  • Door striping

    Below is a photo of where I just removed the old door stripping. It was hard and rotted. I thought it was time to replace it but....didn't find anything like that on Snyders so I was thinking, was there such a strip for weather/sound proofing or was this a previous owners addition? The stripping was only along the door edge, not the bottom or upper edges.

    Someone added the rubber strip. Now you'll have to touch up the paint.

      Got a whole quart of touch up leftover from Larry restoring the firewall. Perfect match.........

        I had plans on replacing it since it was so dried out, it was no longer helping with the driver's side rattle. Just was wondering why it wasn't offered at Snyders.

        Thanks all.............

          Suppliers offer "D" shaped, hollow, self sticking weatherstripping, in 2 widths. I used it on Minerva & it made the doors QUIET & shut out the COLD air! You hardly notice it's there! It's in their catalogs, but kinda' hard to locate.

        Picked some cushion stuff up today, it's on, I will know later if it works, I'm sure it will. Far more serviceable than what was on there. Not like what came off but looks better. I know she'll have points deducted at the next judging but..............she doesn't care!!! ;)

            More like rubber insulation stripping, a bit more sturdy.

              If you use it, you'll THANK me for makin' your car SO quiet & warmer!! You can use the wider size, on the bottom of your doors.
              On Minerva, my '30 Coupe, I also stapled an old blanket across the rear side of the seat, to keep COLD air from the trunk, from coming in around the sides of the backrest!

                  Yo!! Bill...what I applied did real well, I was amazed that all the clatter and thumps were coming from the doors. I thought it was the body coming loose from the frame but...I'm going to replace it with your suggestion anyway, can't hurt, only improve...IMO.

                      Door aligment
                      by albjerryg
                      Having trouble aligning passenger door so it will close properly. I tried flowing the manual but it gone from bad to worse. I had an idea of losing the screws on the hinge door side then closing the door with the screws loose so the door will fit correctly. 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??????...

                      Footman loops
                      by Bill G
                      I didn't want to hijack another thread so I started this one. My 29 Tudor had no footman's loops with it when I bought the car almost three years ago. During this restoration, I got a hold of the rather thick rubber loops that all the vendors sell. They are certainly going to hold that door from flying open, but they are so thick and un-pliable that they really get in the way of my feet when I...

                      Door Dove Tail Rubber Bumpers and Metal Clip
                      by P. Crosby
                      I think I found my answer looking at Val and Mark's Roadster pictures. In the door is the two rubber bumpers and the metal clip that retains them that mates with the dove tail when closed. Where they assembled and then painted or assembled after the door was painted. Val's looked unpainted. I just want to be sure that was also the case on a coupe and tudor door. Thanks for your help. Paul Cr...

                      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....

                      by Supergnat
                      I am really embarrassed to write this but I desperate need of advice. I accidentally drove my 28 Fordor Leatherback into the garage with the driver side rear door open. The door caught on the edge of the garage opening molding and bent the door back over the rear fender. I was able to straighten the edge of the door where it contacted the fender but the door will not close anymore. The upper and...

                      Door Bumpers on a Pickup
                      by 30Pickemup
                      I’m going to adjusting the cab to fit the doors and the hood now that everything is painted.
                      My issue now is to not chip the paint in the process - so I thought it would be a good idea to install the door bumpers to protect the cab and the doors.

                      I have the parts shown in the pictures - as the door bumper kit. (I put captions under them)
                      I figured out where the top corner...

                      Passenger Side Sliding Lock
                      by Superhart
                      I have a 1930 5-window coupe street rod. I have installed a locking door handle on the driver's side door and would like to install a sliding inside door lock on the passenger door. Has anyone done this modification? I just purchased a matched R/L locking handle set from Speedway. Is it possible to install a sliding lock on the passenger door? If anyone has any photos of the door interior metal with...

                      Victoria door handle
                      by BillEbob
                      Guys in the club told me how ‘easy’ it is to remove door handle for locksmith to repair lock cylinder.

                      Apparently they didn’t know that the handle is held on with nuts inside the door panel! (Is the 190A different than their “standard A’s?”)

                      My question is: how to remove passenger door panel to retrieve nuts and re-attach? Is it similar to ‘60’s Fords, i.e....
