Dave, what difference does it make to the way the car turns in water ? I
was told it was a factory mod to remove them as the car turns much better
without but I don't think I've ever driven a very early car with them still
fitted so don't know for sure.
I never noticed any difference. This car still retained broken and rusted prop shields. Using them as a pattern made new. Car looks factory done. I thought the shields were removed to help eliminate broken props from river debris. Tree limb would get caught and have no where to go. Later Dave the Wave
I use to make them and replaced them on my 1st cars.. Now I recomend removing them unless you have to have Original..
they do run in water better without them.. more speed... yea right.
less prop cavitating and then the daMAGE THING..
