    Need Front and Rear Dust Shields

    Hi Guys

    I'm looking for some front and rear dust shields. I misplaced mine when I originally dismantled the wheels. Please e-mail me with details if you can help.

    Thanks
    Paul

    For fender wells on my car, I will be going to the local Home Depot to purchase two black trash cans with the proper diameter. I will use 50% of each trash can on each fender well. For the area behind the door scoop I will be using a Chrysler Mini Van front passenger side fender well louver set. The part will be reproduced in fiberglass and attached to the radiators in that area. The trash can will attach to the louvers to complete the proper arch.

    The front will get a similar treatment to ward off the pebbles that will eventually ruin the fiberglass finish if not installed.

    Do you mean the dust shields on the brakes?

    On the fender wells, I couldn't get the darn trashcans to work worth a flip! It was going to take four of them instead of the two I thought, my little shop needed the trash cans anyway.
    I even tried poster board and then glass it in. I did that on the front. It worked but pain in the arse.
    What worked best for me was the good ol sheet metal in a roll. I made poster board templets and used an air sheet metal cutter. Rivited and screwed and black silicone.

    Mark:

    LOL! You know I think he was talking about dust shields for his wheels. I have fender well on my mind this week. I think I might give the poster board template idea a shot then transfer the pattern to sheet metal of some sort. I have some thin stainless steel in the shop that could work. Bondo Bob has an old above ground swimming pool that could work as well.

    I'm looking for dust shields on the brakes / spindles, not wheel wells. I think I threw them out as I probably thought they wouldn't be necessary in the final assembly.
