fender welting???

I have a 26 T that I will be disassembling to strip it of lacquer paint. What I want to know is can I put the car back together without putting the welting between the body parts?
Thank you Gary

Thank u
I just didn't know if there was any drawbacks to doing it that way ,My car is all metal with fiberglass fenders,should I put anything between the parts,or just bolt them together?

It would seem to be a good idea to replace. I wold think it provides some vibration dampening and wear of two part rubbing together, chipping paint, leading to rust etc. No por, just my opinion. By the way, welting is readily available. Check ebay.
Good luck.

Use the welting, if you dont want ut to show, trim the round bit off.....Saves on squeaks and paint rubbing off.

You don't think the nylon washer idea would work then?

You would get water splashing up between the joints.

Instead of the thick welting you could use some thin rubber, about 1/32".

Could make removal a bit of a chore. Use a bycycle inner tube and cut it to fit.

put the welting in from the back. it will still do it's job but you wont see the welt. may have to trim 1/2 in off.

Or use a urethane seam sealer-this avoids having an open crevice that'll hold moisture but will make removal of the fenders a PITA. Another option would be to apply a self adhesive gasket strip to the body then bolt the fenders on, two sided adhesive tape would also work.
