felt around the fenders

The felt around my back and front fenders how far do they go around the fender? Do they start at the front of the fender and go around to the rear of the fenders?

Re: felt around the fenders

Just because Old IHC had a bad original idea is not a good reason to continue with it. Felt, if in fact that is what you have, holds moisture and will contribute to rusting the fender to body contact points.
There are better options. I have used a rubber like fender welting on my projects for over 30 years. This product is so much beter than the OEM crap used on the L, R, and S trucks. I bought mi welting in bulk at a restoration store 45 minutes from here. Bob Drake Reproductions in Grant's Pass Oregon sells this, also. https://www.bobdrake.com/

Re: felt around the fenders

all the trucks I've had used rubber welting not felt between fender and cab, and between rear fenders and box, is your truck a U.S. made one?
