I don't know about stickers, but I had decals made this winter that I have not tried yet.  Contact Bill at Precision Design if you would like to purchase.

The spokes are not glued, but held together by precise milling at time of assembly with the hub and felloe.  Through the years, the wood may loose moisture and become "loose" if you remove the brake drum and center hub.  If you go this far, be sure to mark each spoke so you will know the exact order to re-assemble them.

Don't know original assembly process.

Well, good pictures.

On the floor board, Yes, throttle, footrest and Starter Pedal switch - it is mounted on the engine bell housing.  What you see protrudes through the floor board.

From what I can see, your Choke is next to the Ignition Key and Timing adjustment to left of Ammeter/Oil cluster.  You can follow the cables to see where they go.
 This is reverse of my setup.

You are correct about the wiper switch.  It screws out to allow the vacuum to activate the wiper motor.  The toggle is for the dash light.

I would like to buy 2 good "bumper plates" (picture attached).  The face on the ones I have is flat, not slightly curved like one I bought off the internet.  Thanks.  Kim Mc

moparfreak77,  Congrats and welcome, nice find!  Great to see another unrestored original.

Would follow Dave and Tom's good advice before going too far.

I'll give dash buttons a shot - left of steering wheel on bottom of dash is the vacuum wiper switch and instrument panel light switch.  On the dash to the right is the Choke and Spark Advance/Retard.  The 3rd??

The bumpers you picture look to be from 28Q.  The FEDCO number from the dash would tell what the car is.

How does the wiper switch work? It screws out like a car adjuster screw.

And I think the left knob adjusts the timing and the right is the choke? The timing cable is broke at the distributor but I can turn the distributor by hand.

Hello
No, the spokes are good, need to sandblast the metal, fix the hinges and paint the wood and metal parts.
Do you know if the spokes are glued together or how have they assembly the wheels from the beginning?
