So you want to how the restoration of the
for my E-M-F Automobile is going?
Well, you have found the right page.

The Rear Fenders are equally as bad, but I think that there is enough left to be able to piece them back together. I actually have two extra sets of fenders from a 5-Passenger touring that I can use to help repair my rear fenders.
The rear fenders for the 1912 E-M-F's appear to be different between all the body styles. The Demi Tonneau that I have has beads in the fenders that run parallel to each other starting at the running board and extending all the way up the fender to the back where they come together. They 5-Passenger Touring fenders are different from these in that the inner bead (toward the body) follows the contour of the body. The 1912 Roadsters are different from both of these in that the angle of the fender from the running board up and over the wheel is not as sharp, giving it more of a "racy" look.
If anyone has a set of rear fenders for a 1912 E-M-F Demi tonneau that they would like to trade for two sets of rear fenders for a 5-Passenger Touring, or would just like to sell outright, please contact me! If I have to, I will cannibalize the 5-Passenger rear fenders to fix my Demi Tonneau fenders.
The Splash Aprons are rough, but have enough left for patterns. I think I can make new splash aprons myself.
The good news in all this fender talk is that I found a set of original Front Fenders and bought them. They are not perfect, but they should not need much work. You can see in the pictures the passenger side fender I bought, and the original passenger side front fender off of my car. Can you understand why I wanted to buy these fenders? I figure they will save me MONTHS of work in the restoration.
I will probably not be doing much with these fenders for some time to come, but I wanted to get this page started since I had the pictures taken. I'll post more when there is more to post.
