Prep for Paint - Continued.

Finally making incremental progress.  All the fenders are completed.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

( Mr. T. )  I pity the fool who thinks it's an ashtray. 

I guess Henry Ford had the patent on the cowl tank.

It is a touring car, (open air) as long as you put your smoke out first... :o

Wonder of any went up in flames as a result of that awesome design?

I wonder what engineer thought pouring gasoline inside the passenger compartment was a brilliant idea ??

Shared this with a co-worker, he found the answer.

"An interesting feature not usually found on passenger cars of that era, or any era, is the fuel filler pipe protruding from the dashboard into the passenger compartment. That is the pipe through which gasoline is poured into the 15-gallon tank. Gas is fed to the engine via a one-barrel Rayfield carburetor"

Rich,
   Sent you an email with a photo, not sure if you got it.  Also, I believe my switch parts to be from 1930, so not sure if these will work fully with your '29, but the coil looks exactly the same from what I can tell.

Here's one maybe . https://www.ebay.com/itm/1929-DeSoto-Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth-Vintage-Ignition-Coil-Switch-Delco-Remy/223468539708

The 29 is oval shaped. It wonít fit the Dash hole in the 29.   Iím not sure what car it does fit.

Chris- Thanks for the reply on the coil switch assembly. Please let me know details if you come up with the switch.  The coil you have does not have to be good as I am trying to see if a coil I have is good and need a switch for it as it does not have one. Rich
