I've exhausted internet inquires looking for a fender eliminator for my ST2 and I can't find any manufacturers. I recall seeing pictures of one in an online manual but either the company has gone out of business or has found a way to stay under Google radar. Any ideas, conversion suggestions, other model crossover possibilities?
Thanks in advance!

That's the one I have. Easy install and looks clean. I would guess it's at least 1 lb lighter than stock too.

It will take a small mod to fit as it was designed for the SS. It just drilling a couple easy holes.

Have a good one.

Thanks to all for the source information. I was getting a bit frustrated, this should be what I need. I really appreciate all the responses!

I installed the DT piece and found that there is no need to drill any additional holes for added support. That said, my directionals are still mounted to my luggage brackets and not the fender eliminator as I believe they are more visible when mounted to the luggage brackets.

I also use only the antler location for the same reason.

I wanted to use all five fasteners to mount the fender. There is were the holes were needed.

Have a good one.

Ahhhhh-Ha. You're far more hardcore than I am, Tony. Where possible, I avoid riding in the rain. Guess giving the frequency you are on your ST compounded by living in WA that's virtually not an option. Therefore mounting the fender makes complete sense.

Yeah, the rain is impossible to avoid if you have the affliction around here. After getting caught out a couple times, I found it was much less of a worry.

Also considering the traffic around here, the worse the weather, the better time to ride. The cage commute can double or triple with the first hint of drizzle. And sometimes for the dolts on the road here, the sun shine is actually bad weather. LoL.

Have a good one.

If the signals are still on the panner mounts that should work, mine were mounted to the plastic tail tidy and over time the plastic cracked. :mad:

Just an update. DT shipped instantly. Everything fit perfectly, no drilling, no big hammers or foul language required. Very neat & clean.
Thanks to all for the input and suggestions! Much appreciated.

Good question.

Damned if I know! guess out of habit changing the lights and antlers for the bags. BTW, I did take the tails lens off intentionally, the original was cracked and breaking around the screws. So that wouldn't be necessary otherwise.

Hey Mark,
Yeah down to one strat, thinned the herd but still have a Tele, an SG, an old Dan Electro and a few acoustics.

Proper.

I'd love a Tele. I have a '59 strat in sonic blue (that isn't a patch on my 70's strat) that I keep toying with the idea of chopping in for a Tele.
It'd have to be a Tele custom - not the custom with the humbuckers, but the one with regular pickups, rosewood fingerboard, and the binding around the edge. A '62 reissue kind of thing.

LOL. Strats? Teles? Odd then that this is a thread about "Fender" eliminators :D!
