                      Mitch, do most buy the wood parts, or make their own? I am working on my rolling chassis and my intentions are to find a tudor body. We have a large woodshop and a sawmill. I would love to pattern these out and make some parts. I know they get expensive from the vendors.

                        Most people do not have the skill, time or resources to make their own wood, this includes me. Classic Wood makes a decent kit for the Tudor that fits pretty damn well IMO with minimal adjustments. The cost of the Tudor wood is also very reasonable compared to the full wooded bodied fordors. By all means if you want to do it and have the resources go for it why not. I did save all the wood out of my car so if there are pieces you need to pattern i would be willing to send them to you.

                          No kit in my experience will fit your car perfectly, however I have a brother who is a cabinet maker and he does my woodwork and we completely rewooded a 1927 ford fordor will get some pics of that. He has talent and skill I am just related which works out nice for me.

                            first off nice pictures. after doing a few tudors, and making all the wood for the cars. I would say buy a kit, unless you do wood work and just want to do it. The price for kit is cheap if you count your labor cost. It will take a lot of time to make all the wood.

                              Agree 100% with George and the fit from classic wood is really good

                            George is right about that and I rewooded a 25 coupe model t's varied in their wood construction, since the wood in my 27 was dry rotted we still had good patterns, as for my brother it is something he loves to do.

                                29 Tudor

                                Here are some pictures of the rear inside of my 2-23-29 Tudor.
                                Notice my car has both the slot and bracket to fasten the top of the rear seat.
                                This was built during the transition from the slot to the bracket, so mine still has the slot.
                                Notice the sound deadening pads and the amount of body color that they received.
                                It wasn't until I removed my outside door handle that I saw the original Rose Beige paint and orange pinstripe.
                                Notice the last picture shows the bolt that fastens the bottom of the backrest, and part of the backrest has broken and is still with the bolt.

                                  28 Tudor

                                  Here are some pictures that should help show the location of the metal brackets for the rear side panels. My early 29 Tudor came with the upholstery all removed, and I always wondered where the 2 curved thin metal channels went. This picture shows them as supports for the lower part of the side quarter panel.
                                  The thing I question is that long screw poking down from the corner bracket. Going over a big bump, that screw could be a head hazard.

                                    I noticed that no one ever treated the wood linseed oil or marine varnish before installing wood, I have never done it myself it appears that Bent does do this. any pro's cons or like me just got excited and never did it.

                                      Has anyone answered this question about treating the wood? I am at the point of going to be doing the final fitting and sanding for uniformity, etc, and it seems logical to treat the wood after all the adjusting is done, but it sure did not look like the 89-year old wood was ever treated.....

                                      yes, '29 , not '30, early '31 . Note cowl lite locations, rear pillars, firewall, etc. Folks are lucky to have a shop like Brent's in their area which likes to work on classics, especially Model A's .
