Fender beads seem to be a broad subject of discussion and I have seen many restored cars with them "all wrong" and some missing. From our car and one other I have found the fender beads to be in two (2) diameters 3/8" and 1/4". The major bead along wings was always painted body color and is 3/8" in diameter. The vertical bead at the bonnet side panel and radiator is 1/4" in diameter. On many cars this bead is the wrong size or is missing. The bead extends down the side of the panel to where is intersects with the fender bead, approx. 7.0" long. The lower end is tucked into the fender bead.
