Can someone with '37 115/120 Convertible or Coupe give me the measurement of the from the back bottom edge of the fender to bottom back edge of the tail light base, along the fender peak?

The replacement fenders I got are from a sedan and do not have the hole drilled. I can't just the measurements from my old fenders since they were altered.

Kevin,

I used a sewing tape to better sit against the slight curvature of the fender and I did confirm with my Stanley FatMax that the measurements aligned. I'm getting about 12" from bottom of the fender peak to the bottom of the rear light.

I get the same measurement. My fenders show no evidence of bodywork or damage.

Does anyone have a picture of what the tail light reenforcement plates look like under the fender? Since my fenders are off a sedan, they are missing, and the prior custom fenders didn't have them either. I just need to get an idea of the general shape and construction so I can fabricate something functional.

I couldn't stand that green fender on the car anymore. So I pulled it off, straightening and welded some minor tears along the bottom flange. I removed all the scale rust and mud from the inside of the fender and then shot the entire thing in red oxide primer just to give it something. Then I painted the fender in rustoleums finest black rattle can paint making sure to do the worse possible job I could. When I get back from NZ I'll scuff it and scrape it just right to let the red oxide show through in places to compliment the rest of the car.

I saw those from Will. It will have to wait for my return from NZ as I don't want anything coming to the house while we are away.
