cxvgd, I have thought of that as well and glad you mentioned it just confirms my thoughts. I agree that may be a good idea to have them reclined with something a bit safer. Do you know what the original thickness of the pads should be for each of the bands inner and outer?

Norm, sorry just got your post I will get couple posted for you tomorrow. I see Hugh posted some on his 25 which gives good view with no body attached. I will get you a few with body panels to see if there is any differences can be seen.

Thanks Brice 

It appears that a 22 and 23 may be narrower at the front  than the 25. ..?

Hugh has done an amazing job documenting his 25 , I can at least identity all my missing pices now..😀 And have a handle on how the frame goes together structurally.

Brice, Thanks for the photos.  Very subtle differences in the model 35 and my later 25.  Always a gold mine find to see original interior materials like the door panels.    Hugh

Brice,

Many thanks for the photos ,  all your woodwork appears  in useable condition. Strangely the only intact  woodwork I have is a door  with the leatherette material and flap also.  Of the 23's I seen here none have had the original interior survive.  

Also i posted a reply on the brake lining question earlier,  similar view here in oz asbestos has been banned in cars for some time.  A few restorers have mentioned  to me as well as brake re-lines ,  clutch resurfacing can also be done by the brake shop guys as well for not a lot of money.  Regards Norm

Norm,

Ya from what I have read on the forms here I am very lucky that the only wood issues so far is the one spot that broken off in the back drivers side that you can see in the third picture on my original post will not be too much to fix and move on. well least lets put it this we will see once I start digging more into the body then it may be a bigger surprise but I hope not.

Brice
