  • Brown Door Check Straps

    I found some original brown door check straps for my 1929 Tudor about 12 years ago, either at Hershey or a National Model A meet. If you can't find brown ones, you can try some spray for vinyl. I never could find the correct brown arm rests for the front of my 1950 Studebaker, so I finally bought a can of Bluebird Brown 15483 at the auto parts store. Only black arm rests are reproduced for my Stude, and as far as I know, only black door check straps are reproduced for the Model A. This was a perfect match to my rear arm rests, which are NOS.

    130-A Deluxe Delivery Check Straps
    by Rowdy
    Any one else restoring a 130-A Deluxe Delivery? Contemplating ordering door check straps, the 130-A's use 3 different lengths. Since these are sold in pairs I will have a complete set left over. Is anyone interested in the left overs at equal cost? I still need to verify the length as what I am seeing for higher quality overall may be a bit shorter. Also I am ordering black as I can not mentally put...

    Source for door check straps?
    by Rumbler
    Should I be looking for original door check straps for my early 28 closed cab AA truck or have they gone the way of most ~90 year old rubber parts? RG&JS says heavy molded rubber strap with fabric core, 7-1/2" long.

    learned today..interior door handles
    by Jim Mason
    I've found that the Canadian type A interior door handle is slightly different than the US type A handle. The upper 'pointed' section is slightly smaller, less round, and appears tipped different on the Canadian handle. this can also be seen in the standards Canadian interior and trim section photograph. US on left.

    31 Ford Door no second click when closing
    by Hawaii Pro 31
    I’ve changed the striker, door latch too but it will not click two times as it closes. I, clearanced the outside of the door frame so there is space around the door and adjusted the striker a few times too. You push the door in, click but it will not click again to close the door. Is the door still contacting the body or is the striker the culprit,,,Thank you...

I gotten that far and door fit good now I need to get in the car with the door close and tighten the hinge screws. Does that sound crazy??????...

    by albjerryg
    I have the 1955 Victoria just got it and trying to fix the little things wrong with it. The passenger door does not close properly. It hits like a thud. The wheel on the door is loose and the door button stays pushed in. Does any one have a good diagram or picture that shows how the door mechanic work are a site that might have it. I have ordered a new/used door latch assembly. Thanks for any help....
