General Discussion / Re: are these 29 fenders

papajimmm:  Thanks for the pictures of the rear fenders.  I appreciate the time you took to take the pictures and post them.  I'll stick with the ones I have as they are in better shape but thanks again anyhow.  Kimmc

Don't know the answer but do you have any '29 Plymouth coupe rear fenders?  Thanks.  Kim

General Discussion / great source for early Plymouth information
« on: January 22, 2019, 07:41:31 PM »
I recently revisited Tod Fitch's web-site that is a gold mine of valuable information about vintage Plymouths.  While exploring the site I discovered model specification information that I had previously overlooked.  I thought it would be worthwhile to pass this along on the forum as there are frequent questions posted about various mechanical tolerances and standards of adjustment.  I am going to describe step by step instructions to retrieve the great work Tod has done to consolidate all these details for us.  If you are already aware of this you can skip the remainder of this post.

First, go to
Home page will appear with Home, Model Info, Repair, Parts, etc; click on Model Info
On Model Info page there will be a line with Intro, Q, U, 30-U, PA, PB, etc; click on your Plymouth model (I am using U as an example)
After clicking on the model you choose, U in my case, that page will come up (1929 Plymouth in my case)
On the year model Plymouth page, (Engineering Code xx), there's a list Highlights & commentary, Production & Serial Nos, Specifications, etc
Click on Specifications; there beneath a brief table a line states Detailed Specifications & Standards of Adjustment are on another page
Click on Detailed Specifications & Standards of Adjustment; a multi-page table will show the many specifications for your selected model

Hope these directions are clear.  Try it, you'll like it.  And Thank you Tod Fitch.

If you have extra etched steel or printed versions made of this I know someone who would buy one.  Just sayin'....  :)

Yes, Frank, thank for your reply. I now think these may not belong to the coupe at all.  I've done several other projects over the past few years (a '59 TBird, a '66 Nova, and currently a '67 Mustang).  I think maybe I put these parts on the wrong shelf and got them mixed up with the '29 Plymouth parts.  Maybe the Mustang; they kinda look like later manufacture than '29. This is embarrassing... :P

While gathering parts to go for powder coating I came across these 2 pieces that I failed to label.  I can remember what they are or where they go.  I am feeling pretty stupid to have to ask but this is driving me nuts.  There are captured nuts on the side arms which had large rubber washers on the back side (for vibration?).  I don't know how thick the washers were either.  Thanks for the help.  mc

Things you are looking for. / Bumper plates, again

I am still looking to buy 2 "bumper plates" (picture attached).  Bent, cracked, or even broken parts are acceptable.  The face on the ones I have is flat, not slightly curved like one I bought off the internet.  Thanks for your help.  Kim Mc

General Discussion / Re: 1929 Weatherstrip - Questions
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:30:11 PM »
Hi Chet.  I have some pictures attached of my '29 coupe that may help you.  One picture shows the P-side door frame with windlass-type seal along the inside edge of the door opening.  This picture also shows the 4-piece garnish molding around the rear window.  Also note above the upper left corner of the rear window (L in picture) one of the two hangers for the roll-down type rear window shade.  I do not remember that there was any weatherstrip anywhere in the door jambs or door frame but I could be wrong about that.  The pictures don't show any evidence that a rubber seal was ever there however.  If I find a picture that clearly shows the hinge post and open door, I will send it along.  Kim

General Discussion / Re: plating on different parts...
« on: April 13, 2018, 05:53:12 PM »
Those parts on my car were once black as were the "retainer plates" on the front of the upper and lower chrome bars that hold those two bars in place.  Except for the chrome bars, I plan to have all of these parts powder coated black.  Has anyone else done this?

General Discussion / plating on different parts...
« on: April 12, 2018, 02:07:38 AM »
On the early Plymouths, like my '29, there seem to have been different plating coatings used on different parts.  I could use some help with this.

steel wheel rims:  cadmium   Did anything else receive cadmium plating?
bumpers:  chrome or nickel?  I've seen lots of chrome but an old timer told me they were nickel originally.  What is the consensus?
headlights and radiator cowl:  chrome?  My headlights are original (I believe) and chrome.  Same for radiator cowl?
door handles and window cranks:  nickel 

Did I leave anything out?  Thanks for the help.  Kim

Hey Chet.  Thanks for taking the time to do this.  I think I can manage the fabrication from your very complete drawing.  Best, Kim Mc

Not a problem Chet.  I am in no hurry.  I have projects that need doing in my shop to last a second life-time.  I need to find someone here that can do my engine.  The "big name" shop wanted $5K to start!!  Won't be going there.  Have a very good holiday season.  And thanks.  Kim Mc
