  1. Wish I could help but cannot right now, all my time is being consumed with work and then my own truck project. There simply is not enough time in the day, Ive spent quite a few years doing my best to help other D.B owners and now its my time to work on my own stuff. Quick and easy replies are no problems if I have the answers but to do the re-search is too time consuming at this point. Sorry I cannot be of more help!
  2. And it sounds like a good plan, I was just trying to clarify and be sure you understood that if you had an original muffler these generic tailpipes will not work without modification.
  3. Any exhaust parts you buy will not be as original equipment but will instead be a compilation of bends and turns that are generic in nature to simply wrap up and over the axle housing.
  4. Truck engine and auto engine internals are not all the same, if you were more specific on which parts you were specifically considering swapping and which specific engines you are referring to than I could be of more help but to sit down and go line by line thru old parts books trying to note differences/changes is much too time consuming for me at this point.
  5. Soak the manifold in Vinegar solution neutralize with baking soda solution or electrolysis set-up. Custom made and I think it would be difficult to have them made off the car.
  6. Having both I can say the difference between the two books is that the instruction book is by far a more condensed version of the vehicles mechanics. More intended for salesman possibly to sell the vehicle to prospective buyers. Have them for Plymouth and Dodge
  7. Or you can go on E-bay and pick one up for a good price still as long as its not in mint condition or some gouger hasnt got his greedy hands on it.
  8. I talked about this with someone in the past but cannot remember the specific details. Either way it only makes sense that there would have been a wood preservative of some type and I am positive paint was not used on floorboards. I cannot say for your runninboards though.
  9. What can you tell me about the instruction book lower right corner. I have several and all un-dated as Im sure yours is as well.
  10. No reproductions that I am aware of, Plymouth used the same bucket as well as other Chrysler products Im sure
  11. The wooden floorboards in the autos were coated with some sort of petroleum based preservative, ( I may be mistaken on the petroleum part ) I believe this led to a darkening of the wood, other than that no paint, I would think the runningboards would be treated in the same fashion but just a guess.
  12. Shannon, glad that your not going to argue with me, if you re-read my post above I stated I thought you were doing a good job/ commended you on the work thus far, I also offered my opinion on some facts you had posted concerning conclusions you had made with the paint. I am not always right and look forward to being proven otherwise. In this case I have brochures for 1929/30 Dodge, original stuff that details ( to some small extent ) the original factory procedures that these cars underwent when they were being manufactured. Are these absolutely conclusive in that this was the process your own vehicle underwent? No, and I do look forward to being corrected. This is an open discussion forum and I will continue to offer my opinions and what facts I am able to offer.
  13. Fuel tank and chassis were painted separately originally, that confirms you vehicle had a novice restoration at one point during its 80 plus years but by all means keep hosing away. There is also a strong possibility that at one point of its lifetime it had collision damage and all this green you are seeing is over spray made by someone that couldnt be bothered to take the time to get it right , who knows. Looking pretty good, not 100% authentic but Im sure the majority will never know the difference and you do not seem too concerned with getting it completely original anyway.
  14. The ones to the left of tape are floorboard, the larger on the right I am not sure but since they are pointed than I would venture to say they would pierce fabric or such so maybe body mount?
  15. Ok my misunderstanding. No need to buy the manual. A fellow forum member created this link some time ago that should give you the page by page of one of three versions of your car manual that was avail at the time. This one should give you what you need. http://dragondark.us/29/
  16. Thomas there were no service manuals avail at the time specifically for your vehicle, there were alot of general reference manuals avail such as Dykes and a number of motors manuals ect. I thought you had mentioned already having your owners manual which is about as close to a specific service manual that you will find. If you can be more specific on the issues you are having than I am sure someone here would be able to help.
  17. I looked on both sites and no longer find it too be there.
  18. Th colors chart on Myers/Romars web-site is a copy of an original page from a sales brochure, the information is accurate.,
  19. I understand and agree with the gloss issue. There are flattening agents that can be added to the clear to give you just about any desired sheen you would like.
  20. Great idea, I think you nailed it!!
  21. My first guess was a window shade bracket but the size would disqualify that notion I guess.
