Inner fender splash shields rubber replacement

Continuation of my 37 115c work.
The inner splash cover bottom rubber edge was hard and basically disintegrated when we pulled the front clip.

Research found a cloth impregnated material from STEELE RUBBER and rivets from Tacoma screw.

I was able to do a fairly close replication of the edge and made a templet for the piece on 1" chart paper.

Attached are photos and information on the project.

Product info

Tubular rivets, See photo

Hope this helps on other restoration projects around the world.

I had to cut the rivets cross wise to allow me to hand set them with a center punch and large drift punch, I do not have a press so this allowed me to get a good compression of the rivets.

Hi Larry,

That's a great tip for cinching the rivets down; I'm going to borrow that innovation with your permission! LOL Also, I'm a sailor and in repairing canvas, there is an inexpensive kit available for knurling over the rivets of male and female canvas snaps, that I think would work well for this application. It uses a standard pair of vice grips which can be adjusted for 'depth' as one deals with longer and shorter stemmed rivets. Worth a look. Chris.
