Re: [FWDLK] fender bulkhead



Gary --
Thanks for the reply. You forced me stop relying on my faulty memory and crawl under the car & look at the problem area. Of course it was not as I remembered it. 
The metal fender splash pan is in place, not missing as I had remembered. The foam gasket between the splash pan & the fender is missing on both sides. Looks like I need to remove the splash pan & see if the grommet is missing. I expect I will need to replace it & the foam pad on both sides.
Thanks for making me take a better look. I'm pretty sure I have seen that foam pad on Andy Bernbalm. Probably other sources as well.
When the weather warms up again, I'll remove the splash pan to investigate the grommet. I'll  probably be talking to you when I get the pan out of the way.
Thanks again
Later.

Hi Bob,

Not to worry in the least.  I have a ’56 Plymouth and I believe the frame & chassis build are quite similar, therefore my Plymouth also has a 2-3” “hole” in the upper chassis behind the wheel well fenderwell/driver side fender that is exposed to air/wind from behind the fender splash pan/fenderwell.  There is/should be a large factory rubber grommet covering this area with a small hole in the center for cab to engine bay wiring.  If this is your port of entry for the chilling wind then you are missing your grommet or it is severely decayed and requires replacement.  I believe I have a spare NROS grommet or you may obtain one from the person that purchased Gary Goers reproduction products.

Folks --

I usually just lurk on this list but today I find myself looking for assistance.

56 DeSoto Firedome 4 door sedan.

I have recently discovered the source of gale force winds coming from behind the dashboard.

The passenger side front fender has a bulkhead (?) with a foam seal between it & the fender. It seals the the passenger compartment from air flow coming from the wheel opening.

My driver side fender doesn't have one. At highway speed, cold air pours out from behind the dashboard through openings in the firewall.

So, I'm looking for a part I don't know the name of that fits inside the driver side front fender & attaches to the firewall.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for any leads.
