Geoff57,

I have not repaired my roof yet, the work posted has all been Chet. I have just taken a few pictures and measurements.

See his details here > http://www.1948plymouth.info/1929/Work_files/2017/08312017.htm

and the main thread here > http://www.1948plymouth.info/28Q29U/index.php?topic=1102.90

If there is a specific original part that I can measure or take a picture of let me know.

Good luck!

Another update...had the car out over the weekend.  Cold starting, hot starting, no problem..car has never started this easy and should have done this years ago.  If you need to change your cables, or just want new ones, please do it and get big one's (I went with 2/00).  You and you car will be happier :)

CrazyDave,
Your information on how to do the roof is great. 'Chester Brzostowski' put me onto this topic. Best I could find was  Roof Insert Kit 35-36 plymouth & Dodge 4 door sedan. at http://houseoftops.com/roof-inserts/ .
Could you please advise what/how do you progress after installing all the bows eg.
hessian
tar compound
how thick
tricks and hints
I have original left and right main front to back roof pine rafters with no obvious pre-attachments. There is also other differences in brackets and mounting on the Australian assembled 1929 Q's.
Regards

A cautiously optimistic update.  The new cables were installed two days ago. The battery was put on the tender and charged up.  About an hour ago, I went out to start the car thinking I would be getting just the starter turning over faster and easier.  Well, it was much better than that. As soon as I hit the starter button, she fired right up. She didn't even turn over a full turn and she was running.  Obviously, I was/am very happy.  Even when I had a new battery, it was never this easy.

Again, cautiously optimistic.  Hopefully this will be the new norm, but we'll see.  At this point, I only changed the battery cables and have not added the passenger side ground strap yet.

I'm poor person to respond after my generator melt down.  Gen shop said it was a ground, re-winder said short?!

Before the troubles, mine hit upwards of +12 - 15a when hot.  This range also for borrowed gen and cut-out.  Usually cruise with lights on even during daytime.  Brings it down to +-1 - 2a, except at idle when it will go to -20 with lights on.  After traveling all those miles on just the battery, I'll be more concerned with overcharging than under.
