Hi all, I was at the Big 3 swap meet in San Diego this weekend, and happened to stumble across a set of fender skirts for my '56. They were in great shape, and I got them both and the mounting hardware for $100, which I thought was a pretty solid deal (I've seen them go on ebay for more in worse condition). Anyway, I am wondering if anyone has any experience mounting these things. I was doing some research online, and found this page which goes into some detail around the skirts and installation: http://www.pontiacsafari.com/L1Garage/SkirtBrackets/index.htm However, the pictures show some pre-drilled mounting holes and tabs in the curved lip inside the fender. I inspected my fenders, and mine don't have any tabs up inside the top of the fender, nor do I see any holes anywhere in the lip where mounting hardware might install. I guess I might have to drill some holes, but I don't really even know where I should drill them and where these brackets mount up. And what is the metal rod that moves up and down in the middle of the skirts for? I think it's used to remove/lock them in place, but I'm not quite sure how it works. Finally, I've read about the rubber seal that goes on top of the skirts in between them and the fender. I see that repros are available online, do you think these are worth getting? My fenders are nicely painted metalflake green, so maybe I should to preserve the paint? I've attached some pictures to show the skirts and the hardware, and my fender well on the passenger side, but I doubt that pic is any help. I did test fit the skirts and they are perfect fits size-wise. Thanks all!
