    Thanks for responding. Attached is a drawing of what I have. It is from my 36 Lincoln. Since I plan to use the rubber molding referred to in this post I would hope your Packard ones are close to this. Was just down your way last week and expect to be back in a couple weeks, Lancaster area correct?

    Vintagerodshop that rubber is perfect, but I also need the metal trim that holds it in place. I know I've seen it but can't locate the source.

    Thank you for that information. I'll look into it. My car is a KA Detrich Convertible Coupe, nearly ready for the first ride.
  4. I am looking for a project for my son and I. Ideally it would be a stalled restoration with engine mechanical work done, some chrome done. My time is limited and I don't want to start with a car that will need to come apart, haven't bought a car together for 30 years. Since I am well aware of end values of these cars and could buy one all tickety boo this is more about time with my son so its more about the right car. We are both accomplished steam car people so not much frightens us. Thanks for the ebay tip.
  5. Looking for a 46 to 48 C projectontinental
  6. Have had many sets of wood wheels redone mostly by Bill Calimer recently had a set by Studzman. There is no comparison,Calimer by far is the best, not cheapest but best.
  7. Great news, congratulations
  8. I have a 1933 and need a picture or drawing of the shaft that is used on the cowl side vents, have the vents and the lever but no rod. Thanks John Kelso
  9. On most of these cars I've seen "naked" the lead was factory, usually to fill the seams where a body was put together. Quite common in the classic era
  10. I learned lead work in the 60's, and still use it on occasion. I see no reason for you to remove it, I wouldn't.
  11. Not 48 but the one I served under.

    Does anyone know of a source for the molding as pictured. It is attached to the top and windshield and holds the L shaped rubber that seals the door glass on a 1933 Lincoln Convertible Coupe. Have seen it used on other Classic era cars. Thanks, John Kelso
  16. Contact Russell Holden in Aussie he has lots of Cadillac 30 parts. You can find contact info on the HCCA site, he is a director.
  17. The Surrey I posted the picture of uses an Ottaway Burner with Maxwell Pilot. Works quite well
  18. It was my understanding that the burner just went into a lower flame,or at least thats how mine worked.
  19. 8 hose clamps suitable for early 30's for 7/8 od hose. Thanks
  20. Pretty good running Locomobile Surrey 1901
  21. The key is spinning them. At first(dar ages) I used a rotisserie motor from a grill then adapted a vintage home clothing press. been using it for nearly 40years
  22. You might inquire with Whitmer Coach in New Holand,Pa they offer 2 blacks for there carriage trade. Pg 40 of there catalogue717-656 3411 Have seen on some early steamers that what appeared to be black was originally a very dark green Better to talk to a supplier of automotive body shop products than one like Napa where paint is a sideline. Talk to a good body shop in your area
  23. On difficult tops where the glue was still holding we used a heart gun to loosen it then scrape off. I would always clean the top of old glue mostly using thinner. There is a special vinyl top glue that we used and sprayed it on. Some glues will become sticky when exposed to summer heat,( hot day direct sun on black material) have seen this often on covered trunks. S Start in the middle and move to the sides when reinstalling tricky part is when you come to the rear corners as you lay the top down do it slowly and with help working out air bubbles. Good luck
