Yes, that would be great!  Flat pattern is fine (folded for mailing), maybe dotted lines to indicate location of bends.  Thanks a lot, Chet.  Kim Mc

Happy Holidays to you and your family too Chet.  And thank you especially for managing and maintaining this site.  It is really great to be able to exchange information with other early Plymouth owners.  Best regards, Kim Mc

Hey, thanks Chet for clearing that up.  Now I have to find the passenger side pan somewhere.  KMc

I have what I think is the passenger side "splash pan" that goes alongside the engine at the oil pan level in my '29 coupe (picture attached).  However, I just have the one and I have no idea what the piece on the other side looks like or even if there is one on the driver's side.  If one of you could send me a picture of the driver's side splash pan, I would appreciate it.  Then I can start looking for a replacement.  Thanks for the help.  Kim Mc

General Discussion / paint colors for vintage plymouths

I have searched the internet for good examples of color combinations for my old Plymouth.  I recently looked at TCP Global as I used their paint on another vehicle.  Many of you probably already know of this site but I was excited to find what I believe is the exact color combination for my 1929 business coupe (chrome green dark).  Here is the link (you can enlarge the samples by double clicking to get a larger image to look at).   Now you just have to decide which color fits your car.  Kim

FrankP; re your request for a picture of the "rim lever" referred to by others.  Go to page 21 of this forum; second item from top of page is a post about "tool kits" started by member 1930.  In that discussion I posted a picture of a rim jack on one of my '29 wheels (April 10, 2010, I think).  Download the picture so you can enlarge it.  Then you can clearly see the "lever" in the disengaged position so the rim jack is able to pull end of the split rim inside the opposite end so that the tire can be removed.  When the lever is engaged, the rim is locked in position by a pin that holds the two ends of the rim together.  The picture will probably be more helpful than my explanation.

Hello Hursst.  The wheel rim wrench is also referred to as a rim jack.  Go back to pg. 21 (I think) of the General Discussion section; look for subject "tool kits" started by 1930 with the last post date of July 30, 2010.  There are a couple pages of discussion.  I posted the instructions for an Acme Rim Jack and a picture of mine while I was removing a rim from the wheel.  If you have trouble or need more info, let me know.  I will keep checking here.  Kim Mc

Hey Chet.  I took a little time to day to do some measurements and diagrams to help you with your project.  Although I have a '29 coupe and you a sedan, I expect there are many similarities in the top wood structure from the windshield back as far as the B post.  So that's what I detailed.  The back of the front wood piece is fixed to the flat steel plate above the windshield.  The length of that piece falls short of the outside edge of the A post by about 5/8 inch on each end.  The out side edge of the side wood piece is curved to follow the curve of the top of the door; the inside edge of this piece is straight from the A post to the B post (maybe the pictures will help show this).  I traced the actual curve of the pieces in some places and noted those on the diagram; otherwise, much of the diagram is not to scale.  Hope it all makes sense once you look at the diagram and pics.  If not, send me a note.  Good luck with your project. I get lots of help from the Forum too, so maybe this stuff will be useful to others.  mc

Old Man:  Your moniker should be 'Mr. Encyclopedia'...thanks for this info.  I will check Mac's catalogue...I need the end pieces...I expect they will have the top material too?  Anyhow, thanks for sharing all that Plymo info stuffed into your noodle...     mc

Chet:  Here's the rain gutter stuff you asked for.  My car is a coupe and yours a sedan so there may be some differenches that you can resolve.  The gutter is 37 inches long and has a 7/8" arc in order to follow the roof line above the door.  There are holes along its length; 1/4" from each end for a screw, then a tack hole 1 1/4" from each end, then another 2 1/4" from each end, then the holes continue at 2" spacing.  Pictures are attached.  Hope this helps.  From Crazy Dave's sedan pics it looks like the rain gutter turns down at the back end.  Good luck with your project.
