I picked up fender welting from Restoration Specialties.

the back rubber is the one in the picture above with the flange. the stuff between the fenders and radiator shell and the fenders and headlight panel is beaded vinyl.  the older B's with the bolted together radiator shell and headlight panels  didn't have anything between them just thick hollow core rubber between the fenders and headlight panels

I think Maddog is correct on this . Working on my fenders now what I purchased from Restoration Specialties MTF194 is not what came off between the headlight panel and fender . Something closer to the # 193.  5/16" x 1" ribbed International Truck Fenderwelt was stapled to head light panel using large steel staples.

I used contact cement and left out the staples. Worked out great

I used the #193 on my headlight panels.  Not quite right but it is OK with me.
