  • Door Panels

    anyone know a good way to match up the door strap holes on A pilliar panel as they don't come with holes. Need a way to mark the panel.

    Sure, place a screw in each of the holes, install the panel and smack the panel over the screw to mark the hole.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Stick a piece of masking tape on the door frame next to the holes,and mark with a pen where the holes are, and measure how far from the edge of the tape to the hole, When the panel is on the door, find the spot and use a small punch or awl to find the hole.

        Oh here we go again... I made some pins with a center point on the head to leave a center punch on the panel. They just go loose in the screw hole. I'll have to see if I can find them. I need them anyway when I do my Model A interior.

            Victoria door handle
            by BillEbob
            Guys in the club told me how ‘easy’ it is to remove door handle for locksmith to repair lock cylinder.

            Apparently they didn’t know that the handle is held on with nuts inside the door panel! (Is the 190A different than their “standard A’s?”)

            My question is: how to remove passenger door panel to retrieve nuts and re-attach? Is it similar to ‘60’s Fords, i.e....

            Metal snaps on door panels
            by Ed Saniewski
            I was working with some door panels from a 1931 160B Town Sedan, and I came across these metal male snaps along the edge of the rear door and rear quarter panel interior panels. I have never seen anything like this. Anyone seen these before and have an idea what these were for?...

            Coupe rear outer panel?
            by Mickey
            Can anyone tell me what kind/size screw is used to attach the TOP of the curved inner panel to the inside TOP of the outer panel? As you can see in the picture there are 6 very small holes maybe 1/16 in size to mark the location. I assume a sheet metal screw?

            Door upholstery pockets
            by Poor Boy
            Good morning guys. My 31coupe has an older upholstery kit in it which is still in very good usable shape. The one place that is a bit shabby is the two door pockets. The elastic at the opening on both of them has failed and they hang loose and baggy. Has anyone had success in repairing it without totally dismantling the door panels. I do not have access to a heavy enough sewing machine to restitch...

            Door aligment
            by albjerryg
            Having trouble aligning passenger door so it will close properly. I tried flowing the manual but it gone from bad to worse. I had an idea of losing the screws on the hinge door side then closing the door with the screws loose so the door will fit correctly. I gotten that far and door fit good now I need to get in the car with the door close and tighten the hinge screws. Does that sound crazy??????...

            Where Does The Pinstripe End?
            by Leo
            When stripping the car (1930 coupe) and you come to the end of a body part like a door, does the strip end at the edge of the door or wrap around to the back of the door edge? Same question for the quarter panel where it meets the door, does it end at the end of the panel or wrap around the the door jam? Where the cowl meets the front edge of the door?...

            original panel clips
            by Jim Mason
            Marco can set me straight, but it appears the metal cap was installed in the door, the ring nail pushed through through the panel board, then upholstered. then the ringed nails were then pushed into the caps.

            31 SW Wood Armrest Installation
            by JohnB15632
            I am trying to figure out how to install the wood arm support in my 31 SW.
            What I have learned so far it that there is an upholstery panel that covers the area under the third window. There is a metal strap that supports the arm behind the panel. A wood screw goes thru the strap, thru the panel, into the wood armrest support. As the screw is tightened, the strap is pulled tight against the...

            by Art Ebeling
            I’ve made some progress on the interior. I have a Lebaron Bonney kit. I have had every panel on and off several times to trim, cut, and refit . I Have the original panels to guide me and have been able to follow the original nail holes in some of the wood. In the picture the door panel is not attached, it is just hanging fo a trial fit as is the panel above the door. I called Lebaron Bonney last...
