  1. Got a bit further again today. Found all the screws to hold the door lock mechanisms in place. Cleaned them up and painted them. Sprayed the front of the lock that has the barrel lock fitting on it so you may see theis when the car door is open so I thought I'd give it a shot of black. The grub screw to hold the barrel in place is missing so I thought I'd have a crack at making my own one. which fitted in the little hole at the front of the door. Mounted both door locks and installed both door handles I restored earlier after reshaping the rubber pad the escutcheon pad sits on. Cheers Ian
  2. Can't quite work out why when I click on the first page it takes me to only half the restoration and not the beginning ????
  3. Hey all, Found two little brackets that mount inside the front doors to buffer the window frame when being wound down. Rubber buffer was hard and missing one. Found a similar one at the local hardware store and cut it down to suit. Wire brushed the rusty brackets and tapped new holes as the original screws were too small. Should fit a lot better now. Also cleaned and painted the 4 little brackets I couldn't work out what they were for until another member helped me. Painted 2 Windlace retainer brackets too. Cleaned and taped, then painted the window channel bracket. Also taped up both doors ready to install the finished window and frame assembly. Cheers Ian
  4. Messaged the administrator and had the initial thread when I started the car merged with this thread. Now its all in one spot. Many thanks Peter ( Administrator )
  5. Yeah, but look at all the enjoyment I'm getting !!! ( and lack of hair to go with it :) ) And I haven't got them in the doors yet so I have the Bailey Channel to go yet too.
  6. Last piece of the felt glued into place. Next I'll clean up the new windows that I've resealed in their frames. Cheers Ian
  7. Hi All, I have 3 Window Winder handles that came with the 1934 Dodge I'm restoring. I believe they are from the 1930's but not sure with the pattern on the handle. I'm going to sell them but just need them identified. Cheers Ian
  8. Whoa......that looks fantastic.....I'm sending you mine !
  9. Spent a full day on the car today. Cleaned up the garage, tightened all the body to chassis bolts. Put the last pieces of felt in the window frames. Cleaned up the glass holders for the front windows and got rid of excess polyurethane. Ran a final bead the length of the window. Almost completed the windows now. The last shot is the original fabric covered strips that sit in the window frame where im attaching the felt to. Cheers Ian
  10. Many thanks for the photos. Went straight outside and checked the car and sure enough there's the little screws holding nothing in !! Another problem solved. Many thanks for looking into this for me. Cheers Ian
  11. Don’t know about craftsman...... just too damn fussy for my own good ! any idea where the little brackets come from I posted a bit earlier ? if it makes you feel better I’ve have 3 operations on my spine and my knees are starting to give me grief. i actually went to see my upholsterer today to book my car in. Found out he retired....but still goes to the factory every now and then. I’m hoping he’ll meet me to go over what I need done on the car.
  12. The moment of truth !! Cut along the felt with a sharp scalpel and it was actually easier than I thought. The only issue I had was getting the wooden template out of the window because along the line some of the polyurethane must have got onto the wood and dried. Using a pair of mutligrips I grabbed the wood and gently tapped the multigrips down and out she came ! So far so good. Now I have to get some felt in the two sides where the window winds up and down at the base of the frame. Cheers Ian
  13. After the Polyurethane dried I cut along the edge with a scalpel so once done this gave me a good starting point for the curved bit using the template I made. This gave a fairly neat edge...trick is to have a sharp scalpel !! Then using my template and again filling the inside with polyurethane and two smooth beads lining the sides I was able to get the felt to sit inside the channel. I used a few clamps to really compress it in place so now I have to wait a while until it dries to see if it worked. Cheers Ian
  14. Made up a wood template which will enable me to clamp the felt into place around the curved part of the window frame. Long process waiting for the polyurethane to dry and move onto the next part but I'm sure it will be worth it. Cheers Ian
  15. Righto guys, Who knows what these are. Am I correct in assuming that there are 4 that they are on the doors somewhere ???
