Wow, great pictures. Maybe a few usable parts rotting away.

  • Regarding a rubber seal the only thing on my 33 PD is a channel in the top of the door to accept a square rubber insert
  • The only thing on mine is the windlass piping
The photos won't help you but they were sent to me by a friends daughter that liver in Ottawa Quebec. Yes it's a model U

Tom,

Thanks for the suggestion.  Before it goes to the painter I'll mask the dash.  Since it is vacant of any components I can easily remove it, sand, and repaint.  Actually another member offered to send me an old damaged dash he had that I could use instead of mine.  I truly appreciate the help and interest of club members and non-members alike.  This car is turning out to be a very collaborative effort. 

Currently looking for info about the following:

Question:
  • Was there weather stripping around the door frames.  If so, anyone have any pictures ?
  • Also interested in how the hinge pillars are weather sealed ?   
  • Was there a metal rear window frame, I don't believe I have one.

Any info or pictures of original interior is greatly appreciated. 

Chet...

Great progress as always just thoroughly enjoy the way you set all the various steps on your website, I hope this new website will soon be working to the same standard. Regarding your concern over moving the car without supporting the the steering wheel might it be an idea to suspend a couple of ties from the roof laths and one up from the floor to give you 3 point contact. My PD has it's body on 6" riser blocks and I have used that method to move it several times.

The Roof Lath

I took advantage of the summer like weather and made some incremental progress to the old car.
Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Thanks for the at-a-boys.

I hope my errors and successes help someone else working to save one of theses old cars from the crusher.

Great to see the blow by blow account of your work, very detailed with lots of photos. Thanks for taking us along this journey with you.  As an aside I am hoping when the new site is launched, if ever, we will be able to document are threads adding the photos as we go instead of attaching them at the end unless I?m not using the tabs correctly.

It looks like this repair facility did some quality work judging by the exterior fit & finish.

Hi Bill,

The work on the generator and starter was don by Don Allen. Pricy but excellent work.  He was featured on Jay Leno's Garage.
