        Well .............. don't be surprised if a few eager Senior Model A owners ask for your exact street address, and how to get there ..... heck, I mean, where in our USA today can a Model A owner return from a vacation ............ and find that after being gone, that he has ........ "lots of parts on the front porch"!

          I live in "the sticks" and have video surveillance. I left the key in the running chassis parked outside and tarped. I'd love to see someone try to start it these days or unfamiliar with old tech. That would be a funny video!!

          The panels in the RPU are held in with barbed nails into sockets that are snapped into the holes in the inner door panel. The original sockets were metal, but the new replacements are plastic. The nails have slightly domed heads and are painted black.

            Thanks Tomany. I see Lebron Bonney sells something like that but they are screws.

          Finally installing interior
          by Swastler
          so I figure my new reality won’t offer the roadster to be repainted any time soon and I’ve had a LB interior kit in the rafters of garage since 1983. Pulled the boxes down and everything looked new still, albeit not close to original in many ways, it’s still new. I got the door panels and cowl panels in place, but will need to pull out wood to seal before going further. Here’s a couple shots...

          Original Interior
          by Art Ebeling
          my 31 Victoria project came with two black trash bags of old interior parts I had not opened. Imagine my delight in seeing this, the best instructions you could ever follow. Every interior panel, carpet and windlaces with every screw or clip or snap hole. I have a new Lebaron Bonney kit and it will be modified as needed by using these patterns.

          Interior Cab Panel/Card Material, Late 30 Closed Cabg
          by 1930 Closed Cab PU
          Am researching, trying to find info on my Pick Up interior as it looked like as Henry made it. What I remember from seeing other trucks that have been refurbished, interior panels/cards on those trucks were vinyl covered panels, or plastic panels. Also these trucks, have every possible inside Cab space covered with material/cards.

          I think my truck, which has a couple of door cards...

          Compete Seat
          by Beauford
          any companies sell a complete Roadster P/U seat and just not the springs. Looking just for black vinyl...Also. Should I paint all areas in the interior? Even areas covered buy panels? Never painted the inside of a bare car.

          My new project - full interior.
          by Bill G
          The last couple years was the exterior and the drive train. Now it's time for the interior. Yesterday I placed my order with Mike at Classtique. Needless to say, I will have a couple months to ready everything for the new upholstery and everything else. This evening I removed the upholstery from the back seat (29 Tudor). This promises to be a project indeed. I read with great interest the series...

          Ford Archives
          by gdaquilina
          Do the blueprints at the Ford Archives include the details of the Briggs and Murray built bodies? I'm interested in the interior dimensions, especially the front doors of the 155-C. Do the Archives go into the backer board dimensions for the upholstered interior panels?...
