  • 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...

            Open vehicle door striker
            by Charles Reese
            Would somebody please post a photo of the area behind the door striker (inside the panel) on an open vehicle. I need to refresh my memory as to what the screws that hold the striker screw into.

            I’m having difficulty aligning one of my doors so that it closes properly. I believe it is a flat plate with two threaded holes but my truck is upholstered and I would prefer not to take the...

            Bailed out again
            by Mitch
            These are worth their weight in gold. Just bailed me out on the lower instrument panel nuts. Cleaned up the threads quickly and easily, right through the panel holes. Works great all over these cars, from floor boards to door handles. Klein is a top notch tool too. Get both

            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?...
