poncho62 Another problem with not using the welting is, if the edge of the fender is not absolutely perfect, it will really show bad. The bead on the welting will hide these little flaws.....Something to consider.

yragat OK thanks,I sure don't want something that would hold moisture

baddbob You might want to search around at auto and truck parts stores for a universal seal/weatherstrip, the stuff is available in different widths and thicknesses and comes on a roll to be cut to lengths. A closed cell foam would be best and won't hold any moisture, you'll want it fairly thin so it compresses.

yragat I like the self adhesive gasket idea,but never saw it,where can it be bought?

baddbob 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.

yragat somethingelse to consider!

shine 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.

yragat That sounds good,maybe I'll try that

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

302 Z28 Instead of the thick welting you could use some thin rubber, about 1/32".

poncho62 You would get water splashing up between the joints.

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

poncho62 Use the welting, if you dont want ut to show, trim the round bit off.....Saves on squeaks and paint rubbing off.
