  1. This looks like a very solid car. None of the incorrect parts are hard to amend. The light switch, spark advance and throttle levers at the steering wheel center and the horn buttonhole been or are in the process of being reproduced. Join the Hupp Club and advertise your needs to encourage more report. projects of the necessary parts. The door sill trim is installed with escutcheon pins on top as you already know. Flat headed body nails are used on the underside and can only be installed with the body raised from the frame. If your carb is leaking and is the pot metal unit , there may be cracks in the float bowl. The source of leaks in the bronze units usually is from the needle valve sticking open or the float sticking. This could also be true for the pot metal units and for either one requires removal for a thorough cleaning and inspection. Huppguy
  2. For all '28 and '29 M series cars the crankcase was natural aluminum, the oilman natural zinc and the block, head and all accessories were gloss black. The carburetor, whether the pot metal UU2 or the bronze UU2, were painted in aluminum paint. I have one nearly all original '29 and two '28s, one of which was un touchd before a cosmetic overhaul, and they, as well as several parts cars, had these details. That has led me to assume they are correct. Huppguy
  3. Are you a Hupmobile Club member? If not, join up and your needs will be advertised in the HUPP HERALD. If there is enough interest, I would be willing to take on a report. project for this piece as I will soon need one - the original in my '29 M cabriolet looks ready to go south. What body style is your car? Ken, AKA Huppguy, Hupmobile Club Tech Adviser for '28 and '29 M cars
