  • 28-29 ccpu windshield frame

    I've heard "just buy a repo", so what's a good repo ? I would like to try to restore a "fair", but has a rusty frame. I know it wouldn't be worth my time, but has anyone done this with success ? Any advice or pictures would be welcome. pAAt

    What does "worth your time" mean? Are you charging someone else, or are you working on the truck for your own personal reward and pleasure? I don't mean to be glib or argumentative. But this is what I ask myself when I encounter similar situations working on my cars. For me, it clarifies the decision-making process.

      Ray, it's for my own truck and "worth my time" means being able to produce a nice frame. I will give it a try, but any advice would be helpful to get going in the right direction. I have wood cut for the stove and all winter to work on the window frame and the rolling chassis. Thanks, Pat

      Ray, I looked at them today and one could possibly be salvaged. I will get pictures tomorrow if I remember !! I know the bottom piece, that holds the rubber strip is in bad shape rust wise, but the window channels looked good. I think I need to soak the frame in Evapo-rust for a spell, to start with, and see if the frame still looks good. Sand blast ? Thanks, Pat

    Ray a few pictures for you. The rest of the frame is pretty solid. I'm thinking 3/8" square stock to replace the lower window channel and <1/8" x 1" flat stock (pic 3). I'll give a try and continue looking for another quality frame. Thanks, Pat

      Yowza! I've saved some rusty pieces, but nothing as bad as that. You've got more hole than metal! I wouldn't buy a repro, but I'd sure look for a better original if it were me. Try Bert's.

      Thanks Ray. I'll buy a good used one somewhere, but still try to fix this for now. Pat

    This post has come to a conclusion !! Tom W. has found me a perfect 28 window frame and a yellow book to boot. Friends are hard to find, so keep the ones you have close and enjoy the new ones like your Model AA. Great morning to all, Pat P.S. thanks for chiming in Ray Horton it was much appreciated !! Still will try to patch this one up though. I'm not the brightest star in the sky !!

    FYI - the top of the frame is unique to the 82-A cab. The sides/bottom part is the same for most other 28/29 A's. That would widen the search. If the sides are good, then a donor frame with a good bottom could be used. It could be that the bottom part of a 30/31 frame would make a donor (anyone know?)

    The bottom part of the frame is different.

      As Bob shows, both the swing arm bracket and air deflector are different for the 28-9 vs. 30-1 years.

        I sandblasted the "Great" looking window frame and took it to my painter. He painted it and left it to my discretion, if I wanted more done ? More definitely, but decided to take it to Brent's first for more options. I may leave it as is, because a friend painted it, and look for a better one in the future. "They have to be pristine to even be considered" IMO, Pat...

        I posted this on ********, but of course I have gotten no responses like usual or any useful ones. I am not sure I have posted this message on the correct section, but I see no regular message section. Thus is the first post on this forum, so please forgive me for possibly posting on an incorrect section.

        Need 60-A and 60-B Windshield Frame Measurements
        by Rowdy
        A friend traded a Model T windshield frame for a Model A windshield frame. When he got it home it is definately not a standard Model A windshield frame size and the hinge bracket at the top appears to bolt to wood at the ends, not just scrwe to the header . I am thinking it is likely a 28 Briggs windshield or other fordor frame as it only has a single hole for a hand wiper. Could use a width and height...

        Sagging frame questions
        by Dan Kurth
        I have two frames that need to be straightened, one is down about 3/16" and the other about 1/2". I took the front axle off the first one I'm going to try, and plan to leave the rear attached to hold the back down. I have a sawhorse under the frame under the engine mounts, and I'll hang some weights on the frame horns. So, in heating the frame, how hot should I get it and how big of an area...

        Any suggestions on a good (translation=easy) way to remove the rubber seals around the frame after the glass is removed?

        Difference between a Slant Window Fordoor & A-400 Windshield Frame
        by BAAP
        Is anybody able to tell me the differences between the Slant Window Fordoor & the 1931 A-400 Windshield Frame? From what I can tell the A-400 had a special wiper bracket spot welded to it but dimensionally they are the same correct? Any input would be appreciated.

        Old rubber windshield gasket
        by BillLee/Chandler, TX
        I'm trying to clean up a windshield frame for my '29 Tudor. The one that came with the car was never properly restored and is close to rusting completely away.

        Got a real nice one from Berts and am now working on it. What are the options for getting the old, hard rubber gasket out of the frame? The stuff that's still there is hard and reluctant to remove, stuck in the little channel all...

        Frame tollerances...to strighten or not to strighten...
        by Steve Plucker
        I have just finished the disassembly of my wife's, yes my wife, July 1928 Open Cab Pickup chassis.

        The frame looks very decent after 90 + years.

        Some issues with the rear running board brackets and the front cross member but can be fixed.

        So here are the major issues, if in fact they are major issues at all:

        All measurements taken in a crossways...
