Hi Apolo

I have a few questions about rear seat back wood. can you add a few close up pics of these locations marked in the photo.

1 - yellow arrow: what is this metal hardware attached to upper rail wood ?

2 - pink arrow: is this a hard rubber pad for the rear seat springs ?

3 - orange boxes: how are seat back vertical wood pieces fastened to the upper rail and lower sill ?

 

thanks

Kevin

Hi Kevin.

i will get the close up pics next week. 

you got good eyes there ..! lol.

when i get ready to rip the front seat to reupholster it.. i do remember you want it a set of pics from the rear section of the front seat.

i will post it. no worries.

what i do realized is that the front bottom seat is not correct that's why you see in the early pics when i got the car ..the  upholstery in that seat is different , now i know is not from this car. is a square shape on the bottom frame , when it need to be round in the front corners and it' also an inch longer.. so i will have to do some work to remold it to fit in the box base,

Hopefully trimacar or one of our other resident upholstery experts sees this thread and points you in the right direction.

I know trimacar has said many times before that you never, ever let someone use foam in a pre-war car.

It should be cotton batting and genuine burlap only.

But one of our experts here can give you details that I will never know.

 

Good luck with the interior, the car is coming along nicely.

. . . . you should find lots of GOOD help and advice on this forum.

 

I can't agree more. I just wish I could find a younger or healthier AACA forum member, who lived near me, who could physically help with the restoration of my 1914 Humberette, as my health is failing and I am finding doing the work more and more difficult to do. If you ever meet the person who said "life begins at 40" - don't believe it!

I believe the name is "hydem welt"  and its comparable alternative is called "wire-on" / Wireon / Wire On

Great to see all the work you have done... love to hear a bit more of the story... how was the wood? Loose at all?

I agree this should be posted in the restoration project forum. My project is going at a much much slower pace..

Apolo, 

    Would you consider moving your post to the Buick Pre War Technical topic postings.  I was not aware of this thread and there are other Buick owners that will participate as  well.  

 

Regarding your fuel pick up line.  That is a brake line soldered on.  The correct dimensions for the fuel pick up line, and the screen you need are in the Big book of parts.  Attached is a link to walk you thru replacement.      Hugh

Probably need a Moderator/Administrator to make such a move. Maybe click on the "Report Post" icon in the top right corner of your posts(need to "hover" over it for it to show up) and ask them to do that?

Interesting that the taillight has Buick Type C on it, late 20's Pierce Arrows have Pierce Type A stamped on them.

I didn't think that many manufacturers stamped their taillights like that.

The Buick type C was a later accessory light. Most often found on 1927s. 485053226_DSCF7539(2).thumb.JPG.6f2a2fe56174bb412cfeac365fff37cd.JPG

Tail/license/BUICK illumination/stop/reverse combo.

What originally came on the 1924  6 cylinder car was this.

Tail light/ Buick illumination/license/only unit.
