  • 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?

      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
