Hi All
I am fitting the spears to the front Guards /Fenders & door of my 1950 Styleline as it does not have any at the moment. I would just like to check the location with you folk. Is it correct that it points to the Center of the head light or just a little lower than Center? Is it parallel to the sill all the way? A measurement from the under side of the door moulding trim at the front of the door handle to the Center of the spear would be helpful. Cheers, Stuart.

It points to the center of the headlight. I can get measurements later today.

Thanks, Dean. Did you ever remove your skirts? My grandfather had a '49 and called them wheel pants...
