M151A2 fender repair kit

Postby Litz » July 17th, 2010, 9:05 pm

I was recently told that AM General made a repair kit for the A2 front fenders. It is a piece that replaces the front half of the fender and has to be welded on to the remaining piece.

Has anyone heard of or used such a repair piece? If you have what would the 2 front fender pieces cost?

Thanks,
Litz

We have an A1 that was converted to A2 by someone that has the half fenders bolted on, I'll get some close up photos on monday.

Saturn Surplus has right and left bolt-on replacement front A2 fenders, priced at $48.50 each. Unknown what the shipping would be. Check them out at Saturnsurplus.com under the M151 parts listed under front fenders. Cal

muttguru,

Yes, that fender piece in your picture is what I have in mind. It looks to be the same as the one used in the photo Mr.Recovery posted on the A1.

Is the one in your photo muttguru a bolt on as well, like the one used in Mr.Recovery's photo?

I guess that would then be the same one that Saturn Surplus is selling.

as far as I know, the bolt on kit is what the military had, there was no weld on kit from the military that I ever heard of. There are various body weld on kits from jeeppanelsplus and Fla Tactical , and some guy in holland, but those are not military stock.

Hello Litz,
yes, it's a bolt-on (all the Mil-issue fenders are bolt-ons).
You can see the contents of the parts kit in section 1802 of the TM 34-1.
Kind regards....
