  1. marcus@heritageaai.com He does great work. He redid my three shades. Now if I can just find some ends that work! Robert
  2. Good idea but don't have two different ends only a hole to hold the roller. Not sure which end is fixed to coil the spring when the shade is pulled down. The inside must have been different or is it the screw end that fits tight in the hole? Do you have a source that does bass castings? Robert
  3. Just had the shades redone on my 1923 Hudson. The end pieces were pot metal and are now broken and useless. Does anyone know a source for these pieces? One end is a round bar the other a screw end. Robert
  4. You are right that is true for a number of the gauges but not the speedometer. I did get the front plate off just had to go some gentle prying. There are two screws on the back of the speedometer I may try unscrewing them and see what happens.......... Robert
  5. Trying to take out or at least loosen the speedometer from my 1923 Hudson need to paint dash. Nothing on the back so I think I have to unscrew the face. Is there a special tool to use? I've tried using my hands but nothing moves. Don't want to break anything. Robert
  6. Thanks for the photo. I'm now trying to take out the speedometer so I can paint the dash, Any tricks? I think I have to unscrew the face to get it out. Is there a special tool to use? Robert
  7. Does anyone have any experience changing out the padded portion of the dash above the instrument panel? Here is a photo of the dash with the wood exposed. It looks like they used some sort of insulation glued to the leather material then it was nailed on the bottom. No doubt before the metal part of the dash was added. I have loosed the attachment to the metal dash and can slide my new material in between. Thinking about gluing the insulation to the wood then stretching my leather material around the Bottom and nail or stapling to the wood on the backside of dash. Has anyone had any experience with this? Robert bottom and nailing or stapling behind the dash. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Robert
  8. Alex Here is a 1912 model 36 Peerless. It looks like the back window rolls up. Robert
  9. Well done Alex I think you have the answer. Did the Peerless have 4 roll up windows or only the two in the back? So far 1919 or 1920 were the first sedans with 4 roll up windows. Would love to see the Gray and Davis system. Robert
  10. Does anyone have any experience in changing the headliner in a 20's Hudson Sedan. I have a 1923 Sedan and would like to replace the headliner. It looks like there is no backing and I can't feel any support under the fabric. Is it just stretched across then nailed to a support board along the edge of the roof? Then the wind-lace is tacked over it? I have not taken it apart yet and thought someone out there could guide me through this step. Robert
  11. David, Just noticed you are from Louisiana. I live in Covington Louisiana. Robert
  12. David, You have a wonderful list of cars. Should keep you very busy keeping them all running. Robert
  13. The board and material is along the door/window frames. I understand what you said an that is exactly what they did. I think I can do the same. Robert
  14. Working on the upholstery of my 1923 Hudson and finding several different widths of cowlboard tack strips 1 inch 2 inch etc. Does anyone know a source for these or do I have to make them myself. I have the board and can cut it to size and then I guess I just drive my tacks through it. My guess is 100 years ago that is what they did. Any help on this? Robert

    That's right Tom. The piece at the bottom. Don't want to have to take the door apart again to replace it. Robert
