Inner Fender Panels

I need to replace the inner fenders on my 31 ford coupe. On the bottom where the patch panels meet the sub frame, do I attach them to the subframe?

Thanks for your guidance.

I am thinking the same thing. I have to assume he is talking about the wheel well patch panels and how they would attach to the body framing at the bottom.

As I remember they fold under the body subframe and welded to it. I seem to remember they actually folded under it like a door skin hem. That channel is facing down isn't it?

As a partsman, I think I get at least one conversation per day that starts out with: "I don't know what you call it, but ..."

So yes ... thank you I-Phone!

Yeah Stude, am sure that is what he is talking about.

It's all good, I sure as hell don't know what to call everything even in the profession I have been in for 35 years! At work when I am going a supplement on a job, after the car is torn down we go over it to make sure we catch and replace or repair every single thing damaged I will often call parts a "Thingie" in my notes. With all the damn names they use, how the heck can I keep up with them? And the different brands of cars call things different names!

They have a lip - it attaches to the sub frame. Ford only spot welded or riveted them, depending on the model, year or factory. They were never seal welded. That seam is an entry point for water - which means rust again in a few years. Spot weld then seal.

These on my '31'A' roadster are spot welded then sealed:
