  • Still looking for missing interior framing 29 Tudor

    I am still gathering missing pieces in anticipation of installing the interior. In some posted photos I have noticed a curved piece across the rear corners between the side and rear window headers, The part in question mounts in a kerfed area of the unpainted wood piece in the center of the photo near the roof structure. Attached photo shows their absence. Were the originals wood? I haven't seen them mentioned in any of the body wood kits.

      It has a metal bracket with a leather type material inserted in the channel for tacking the headliner.

      Mitch, did you replace that material in yours? I have some thick leather I never thought about using for tack strip.

      Mitch, is the piece that Bratton's sells have the metal piece on the backside? I don't see my comment post, might have been in a hurry and forgot to hit the red post button yesterday. I have a big chunk of virgin thick leather, I might use for filler when I redo my upholstery. I'll make sure when I get it out to measure the length and width and take more pictures.

      I thought it did but it is just the end brackets as slammin pointed out.

    Normally most of those are beyond use. I will look later this week to see if I have those still attached to the metal quarter panel pillars (C pillars) that I still have left from salvaging quarter panels. There is not much demand for the quarter pillars, but I have not convinced myself to throw them out as at some point someone will want them. Rod

      I have used a thin piece of plywood which is flexible and will slide into the metal channel. The only use for this is to tack the large curved corner interior panel to. The original looked like some kind of fiber material probably scrap from some other process that he didn't want to throw away. I would say anything you could tack to will work. You will need the two large curved pieces that the metal fits into but if you don't have the metal then maybe just a piece of thicker plywood could be bent and fit in there.

        I am lacking the metal part as well. I have some 13 ply 3/4 inch birch plywood that I will use.

        Mitch,
        The first time I opened the link I just got Brattons web site home page. I just opened it again and saw the two items listed. However, unless I'm mistaken, one is the tack strip that slides inside the metal and the other is a bracket that mounts one end of the metal. I didn't see the metal strip. What am I missing?

    • #7
      OK well i am sorry, your correct it's just the end brackets. The metal strip is not being reproduced I am sure something can be easily made up to work if you don't find them.. It's not to critical of an item

      Update. Berts sells the metal channels

        '28 Tudor body wood installation
        by AV8 Dave
        Hi everyone! I have a '28 Tudor I have been building up for almost 20 years and have been trying to find info regarding installation of the "body" wood (as opposed to the "top" wood) but have so far come up empty. Does anyone know of any source? If not, I have some specific areas that I need help on. I am trying to salvage what I can from a very old complete (top and body)...

        29 Tudor header?
        by slammin
        Still trying to figure out what I need to complete the car. Since the car has a new top, I would have thought all the wood was present. Checking the Fordwood site, they mention "header/front" under the top wood section, but don't show a sketch of what it looks like. I've looked at photos of Tudors that don't have a top or headliner and can't tell if something in mine is missing. I've enclosed...

        Rear window wood '29 Tudor
        by Bill G
        Other than the two screws at the hip of the car, how is the rear window wood attached. I have not yet taken the window out, so I suspect I might find the secret there. Otherwise, I have searched and searched. Lots of pictures of the wood already installed but nothing showing the actual attachment.

        Thanks.

        Another 29 Tudor top wood question
        by Bill G
        The old wood had a padding of sorts between the wood and the sheet metal in places where the main left and right wood rails contacted the sheet metal roof, and anywhere wood was in direct contact with metal. This was for squeak prevention, I believe. It looked a lot like a cross between fiberglass and cotton. I cannot tell really what it was. For restoration purposes, what makes a good filler....

        Vendor recommendation for top wood '29 Tudor
        by Bill G
        I have a '29 Tudor with some very questionable and even rotten wood. I have seen some vendors who sell wood kits. Fordwood, Classic wood Products, and it seems too, all the Model A vendors, Bert's Bratton's, Snyders, Mike's, Mac's, CW Moss, Sacramento, and probably others. It looks like the going price for a top wood kit is just north of $600, especially when considering shipping and hardware....

        Wood in upper of body 28-29Tudor
        by Dennis
        Ok I have some questions beings I’m working in this area now.
        1. My wood is dry and solid, no damage other than some small cracks from nails etc. this car has had the covering on top replaced once before. So now I’ve got several holes to dodge when I put my new top on. Suggestions please on plugging the existing holes with something.
        2. the front corners appear to have had something...

        29 Tudor rear headliner tacking strip
        by Bill G
        Snyder's part number AWD 1027-7 is a wooden strip that replaces what apparently was originally some sort of leather material.

        When I disassembled my interior, the material in mine was hard, brittle and came out in brittle chunks. Both Snyder's and Bratton's version of this is made of thin wood. With the original material, it was thicker in the center part of the channel and the brads...

        nails to install interior wood over quarter vwindow etc ?
        by Tom Bellfoy
        I am finally ready to install the new interior wood in my 31 Victoria. The rows of factory made holes running along the body and at the rear, also on top of the quarter window are too large for the nails heads offered by the vendors. What type of nails are used to install the wood ? Also what should be the nail spacing or at what distance should the nails be ? Any videos available as to what attaches...

        Treating original wood?
        by gdaquilina
        I will soon start removing the original interior of my Town Sedan to install the new Classtique interior expected in late December. Since much of the original wood will be exposed is it worth applying any treatment to it? From a few sections that I have previously exposed the original wood is in very good condition. The threads that I found on the forum seemed to deal with treating new wood or repairing...
