:oops: What problem did you run into Floyd.....
There are a couple of sayings that come to mind, like "We look but we just don't see." "Can't see the Forrest for the trees." And my usual, "Sometimes reality just walks up and smacks you on the side of the head." It's the rivit spacing that is different on these....just didn't notice it, was too busy on the overall project...It became apparent when I started to layout the pinstriping.
Here is the front 1936 fender......

Here is the rear fender on it......

But it did originally have a 36 fender on it, here's the rear braces......

I'm going to have to think about a solution that I can live with.....

Interesting Floyd...... So it’s not the location of the fender braces that’s different, but the spacing on the fender rivets. Is that correct?

From my limited knowledge, yes. I just checked all of my other fenders, and they have wider spacing.......except my Elgin Curved Bar....same spacing.....Hmmmmm.

Well.....been wondering why it's taking so long with the chrome....They are usaully very quick on the turn around... I called them Friday to inquire but forgot they are closed on Fridays.....

On a side note, I get tons of spam/scam calls from 1 time #s or ones that leave pre-recorded messages, so I spend a little time blocking #s..

So I decided to go look at the info on their #, and low and behold....I had inadvertently blocked their #......

Yep......................I'm officially an Idiot......Plating has been done for a while...
One of the things I was worried about was the rims....(Quite expensive to plate) The rims were pitted like the rear fender in earlier pics, and the young lady said she wasn't sure if they would show or not when done....I picked all the pieces up today and the first things she brought out were the rims. Even she said how nice they turned out....all I could say was "WOW!!!!!!!!" More to come.....


The front hub:D:p:):sunglasses:

All the striping is done.....not sure about it though.....I had to go measure it.......it is less than 1/8" in width (7/64") but it looks like 1/4" stripes due to the contrast I guess.:nomouth: It's going to have to grow on me......
Here's a few more pieces of jewelry......:sunglasses:

I didn't want to start putting it together until my wheels were done....I've been going back and forth on paying big $$$$$$ to have someone do them...I don't like fresh painted things to sit in the stand very long....
I decided no time like the present to learn how to myself.....waiting on spokes to arrive...:oops:
