fender welt. I'm assuming it was not original on trucks...does anyone use it? advantages/disadvantages?

You are correct. Welt was not used by the factory but it makes for a nice clean look on the fenders.

Is a restoration ever finished?

I am going to use it on my 66 resto. I like the looks of it. Friend of mine who paints says it will hold paint as long as it is in place first so that is what I am going to do.

I think my body panels are going to line up well, but for 50 bucks it is going to make sure it looks good.


1966 C-10 Step Side. 283, 4spd, 3.73 gear. 60K miles prior to restoration. 507 Paint Code. Currently in 10,000 pieces.
Transmission is done! Rear Suspension is done! Wheels are done! Bed bodywork is done! Soon to order a 383 crate.

I have to chime in, when I removed the front fenders on my 1954 3604, there was this beautiful ocean green paint, and a "rubber gasket" between the fender and the cowl. I did some research and found that part number 609725 was available at Chevs of the 40"s, die cut with correct hole spacing. In the FAM , section 11, sheet 1 illustration references anti-squeak on Sheet 9.00. Sheet 9.0 shows anti-squeak ( gasket ) between fender and cowl , # 3685575. That part number was superseded to part number 609725 per the 1950 Master Parts Catalog. Below is from the Master Parts List. Hope this helps in the discussion and no, there is not anti-squeak on the rear fenders originally.

Not sure where you would use it on a '66 unless its maybe a stepside, but it makes sense on the old open fender trucks and cars.

Ronnie, that makes sense and I have seen anti rattle gaskets for the running boards for my '37 also. what I'm referring to is welt that actually has an exposed round bead that runs between fender and body. Mine will have black fenders and I would just get black welt and use it when installing the painted fenders. I've seen it painted in place on some cars at shows and because its plastic of sorts, the paint is often cracked with time. Not a good look.

I'd think that black would work on most applications. I've seen several trucks, including red, yellow and blue paint jobs with the black and it "looked right" to me. I'm going to use that style on the rear fenders of my 54'.
