  • Station Wagon - "Ode-de-Bondo"

    The past few days I have been doing the Bondo work on the cowl section. Fall is quickly arriving and if I hope to get some Manilla Brown on the cowl, I gotta get moving.

    The distinctive smell of Bondo is referred to as "Ode-de-Bondo" in this household.

    There are a few things that needed to get done before the Bondo work could start. First was the riveting of...

  • Station Wagon - Building a Roof

    Last week I picked up several pieces of wood needed for my Woody. Spend a day unwrapping it and seeing what exactly was there. A major part of the haul was the roof wood: The long sides of the roof that run from the windshield to the rear of the Wagon, as well as the front and rear headers and the top bows and slats.



    What I will have to make are three additional pieces that...

  • Station Wagon - Front Windshield Frame

    Labor Day has passed and summer is nearing the end. So now my attention turns to Model A's. I am planning on painting the cowl section this fall, so am fitting up all the pieces and making sure it all fits before I start to squirt paint.

    A couple of years ago I picked up a front windshield frame that was for a '29, and have made modifications to make it fit my '31 opening. It was a...

  • Station Wagon - Tailgate Chains

    This morning I am trying to figure out how I am going to build the tail gate chains for my Woody.

    The information, from an article written in the Woody Wagons in 1986, I have follows:
    • There are 18 links of chain on each side,
    • The links were made from 5/16 material with the loops welded together where the chains interlock, instead of along the sides as links found at the hardware

  • Station Wagon - Seat Legs

    Summer is a slow time for me making progress on my car hobby. But yesterday I had an opportunity to paint the legs that go on the bottom of the seats.



    The legs and all the hardware on the late '31 wagons were painted Manila Brown. I used the Lacquer I picked up from JB-OB to paint these legs and also sprayed out a sample that can be color matched so I can get Manila Brown...

  • Station Wagon -- Finger Joints

    It looks like we are going to have to, or get to, build the wood body for this Station Wagon. The drawings are available, so it's time to figure out how to make things.

    The first thing up are the finger joints. The arches that go over the rear fenders are made up of two or three smaller pieces of wood, finger jointed together. I think there are 10 finger joints on the Station Wagon...

  • Station Wagon - Door check mechanisms

    “I spy with my little eye” a part for my Woody.



    Was looking at Craigslist and spotted these parts I needed for my build.


    Someone took a Station Wagon cowl and made a farm truck. These were the only Woody unique parts left.

    Here is a pic of one installed



    If you are needing a running gear, he wants $1,000 for what’s...

  • Station Wagon - Passenger Seats nearing completion.

    It's been a while since an update, been busy with Spring activities and haven't spent much time on the Woody. I am getting closer on the seats.

    The passenger seats are now together and mounted on the floor.



    Many thanks to vonheine for information on the angle of the back seat that had me stuck a few weeks ago. Ended up somewhere between 12 and 14 degrees. As...

  • Station Wagon - Rear Seat

    Been working on the rear seat the past few days. This unit is made of a wood seat frame attached to a wood back rest. The bottom edge of the back rest has to be cut at an angle to get the proper tilt back on the seat.

    The head scratcher is the angle of the back rest to the seat frame. I have some information that the angle should be 5 degrees, but that is too straight.

    Valve and seat grinder (MINE)

    Made it home Safely !! It rained the whole way there and back A great day for sure. I enjoyed the time talking with his son, his dad is in Florida. He didn't know much about the grinder, but said his dad used it a lot. He built over 200 tractors and still had a few sheds full yet. When I got home, I did some cleaning and oiling of the grinder. I then ground one valve and it turned out nice, so...
