    Here is a better picture of the nut keeper for the hinge machine screws. Once I got it all set I disassembled everything, got the final sanding done and gave it a coat of linseed oil.

    How much does your Dad "rent" for? Sure could have used both his skills and mind several years ago even though I think cabriolets have less wood than a roadster. Both all Henry steel with tan one bone stock and blue one rodded. Your project is coming along GREAT.

    The wooden part of all the doors is officially done. Two coats of linseed oil and they are reinstalled in the doors. These will go on the shelf until I get them swinging....then do the body work, I’m thinking about trying leading.

    Great job on the doors. My friend did his in steel which was much easier.

    Drool....my all time favorite Ford classy and sleek...could never wrap my head around why some of the '50's and '60's guys back east would stick a Deuce grille on

  21. ‘Cause when they channeled them “east coast style” the grille would hang down too far usually.

    I got back on the roadster the last couple days. Made the b-pillar wood and made an extra set for a fellow H.A.M.B’er. [​IMG][​IMG]

    For some reason I can’t find this style 5/16-24 t-nuts. I have enough original ones for the project. I had some left over from my 3-window.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I was able to get an original set of b-pillar castings from a friend in California. These things are cast from unobtainium, so I was very surprised to get an original set.[​IMG]

  25. Those are very similar to the "T" nuts in old cable spools for big wire or phone cable. I would bet there are still a few of those around, or someone sort of like me has a drawer of them. Check that auction site for "5/16" cable spool barrel nuts"?

    Thanks, I have enough used for this project. I wouldn’t mind having some on the shelf. I have a bunch of stuff from Roy in the past, but didn’t see these on his catalog
