  • Hood Latches

    Are hood latches body paint color or black? '29 RPU I think I can get these Gaslight front fenders to work. The welting should fill in pretty well.

      I'm on the road and don't have access to it at the moment. It just dawned on me as I think I have these fenders figured out....knock on wood. (my head)

    The new name for the book is the "Restoration Guidlines and Judging Standards". Those that have been around know the greater value of the book as used for restoration then for judging but the name change came about due to those new to the Model A figuring that they would never have their car judged so why spend money on a book called "Judging Standards and Restoration Guidelines" seems that the major purpose is for judging.

    Hood latch
    by Art Ebeling
    I have four hood latches two have the seam in the barrel on the hood side and two have the seam on the fender side. All four might be reproduction as the hook that fits on the hood is not very well formed, they are kind of straight, not curved. How do I tell if they are original or not? Thanks, Art

    Hood Shelves
    by Beauford
    In between my blocks the shelf is raised a little off the splash. Yes they are repop. Any ideas to resolve this? Same on both sides and all bolts in correct holes. Hood is not on yet but hoping since the blocks are down good that the latching will at least push it down....

    Hood Hinges
    by carolinamudwalker
    On the center line of the hood there are 4 riveted hinges. 2 at the front and 2 at the rear. Are these available anywhere? I have two at the front that someone tried to weld but they cracked again.

    Hood Identification
    by Bobm90
    This is a picture of the hood on my 30 Town sedan, please note the holes in it surrounding the louvers, these appear to be factory made and are on both sides, the hood fits fairly well, I haven't seen these on any A hoods or replacements maybe you more experienced guys have , any info would be welcomed, thanks.

    28 Model A with 30 fenders and stanchions.
    by pooch
    If you have ever wondered what an early A would look like with 30 fenders, here it is.

    SS 30 stanchions are fitted too.

    The next info will probably only be of use to OZ guys....

    Has a HR front end with CRS 2 inch dropped spindles.

    With this setup, I got it as low as I wanted it at the front WITHOUT having to fit lunchboxes....

    Rear of hood?
    by Ted Duke
    My sons are helping me reassemble my 1929 roadster PU which was disassembled in the early seventies (yes, I know, some of you weren't born yet) and I have a question. I can't find the answer in any of the many books I have purchased. The center hood rod slides into the hole in the front. What happens in the back at the cowl. Does it just sit there? I saw a suggestion that you tie a little loop of...
