All 4 Door 1929 Cars:

  • Wheel fenders, center door pillars, door frames, and dash - BLACK
    My assumption is the front fender screws are chrome plated and not painted.  I believe the fenders were painted prior to installing on the car during manufacture.
  • Body, wheel rims and wood, - PRIMARY BODY COLOR   ( Wheel Hubs ?? )
  • All raised body trim areas - SECONDARY COLOR
Pictures showing unique details would be appreciated. 

Suggestions on paint would also be helpful.

Tks Chet...



Wheel fenders and dash BLACK

Center door pillars & Door frames PRIMARY BODY COLOR

My fender screws are chrome plated, with traces of Black paint on them. I believe they were painted. By who not sure.

Body, wood spokes/wheel, wheel hubs PRIMARY BODY COLOR The split rim I painted black, it was olive primer when I got it. Don't know what its suppose to be. I never plan on painting the car, so the decision was easy.

All raised body trim areas - I only see the body color on mine, the raised areas were pin striped.

Those are my answers according to Muriel, take it any way you want. I took a bunch of pictures tonight, but lack the ambition to transfer, reformat, resize etc. I will transmit them to you another way. Took her to the filling station tonight to top off and fill my gas cans (In the open air trunk) Put on a one car, car show for a short while. Lots of questions and pictures. Even had a teenager interested (Ray of hope)

As far as the color, pick your favorite stock combination. You are the one that has to look at it  ;D

I see no such contraption on my car. Assuming I'm looking in the correct spot, just 2 holes...

I can take a peek again for you, she is due to see some sun light. I'm sure I took pictures of the fender hardware for you and posted them in one of your threads. I want to say there were traces of paint on them.

Hard to say, they don't come up often. On eBay I found a new old stock dash coil, less the trim, key, pot metal and all that see it here >     http://www.1948plymouth.info/28Q29U/index.php?topic=811.msg7227#msg7227  and I think it I got for $60 something? (can't remember)
 
I would guess a complete coil with key working would bring 150 - 200. Just a random guess. A purest would want one, most cars I see come up for sale have a fake switch in place.

Mine is missing from the muffler back. Something I also need to get resolved if I ever want to drive with the windows up....

"Dave did you get a throw out bearing from these guys ?"

I didn't replace it, but all bearing parts front and rear I did replace where from them. Probably pictures and part numbers in the old build thread. I know tractor guys use them as well for hard to find parts. They were good to deal with, but its been a few years since I have used them. Have a feeling I will be back soon.

I didn't replace mine when I did the bearing. (I should have) I see myself pulling the whole rear end out sometime in the next couple years. Pinion is spraying oil, seals leaking etc.

When I pull the seal I will take it to these guys (see link below) rarely stumped, can usually cross reference an oil felt seal to a modern one. If you have the exact dimensions or maybe an old part number they can get you squared away.

I've actually spent more time than usual working in the garage this winter. Just not related to progress on the Plymouth. I come to realize it needs a substantial amount of work to make it right. (a lot of that would be budget & time) I can get by a little a longer with trailer trips to little shows, where oil leaks are common and unnoticed  :)

Have been working on tractors and old gas engines. Clearing the progress Que and making the room for the eventual Plymouth tear down.

Also have finally got my compressed air setup complete. Was having issues with moisture in the lines, under heavy use. (blasting cabinet) I have a homemade (copper) water condenser and scored a previously enjoyed Ingersoll rand commercial air dryer / refrigerator. So I should be set. Also ran a rapid air kit for additional outlets and high flow to the end of the garage for outdoor sand blasting use. Maybe we should start a garage tools thread, curious to see what some of you guys have for tool setups.

As Frank mentioned earlier, its been a winter here. Broke a record for snowfall in February, which was during and after the polar vortex. Actual air temperatures of -30 F. Fun stuff. Snow blower really earned an oil change this year. So roof raking and dealing with ice damns is another great way to spend free time. And now its going to rain and rapidly warm up. Flooding anyone?........

Do you remember roughly how much that whole get-up cost to get resleeved?

I could probably find the receipt somewhere in the garage tomorrow. But I think it was just over $600. 620-630ish.

That was all of it. Summer of 2014.

These guys do good work. You could call get a price on SS re sleeve.

Pictures from a few years back when I redid my whole brake system. They made the hoses, rebuilt the master cylinder and all the wheel cylinders sleeved with stainless steel.

I forgot to move them into my shared public folder. Thought of it after I posted last night.

Using google to host pictures is much easier than anything else. Phone cloud syncs photos automatically and does any file conversions necessary.

I will continue to convert and upload to the sites picture host with the important stuff, continue building the database.
