Thanks for the up-date, Chet.  Always enjoy following the work on your Plymouth.  Great job, as usual.
When this car is finished, you will be able to teach the course on the 1929 U.

Prep for Paint - Continued.

It's hard to believe that on October 29, 2019 I will start the fourth year of this project.  There is still a lot to be done but getting the car to the paint shop before the extreme cold weather sets in will be a big step toward completion.  It seems that the project is dragging but each completed task gets me closer to driving this car again.  Like reaching the halfway point in a marathon.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Hi Chet!
 Nice to follow Your work!
Please: is the Distributor Base custom built in Germany?
Who did it and what did they need as data input?
Is presenting the original sufficient for them to copy it?
I had trouble to find a GOOD gas pump for my 504 Peugeot 4 dr. sedan.
Until now, I had 3, none working to my satisfaction...
My mechanic calls it "China Junk".

Prep for Paint - The Motor Returns

My motor was finally returned to me after some needed rework to the main bearings to facilitate proper oil flow to the crank and connecting rods.  Rework was done at no additional charge.

The other purpose was to give people like myself and others who are far from an existing region a place to meet and have a voice in POC club discussions.   I don’t think Mark understood the concept or how to organize the board properly to accommodate the idea.   I even toyed with the idea of actually creating an internet region for disconnected and younger more computer savvy POC members.   This might help get them more involved in the club with the possibility to maybe help each other even though they are separated by hundreds of miles.   I enjoyed the early P15D24 site and I was influenced by this experience to create the 28Q29U site.   After 10 years it’s doing well.  No ads.
Anyway I couldn’t make any headway without national buy in.  I think the emphasis was put on Facebook.  FYI.., I believe there are one or two other Internet Group members I don’t know if they are still active on the forum.

BTW.., I highly recommend your site for Plymouth: The First Decade. … Well Done!!
Best Regards,  Chet…

Hi Chet, I've only just found this and I think it's brilliant I think it's a great resource and can see many good reasons for having it available, I did try to logon but couldn't. Your detailed page on your P15 interests me as I would like to think I may have one in the future. Access to your manuals would be very useful to me I think it was to top one of you list of Links.

Here in the UK it's too cold to do much bodywork, while the 41 Pickup is ready for paint the temperature isn't so of now I'm working on the upholstery for the cab, once thats done I can always drop back on the full retrim on my 33 PD R/S Coupe. By the way very impressed with the transformation of your P15.

Off topic: Chet, I see that your signature says you are part of the "Internet Region Group". This is the first I've become aware of such a thing for the Plymouth Owners Club and I don't see anything about that on the website home page nor do I see that in a random Plymouth Bulletin laying near my computer. Who/what is that and where can I find more information? Thanks!

Technically I am a member of the Delaware Valley Region.  Although.., the meetings are a 2.5 hour drive for me so unfortunately I don’t make many.  Not an uncommon story…, anyway.

The internet region was a suggestion I made to Mark to allow access to discussion boards within the current forum that could only be accessed by current members of the POC.   This is done through the administrative permissions that are created for the discussion category.  Members without permissions wouldn’t even see these boards when they were logged in.  This would keep POC member discussions unencumbered by nonmembers.  At the time there were a lot of critiques provided to the board by nonmembers.   It’s not that I wanted to shy away from the comments I just wanted to know that the discussion comments were being made by actual club members.  You can also create a group called “POC Member” rather than “Internet Region Group (Paid $$$)” You could create groups separated by regional membership, etc.  Each of these created groups can be granted permissions.  You are a tech savvy guy you should understand what I was driving for.

The other purpose was to give people like myself and others who are far from an existing region a place to meet and have a voice in POC club discussions.   I don’t think Mark understood the concept or how to organize the board properly to accommodate the idea.   I even toyed with the idea of actually creating an internet region for disconnected and younger more computer savvy POC members.   This might help get them more involved in the club with the possibility to maybe help each other even though they are separated by hundreds of miles.   I enjoyed the early P15D24 site and I was influenced by this experience to create the 28Q29U site.   After 10 years it’s doing well.  No ads.

..., will you be working through the winter?.  Sure Bob would be looking down smiling, bless him.

First of all many thanks for all the At-A-Boys.  Sorry to hear about Bob from the Plymouth Bulletin.  Very sad.

Spent the holidays in Florida with the grand kids.  In answer to your question I have been trying to work on the car but it is very difficult to do body work in the colder weather.  I might be picking up the motor soon, so it will be easer to get some wrench time over the cold snaps.

Speaking of cold snaps., I don't know how you guys in the central north section of the US get anything done during the winter months.  :(

Sorry to all for the delayed response,  Chet...

Prep for Paint - Last of the Door/Door Frame Repairs.

I started on this in June and over the summer have been distracted by a number of things but this weekend I finally completed this section of my project.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Yours is a beautiful team, unfortunately not living next door to their Grandpa!
  Here are mine, Helena and Aenias (father is greek).
Aenias always at the controls: rocket flyer or Ply driver,
leaving inadequate transportation behind:

Grand kids are every thing, we have 5, three boys and two girls, the oldest boy of thirteen, he shadows me all the time one of those kids that will not grow away, I have 2 Morris/ Austin minis that I hope I will find enough time to build one for him. I have so many grown-up toys waiting to be finished, steaming ahead with my 41 Pick-up to the stage where it is now in my workshop, hope to remove the cab next week.

Tom, I'm told that "He who dies with the most toys wins".  Personally I don't think you actually need a lot of toys just need to play with them once and awhile.  Grand Kids are a great excuse.

chet you are very fortunate to have toys from your childhood, I have a couple of tin toys which were always at my grand mothers which came to me when she passed, an Ambulance and single decker Bus, they are at the top of our stairs in a cabinet and only come out for dusting. Nostalgia funny how things return to you mind of bygone days when your memory is jogged.

Any great progress made on the 29 lately, why does everything take so long, but there I have a friend just south of Nashville, been restoring high end cars for comming on 45 yrs, has a large purpose built unit and works on his own, some of his jobs are in the shop several yrs for various reasons. One is a large RR customer passed about 5 yrs ago just before it was finished, told to sell it by the executors but not a lot of call for a RHD in the States.

Mind wandered there Chet sorry.

Great pictures Tom I wish I know more about the history of my car. 

Frank, the motor is just about finished.  Its in final assembly and paint.

Go, Always nice to hear from you.  PS my grand kids are up from Florida and I set up my old Lionel Trains so they can play with the same toys I played with as a kid.  I believe you like model railroading.  Anyway the trains have taken over the den.  Running around the furniture and distracting the kids from the video games, internet, and TV.  Nothing like the sound of a train whistle to get your imagination to run wild.

Hi chet so true what you say on my 33 PD R/S coupe all the side mount tin wear and iron were missing, they were there in 1970 when it was rescued in South Africa but not when it came to the UK in 2002. they took me 4 yrs to find in the States, only draw back is that they are not identical yet. Keep up the good work, onward and upwards. 

Thought to be when new                                                                                   When found in 1970 near Bloemfontein SA

Hi Chet, I've been reading your thread,   G00D work. In 1972 I started on mine. a 28 Ply. Coupe. I went through the same as you. Became a carpenter on this car and then a body man. Back then no internet to find parts or group info on the car . I wish I would of taken more pictures to show like you. I do have many polaroid and kodak pictures in a box and on a story board. I finally finished in 1998  You have done wonders.  Thank you for sharing.

Funny thinking back to old celluloid film, I used to use 35mm 36 exp. take them to the chemist and back they come in about a week, then you would find half of them were rubbish. Thing in favour is that I have more 30 years worth of packets of photos with their film, today you can take one hundred photos and lose them in a second

Thanks for the kind comments.

What I find challenging about this car is there is very little that can be found as repro parts.  It seems you can find anything you might need for the Model A, either wooden frame reproes or any and all metal parts.  I spent the last 10 years acquiring original restorable parts when I was lucky enough to stumbled across them.  Which wasn't very often.  Now I can maybe get the planets to align so I can get this car purring again.  Hopefully the documentation can maybe help someone else down the road.

Prep for Paint - Upper Door Frame Repairs.

LOL.., I know what you are talking about.  Unfortunately doing a restoration by yourself is like moving an elephant with a toothpick.  You need a lot of time and patience.  My wife has become a good helper and second set of hands.  Dirt doesn't touch her hands either.., she has gloves.  :)

Chet, I knew I should have talked to you before, I now know where I've been going wrong. Bob Drown keeps telling me to just get one driving but I can't decide which one and those jobs around the house, that's another story. The lists gets longer as I get older, I do have a 13 yr old Grandson but he gets easily bored and his hands have never seen dirt.
