Thanks all for the info.  The weather here is pretty lousy today so I might take a look in the Marine Stores for a possible solution.  I want to find something that won't have a negative chemical reaction to a fiberglass coating.  Just in case I go that route.  I will check out the large box hardware suppliers and get a read on the Elmer's Damaged Wood Repair system John mentioned.   If I can sand it and stain it that would be a big plus.

I believe kimmc used 2 part epoxy with sawdust as a filler.  Bondo in thin layers to fill holes and cracks?

I used a clear two part expoxy from Home Depot. I got the stuff that was a 5 minute cure.  I only had some dry rot at the end of a spoke (steering wheel).  I used a drill to drill out the rotted stuff.  It was like I was playing dentist and drilling out a cavity.

I have had good results with Elmers Damged Wood Repair system. It comes in two parts, you mix equal amounts together.  It sets in about 10 min and cures in less than an hour.  It can be sanded, drilled and stained. It is available in most big hardware stores for about $17.  Well worth the money.

I was able to get two screws into the broken side of my steering wheel after clamping and gluing the rim into place.  The pictures look really bad but even broken the wheel was actually pretty strong but after getting the two stainless steel screws in place, the wheel is now extremely strong.

I would like to keep this original steering wheel and thought I would find some product that would work well to fill all the wood cracks and then sand the wheel smooth and concentric.  Once this was done I was thinking of fiberglass the rim.

All comments and ideas appreciated.

Passenger Side Hinge Pillar

With the complicated work of creating the left & right side sill plates and also the rear cross sill behind me.  I completed the construction of the passenger side hinge pillar.  Basically I reversed everything I did to the driver's side and applied it to the passenger side.



Once all the wood was positioned properly I squared off the rear body assembly.  Using dimensions I calculated and verified with actual measurements from forum member <29UJohn> who also has a 1929 Plymouth 4 door sedan.  I bolted everything down.

The strength of this rear section is now comparable to a newly constructed car.   I will move on to new work like  rebuilding the rear seat frame assembly and rear window frame which will add even more strength to the rear section of my old car.



Cheers,  Chet...
