  1. do you have the old worn out foam to use as a template? This company is great at cutting and supplying foam: http://www.foamoutlet.com/ They are very quick. Unfortunately they are near Philly
  2. I need the answer on a generic radiator cap as well thanks bruce
  3. The Pontiac equivalent might fit. (lemans/gto). Try posting something at pontiac forums. Here's one: http://forums.maxperformanceinc.com/forums/index.php
  4. Thanks Mark - I have been into Pontiacs (mainly GTOs). Bruce
  5. I got this new radiator and grill shell along with the project car I bought (28Pontiac). Its clearly for a ford, but beyond that I don't know. I have the original box that the pair came in. I do see some wear on the radiator from the box. Selling for $325 plus my shipping cost plus paypal fee. I would prefer local pickup because of the size. The width is about 19" plus or minus 1/8" The height is 24 3/4" except where the bottom hose connector is, which adds about 1" The radiator appears to be brass. Also advertised on HAMB. thanks Bruce
  6. The chien looks very tired from all the work, but the car is safe now.
  7. Does Hershey publish a vendor list and location in PDF form before the meet like Carlisle does ? Its easier for me to read on a computer screen than the paper booklet. thanks
  8. 32pontiac, and tinindian, good ideas that i will try. I can say that the wood in the firewall and hinge pillar is very solid with no apparent repairs. I also realize the door dovetails are critical. I'm going to the hershey car show, and hope i can find some parts to rebuild them. I have enough parts now for two doors. Before i read these posts, I adjusted the top hinge attachments on the doors, it was clear they were not straight before. I also added about 1/8 shim to the bottom hinge of both doors. the end result was great, but not complete improvement, especially
  9. Here are some pictures. the one labeled pict3 shows the hinge side. Pict 1 shows the amount of sag at the door side as does pict2. There is no play in the hinges or the wood (I really have to pull upwards hard to have it go up at all
  10. Bloo, There is no play in the a-piller, I just checked. I also replaced or repaired all the hinges. I did try to read the PDF you mentioned, but your shorted version is much easier to understand. I'll now try to apply it thanks alot, Bruce
  11. Tinindian, there is a visible drop [sag] in the doors toward the latch side. On the side with the least drop, if I force the door up, it will fit quite well in the opening. On both sides, the gap is quite good on the a-pillar side. Maybe the A-pillars are bent toward the rear of the car ?
  12. I thought Pontiac of this vintage would have 6 lugs
  13. I am putting the doors back on my 1928 Pontiac Landau. The wood in the car was quite good except for a couple of hinge holes, which i have repaired. I replaced or repaired all the hinges. The back doors both fit fine, both front doors sag, i would say 1 about 1/4 inch, the other about 1/8th inch. One of the doors had about 1/16th wooden shim in back of the bottom two hinges. I read (But didn't comprehend well) the "tips on auto body wood work" and "fisher body service manual), so that didn't help me much. The two things I have thought of so far are: 1. Put shims,
  14. Does anyone know a vendor (or is one) that might sell: Smaller door parts - strikers, latches, rubber parts for doors, inside door and window handles (long shot) Right front fender is great shape for a 1928 Pontiac. Some of the parts from the similar year Chevy may be the same, so I will look at vendors that also sell Chevy door parts I have tried to buy some of these parts online, but usually there are no pictures so I don't want to take the chance to buy the comparable Chevy part thanks in advance Bruce
