  1. Is EDPM a brand name - or am I just showing my ignorance?
  2. This begs the question - why not come up with a protective coating that doesn't require an industrial strength cleaning to get it off? Does a sheet explaining the removal come with the tires when you purchase them?
  3. Buy them now. Just ask all the folks who put off ordering their interior fabric and kits from LeBaron-Bonney. If something is available and you need it - buy it before it’s too late.
  4. I may have posted this before, but this is the photo I always come back to when things get tough. Taken by Phil Kennedy in 1970. Note the mismatched color on the wire wheels, which were like that when I bought the car.
  5. In the always popular "been there, done that" category, I'm in the process of making/getting a new firewall pad and making rubber grommets for the firewall pass-thoroughs. I asked PO, and fellow Dodge Brothers member, Phil Kennedy to send me some firewall and under dash photos of his very original DL so I could get a good look at what things should look like. As always, Phil quickly replied with excellent shots. That's were the trouble started. I noticed with alarm that there was a brace under the dash from the firewall to below the instrument panel - a brace I didn't remember seeing durin
  6. Just think it through before you start cutting. I assume you'll wait until you get your new floors. That should give you a better idea of what needs to be cut out. You'll get through it. If I had a dollar for every new problem i had to deal with on my car, I'd be a rich man. I guess I'm lucky, my Dodge Brothers 32DL has wood floors that bolt in.
  7. Interesting. I'm going to be doing this in the near future and am curious about the best way to go about it. I've seen where they are tacked on and then the heads of the tacks are carefully pulled under the cloth but still hold the upholstery board beneath. I'm sure the upholstery experts can explain the process, but I've yet to try it. That obviously won't work in your case as you are not using cloth fabric.
  8. Are you going to glue in those back panels or use a different attachment method?
  9. I forgot to mention the trunk stoplight bezels are for sedans only, they don’t fit the coupe or convertible.
  10. Everything is still available as of this post.
  11. Man, I was looking at the first page of this thread that I started back in April of 2013. I was happy to read that my wife and I had a "comprehensive" plan to have the car restored in time for the 2014 hundredth anniversary meet in Detroit. Boy, was I ever dreaming! Seven years later and I'm still grinding away. Despite downsizing, loss of garage space, knee replacement, restoration setbacks and finding parts, I'm not giving up. I really think I can actually drive the car this summer (late summer) but it won't be finished - interior completion I suspect. For some reason, last year it jus
  12. I have a rebuilt Stromberg carb for a 1953-54 Dodge Red Ram Hemi V8 with a Gyromatic transmission. Never been on a car since the rebuild. I sold the engine I bought it for several years ago. $40 plus shipping.
  13. Two NOS trunk stoplight bezels with glass lens. As good as it gets with great chrome and the factory applied red paint in the lettering. No pits, no flaws, the back looks as clean as the front. $35 each. SOLD Rebuilt voltage regulator, still in the wrapping paper - never opened. Pristine. $10 I'd like to see these parts go to someone who really needs them. Unfortunately, I don't have the room to keep them anymore. I can provide more pictures if you're intereste
  14. Have some really nice parts for sale. These are left over from a 48 I used to own. Shipping on you and is what I pay based on your location. Four taillight bezels, factory chrome, no pitting or damage. Not Pebble Beach - but what factory parts are? just super nice with perfect reflectors. $25 each or $80 for all four. SOLD NOS taillight glass (not plastic) with soft, pliable rubber grommets. $20 for everything. NOS horn rim. Not perfect, but really nice. Chro

  17. You can buy rubber pads of varying thicknesses on eBay. Find one of the required thickness and cut out the shape you need with a sharp utility knife with the blade dipped in water and dishwashing soap for lubrication. Glue in place with weather strip adhesive or use screws to attach to the wood.
  18. But then it would be very authentic and disintegrate just like the original!
  19. I think the Chrysler has a 25 inch motor and the Dodge a 23 inch block.
  20. You think yours was bad - check out the front mount from my 32 dodge Brothers DL. And redone by Then and Now Automotive.
  21. I was thinking the other day about a solution to the ubiquitous warped plastic dash panels in the 39 models - and others, too, I'm sure. I don't own a Chrysler, but have read many posts about this problem. Apparently, the plastic is molded onto the metal parts of the dash. Anyway, if someone could provide good, unwarped samples of these panels, they could be 3D scanned into a graphics program and then produced through 3D printing. Once the correct shapes were in the computer, any good designer could alter them to look the same and to fit over the metal parts rather than being molded on.
  22. If you need any help picking it up or taking more pictures, let me know - I’m just down the road from the car.
  23. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SOLD. I'm cleaning out the garage and have a load of 46 to early 49 parts I hope someone can use. Lots of good dash parts and gauges, including a working temperature gauge. Three NOS headlight rims. NOS Moog suspension part. I'd like ten bucks each for the headlight rims, ten for the two dash grills (one is really nice) five apiece for the gauges and five for the Moog part, and twenty for the four door trim pieces (excellent shape, but I forgot to take a picture, but I can send), and ten bucks for the glove compartment door with all trim, plus shipping. I'
  24. I have three of the four pieces of window trim for a 1950 Dodge Wayfarer sedan - I believe they fit 49 to 52. They are in really nice shape, with original paint. I also have the inner windshield trim piece in similar condition. Also have a nice set of trunk hinges and springs in in very nice condition. Cleaning things out and want to see these go to someone who needs them. Free plus shipping, or pick them up. I live in central Illinois. I'm cleaning out parts fr om previous projects. Not a threat, but a sad fact of life, they go to the scrapper if I can't find a taker.
