If you do remove the dampening top springs don't discard them. When I had my springs built that was the only item they couldn't duplicate.

Unfortunately I think you may have ordered the wrong size.  Check the catalog or website.

I will email your description to J&M Machine and ask them what they are using on my engine.

What is so different about these bolts that make them so hard to find. 

Form, Fit, Function, Thread size ?

Me Too !

We'll see, I would have liked to have the 29 ready to go but maybe next year.  My wife definitely will not want to drive that distance in the P15 but who knows what might happen.  I wouldn't show the 48 it has a 6vdc negative ground alternator and the engine is Chrysler blue.  I know wrong, wrong. but good driver.  If it wasn't for me the car would be in the crusher.

I did everything except the final paint.   Spent $$ on paint which over time blisters in spots ?

Long horror story...  Might have it repainted if the 29 comes out as expected.  Breaks my heart after 8 years of weekend work.

With all this extra horse power I might have to go with dual carburetors.

Frank thanks for the photo of the light board.

Look'in good guys . Hay! Chet hope your gett'in rid of those Phillip Screws . Have some straights from my carriage building days if needed .

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the offer.  I purchased a lot of slotted wood and machine screws from in the needed sizes.  Yes I do have to go around and replace a couple of those Philips screws.  They are actually a quarter inch to small.  At the time I was short the proper screws.  Now I just need to get around to some of the odds and ends.  Those being one of them.

Boy nothing get past you guys,  Chet...   :)

You guys are Good !!!

This is the dome light that came with my car.  Hopefully it is correct for the 29U

It's been sitting in an old tool box since I got the car.  Yes there is a metal tab on each door column but the one on the passenger door is broken.  I guess I will bend them back into the up direction.  I thought they were for a cross member.

Very Cool...

This afternoon while laying out the roof bows I realized that a bracket that is attached to the top of the center door post has nothing to attach to.  I originally thought that this attached to a cross bow but neither Dave's pictures or another picture I have show a cross bow in this area?

The question is where does it attach to or is it something that was added to support the roof that a previous owner installed ??  Any comments.  See pictures below:

The Top Center Door Pillar.

A picture of another 29 Sedan.  No cross bow in the area of the center door post ??
This is not Dave's car but the bows alien with the measurements Dave sent me.

Anyone have any wisdom to add,  Chet...

Below is a link to a prior post with a lot of information concerning this topic.  Please review from the bottom up.

John states:

"The Judging Guide for 28-39 states for "Internal Trim and Instruments" states, "Nickel-plated parts should be nickel" but does not state which parts those are.  No mention is made for the 28-29.  However, for 34, 36 and 37 the guide does state,"Interior bright work must be nickel plated."  I guess if the 1937 had nickel interior trim, the 28-29s would too". 

I have been told by POC nickel plate inside chrome outside.

Dave sent me some excellent pictures of his original roof along with measurements.  I created this diagram to be my work note reference for the positioning of the roof bows during the construction of the roof for my 29 sedan.  If anyone has any additional info I would greatly appreciate it.  I already have a template for the slight arc of the roof.

See diagram below and any comments welcomed.

Hopefully the weather warms up this week as we head toward the weekend.

Thanks, Chet...
