Model A Ford Trunk to Rumble Conversion


Recommended Posts

I am using a good original trunk lid to rplace the rotted out rumble lid on my 31 Roadster project. As I see it the steps are: 1. Remove trunk handle and latch and fill hole (done). 2. Drill lid and mount my original rumble latch and handle. 3. Mount my original rumble hinges to the lid. Here's where I see an issue. The hinges were mounted to my original rumble lid using flat head machine screws with nuts welded inside the lid for them to go into. I don't see any convenient way to attach the nuts to my replacement lid. Has anyone done this and if so any easy solutions? How about using self taping screws in place of the machine screws or will the inner shell of the lid support these. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
