    whats recommended size and type of nail / tack to install visor and under cover to header assembly? I tried 5/8 and 11/16 clipped upholstery tack but every second one pops up while hammering . new header and wood seems pretty hard.. do I have to pre drill?

    I always pre drill.. Use Dads trick, predrill using a nail instead of a bit. This way you won't remove any wood

    I use the usual nails with the swirl on the body

      using nail to pre drill good idea, are you talking about a spiral nail used for hardwood floor ?

    top wood
    by donh
    Has anyone ever tried filling the nail holes in the top wood and then successfully nailed the top material and molding down? I'm working on a 30 170B deluxe. I replaced the header but wonder about the rest of the top wood.

    Is it possible to remove and replace header metal cover under visor without disturbing visor ? And if so can fender welting be used here? 29 Murray Fordor.

    Nice ending to a wood header issue
    by Bill G
    At the tail end of summer I was installing a top wood kit for my '29 Tudor After a lot of work, the last step was to install the header piece. It did, as the Les Andrews book suggests, take some sanding in order to make the bull-nose piece fit properly, and some to get the bottom to fit the contour of the outside ends. After all that, I went to put the piece in place with the 3M sealer, clamps and...

    Any thoughts on using DP90 two part epoxy primer on wood? I think it would achieve the dull black color I am trying to get on the floor of my Station Wagon.

    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....

    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....

    Loose door post
    by Bobm90
    This will be a little (I hope) project for the future. The Right door post appears to be loose because when I close one of the doors on that side the top section of it moves, this may be part of the reason for slight door alignment also. I have attached a photo for clarity. My question is how is the interior covering and piping fastened to the post? And how do I remove it ? The post is made of wood...

    Top molding nails
    by Farmputzer
    I'm installing the original top molding on my 30 Murray town sedan (155C). It is aluminum 'exposed nail' molding. It would seem that the nails used should be doomed, not ftat. Any comments? Is there a source?
