  1. You might call Chris Herrel listed In sources he might have what you need. Also Alan Willlhan listed in sources.
  2. Taylor made upholstery in new Philadelphia,Ohio 330-343-6835. Jan Roll is the guy you want to talk to. He can source your leather and whipcord . He does stellar work, and I as well as many others had their 41 Continentals upholstery done there to factory specs. Tom
  3. Ask Keith Lee at knobsoud , he casts beautiful steering wheels. And may help you out on your other issues. Tom
  4. Looks 100% tp me, nice job Tom
  5. Beautiful work, keep on moving forward. Tom
  6. I just bought black silicon, masked off the seam and using the smallest point possible just followed the seam while squeezing the tube with a calking gun. Wet my finger, spreaded out evenly. Let it get a skin coat on.silicon, then removed the tape. Not one leak at all and looks great on my blue Continental. Tom
  7. Happy to see you removed it. Tom
  8. P.S. You’ll have to remove the inner windshield frame, save the screws
  9. Stefaini, On my 41 Continental, I removed that windshield frame. Open the door and look carefully following the frame down into the hinge post. you should find two screws on each side (not the door hinges) these will need removed. Now go under the dash and you will find the bolts or screws holding it onto the body. Be very careful removing the frame. Work slow and you may have to use some penetrating oil where the frame is bolted into the tight fitting area on the doors.. hope this helps. Tom
  10. This is how my 41 Continental looked when I bought in 76
  11. Sorry. Jeff, I have seen them on 40 and 41 Continentals and they don’t float my boat. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
  12. If you have one in the car, what can’t you measure that? reguards Tom
  13. adyv8 if you search for brake adjustment on a 36 Ford. There is tons of information to explain the procedure. I bet your car will be the same. If you have nos brakelining, that’s what I would use, much better braking. Tom
  14. I forgot to mention the cable comes from the transmittion but, my car has theX frame so I had to route through that, all,else them same in my previous post.
  15. Thanks JB I will certantly miss it this year, but I fully intend to be there next year with my car. Tom
  16. My 41 Continental speedometer cable starts at the transmission then goes forward to the drivers side of the frame, under the frame then upward behind the drivers side fender look around and there will be a one inch hole there. That end of the cable goes through that hole then is routed between the body sheet metal and another piece of sheet metal bracing. Once the cable exits this area, it can be pulled up and routed to the speedometer. This is how my 41 is, not knowing what your car is, it may be different. Tom
  17. Nice JB I love it., I had to cancel Gilmore this year as I had three damned eye surgery’s to fix a detached retina, not fun. I’ll be there next year with a Colombia installed. Tom
  18. If anyone needs any thing for your Zephyr or Contintal, Keith is the go to guy. Everything he offers.is beautiful. Tom
  19. Met Cecil at a Lancaster Parts Meet several years ago when the meet was held in another hotel in Lancaster. Truley a giant of a man in every sense. Had dinner with him one evening and such privledge to have know him. He will be missed. Sad day indeed. Tom
  20. They all seemed to loose braking at some time or another, don’t have a clue why. Those dual systems were usually mounted high on the firewall, but I also know many people use the dual on the frame.. I believe they were needed in the days of steel lines that were prone to develop rust then leaked If you lost a line in the rear, these would allow one to stop with the front. Your choice, I’ll stay with the original and stainless brake lines. Tom
  21. My 41 Continental Cabrolet has 700- 16 inch bias ply tires, 26 pounds front and rear, I don’t deaviate from that. Tom
  22. Oh yeah , I forgot that part, thanks Tom.
  23. Dave.. I know several people that have those on their cars. All of them went back the the original master cylinder. As long as you have new brake lines on your car, and not driving in salt, the original is the way to go. Just my opinion. Tom
