Great work but I don't know how you get time to write the information up and keep your workshop so tidy. Perhaps you could write another blog on time management.

Thanks to posting.

Chet,

I enjoy reading about your restoration work.  At the end of this restoration, you will be a walking
Model U encyclopedia.

LOL .., Thanks  Bill, but I think the memory is one of the first things to go.   :(

Prep for Paint - Door Repairs.

Lots of things going on this spring but did manage to fit in some car progress.
Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Chet,  Is that a rear window frame in twpoulter's picture?   frank

I would say Yes...  But that's the remains of the rear skin's body flange around the window.., not the interior finish frame.  It's amazing that the shade is still there and the mounting brackets.  I feel like a buzzard flying over a rotting carcass with my mouth watering.

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.
