and the top of the rear splash panel and is actually shown in the parts list illustration but not labelled.

Howard,

Too short for that area, but you got me looking closer at that plate. They were stored with my grille parts so I thought they went in the front. But looking closely at the picture you attached, I believe it is the piece to the upper left of the air duct hole in the splash panel. I was trying to fit it in the wrong area. It bolts to the splash panel and to the horizontal edge on the back of the fender. There are 2 holes in that area of the fender so I believe that's where it fits..

Thanks for your help!

Joe
