  1. Thought maybe someone might need this info. Funny to think our grandfathers cussed those darn GM clips way back when. 20210120_162337.jpg 20210120_162353.jpg 20210120_162337.jpg 20210120_162353.jpg

    Yes a certain amount of tongue flapping was as big a part as actually getting in place . :D

    If you do need to buy some look around and try to find some new real ones. Over on the Fordbarn a member sells real ones

    I broke a door spring on the rear door lock in my '46 Station wagon. It's different than passenger car and I searched everywhere with no luck. On a whim I went to Job-Lot in Queens, NY just before they shut down. The parts guy pulled a big box from under the counter that had dozens of springs, with the car they fit and a description under the lid. He charged me a buck each so I purchased 6 and have sent out three to fellow "Woodie" owners, that couldn't find the same spring. I miss Job-Lot, lot's of N.O.S. parts.
