  1. The only parts I have used from the original body were the window regulators. The door latches are mini bear claw latches that I had to modify to fit in the door rails and work with the original inside and outside handles. The liftgate handles are modified Model A Ford parts from Ecklers, the latches I found on the internet and the catches I made from stainless and will be polished. The tailgate hardware is not done yet but will be a combination of internet sourced and home made hardware. I had to make all of the interior brackets. The back door is hung on a set of NOS front door hinges that w
  2. Tailgate and liftgate are mostly done. Have been finishing up the interior as well, inside panels for the quarters, brackets, door jambs etc..Wont be too much longer before it's time to start taking it back apart.
  3. Very nice, the last picture in particular, the grain didn't line up that way by accident. Gross mismatches in grain and color stick out like a sore thumb to me. Gaps look nice too, although I hope you're going to open them up some.
  4. I've built a couple Spotsmans and have pictures of the process. Here are some of the body without the wood. I have more, be glad to talk to you too if that would help.
  5. The back door is done and the spare tire mount is finished. Moving on to the tailgate.
  6. The glass should not fit tight in the frame, on the other hand you don't want it to leak or rattle, so something has to take up the space. If you have any of the original wood left and can determine how big the original channel was, that would give you an idea of what was used. If you don't want to use a rubber channel you could glaze it in with something like silicone.
  7. Please post pictures when you get the truck, the Hemmings ad is gone. To each his own, I say. It's your truck, it's your time and money going into it, and when it's done it's you that has to be happy with it. Good luck with your project which ever way you decide to go with it.
  8. Both front doors are done, at least as far as I am going to go with them for now. Next will be to fill in the space behind the drivers door where the spare tire will mount. This space originally had a sliding window, I had an extra regulator so decided to use it there. The spare tire mount will have to be worked out since it originally hung off the C pillar but since I moved that back that will no longer work.
  9. Correct. This one. Might have found something, will know for sure in a day or two.
  10. The door I need these for is on the right. The pictures I posted are from a left side door but in this case they are the same side to side.
  11. Set of hinges resembling these, need to be about 2-1/2 inches tall. Need set for one door.
  12. Moving on to the front doors. I am going to keep the styling as close to what Campbell did as I can. We wanted a wider door so the B pillar has been moved back, the fixed wing window was eliminated and decided on bear claw latches. The next two should go a little faster now that the engineering has been done. The passenger side gets a back door but not the drivers. That panel will have a roll up window though.
  13. What would be involved in a restoration will depend on the present condition of the wood and what kind of finished product you have in mind. Assembly is pretty much self explanatory, every part will only fit in one place. Start with the larger more obvious pieces and through the process of elimination they will eventually all fall into place.
  14. A whole new wood body on a Power Wagon chassis. Posted it over in the National Woodie Club section but thought maybe some outside the woodie world might be interested as well.
  15. You know that Power Wagon over in the Woodie Club section? That's what this came from. You could still be right though because I'm pretty sure the regulators are not original and could have come from anything. I'm thinking i'll probably get some pinned cranks and either drill the regulator posts out or use set screws.
