  • Roadster pickup Door handle install...

    The inside handles are straight forward but the outside ones are a bit of a mystery. Brookville says...Insert special punch through handle hole in latch and mark outer skin for location...use punch and die on out side skin...where would these two pieces marry? I have zero idea where I would punch through. Also, what are the two holes in the 3rd pic for and there is another hole on top of door where it opens. I have no clue...

    Hey Beauford, those 2 holes on the outside are for side curtains.

    You have a Roadster Pickup, you DON'T need outside door handles, DO NOT drill any more holes in those pretty doors. Just reach inside and use that handle to get in and out.

    You can't lock up a ragtop!!
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

    They sent me a email....I'm a visual learner. At least draw me some stick figures. I'm trying to find pics of Model A bodies mounted on the blocks. I never had a model a so not sure other than the welt, rubber, block, cab, bolt...I have one of the diagrams but I like real photos. To show you how much I know I just discovered I need blocks for the hood....Mitch, how much a hour to come down and put this together for me. LOL I got the muscle.

      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...

      Inside door metal identification
      by Afordman31
      Pretty certain these are Model A Ford but don’t know if they are for the Pickup, Coupe, or Sedan? Any help would be appreciated! Just uploaded two more pictures. I compared these panels to my 1931 Closed Cab Pickup and they are not the same, the difference is the spacing between the opener handle and the window riser handle. My pickup center to center is app. 8 3/4" where the panels that I...

      Right side front door looking handle.
      by JohnB15632
      The right side front door is the door that gets locked. The locking handle needs to be modified in order to be installed and yet have clearance for the locking mechanism.

      Does anyone out there in model A land know the dimensions to modify the stem of the door handle?

      Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can adjust a sagging outside door handle. It is not real bad, but I would like to make it perfect. I was thinking about twisting the shank a bit????

      Removing Door Handles and Repairing Door Latches and Locks
      by Tom Wesenberg
      I had to replace some broken springs in my 1929 Tudor. To remove the handle, just remove the 2 screws on the outside, then turn the handle 45 degrees, wiggle it as you pull outward. Spraying Kroil on the square shaft helps during removal, as does holding the flap inward to relieve some pressure. Then you can remove the screws on the latch assembly and work the latch out of the door. It's very tight...

      Door lock
      by jordanka16
      Does anyone know the reasoning behind only being able to unlock the passenger side from the outside? It would be one thing if I always had a passenger to unlock the driver side, but I'm always having to slide in and out of the car, since if I want to lock it I can only use the passenger door.

      OK rant over
