  1. I am restoring a well preserved original late 1929 Pontiac 4dr sedan (titled as '29, but similar to '30).Garaged all its life, last on road in 1955 when fuel pump went bad. No rust, turns over,everything is there and in place. My problem is, the previous owner tried to replace alot of critical wood that was dryrotted and was a lousy carpenter at best.I have purchased a nice pair of replacement front hinge pillars and a pair of side roof rails. I am an accomplished woodworker and car restorer, but never the two together. I plan to make new center posts. I have a Fisher Body Service Manual as a guide, but am missing alot of info. Can anyone offer guidance for the easiest removal of the homemade pillar posts and top rails and replacing them with the new in a way that I don't fumble thru it 6 times? Any suggestions for where to find dimensions, or patterns, or further info to help me reconstruct all of the missing top wood framework (crown roof rails, roof bows, strainers, etc)? Any and all help appreciated, I am anxious to save this '29 beauty. Thanks, Steve
  2. Alan, I contacted number of sources looking for wood parts for my '29 4 dr Pontiac sedan. I tried Vintage Woodworks LLc 715-445-3791, Autowood Restoration 219-797-3775, and finally struck paydirt with Classic Wood 336-691-1344 Owner-Steve Cannon. My parts are on order for 2 month (est) production date at a reasonable price. A local man Gary Wallace sells a windshield kit for $175 with the gears and arms for our old Pontiacs with the V & V windshields (vision and ventilation). 314-393-1991 Steve
