Good Day all, work is continuing on rust repairs. left side floor is complete now, other than painting. and the rocker is fitted, still have to tack it in place

going to work on front fenders next. found some NOS Packard fenders that should work nicely. will have to transfer the inner wheel well over. some minor modifications are needed to fit the Executive. plugging some holes, drilling some new ones.

My question today is....what is the little tab( circled in red) for on the inner fender wheel well?
there is one on each side in approximately the same location.

The pcs over the doors?
I had one bad one, I got a piece from a club member from a sedan and plan to trim it to fit. Another option perhaps?

Thanks HH56, mine appear to have been painted all black. I have no idea if that was original or they did it(so many moons ago) when they sprayed the whole car black
I do appreciate the tips on how to paint them.

Seeing how I have to drive 2.5 hrs to drop pistons off, thought I would drop some stuff off at the platers. another 1 hr drive further.
taking my horn ring, the trunk and front grille emblems and headlamp doors,script

Question: the aluminum pc on the back of the headlamp doors are painted black. should this be a flat black, semi-gloss or gloss?

Also we are unsure if the plater will be able to accurately duplicate the "goldish" color of the circle emblems. will wait and see I guess

I want to give a big shout out, and 2 thumb's up to Kanters. I ordered a engine rebuild kit and my engine builder had some issues with 4 pistons, not quite to spec.

Kanter was very good to send me a new set, quite awesome of them.
