Re: treating top wood

Hi nreed. I've read some where that the top wood was painted but I've never seen a photo in any magazine or on the web where the wood was painted. I plan to paint my wood black. Recently I've spoke to people who know wood. They tell me that hard wood like the oak in the top wood has a tight grain an...

29 AA front bumper

Did all the 29 AA cc trucks leave the factory with chrome front bumpers, or did some have painted bumpers? If there were painted bumpers, what color were they?

door window felt metal retainers

I'm trying to restore a 29 AA cc. I'm working on the doors. I ordered a felt channel kit from Mikes. Was there a curved channel at the top of the door, held on by 3 screws that held the upper foam rubber?

Re: Door seal

Hi, I'm restoring a 29 AA and I couldn't find much information on the door seals in catalogs. The only info I did find is in a Berts catalog, part #A-48190, the rubber strip is stapled to the inside of the upholstered door panel. You can go to Berts on line at modelastore.com carry on and keep up th...

Re: Door hinges

Hi, today I took the doors off my 29 AA, I completely dismantled the doors and I just read your post and looked at the hinges. They look the same from left to right. I looked in a catalog and they are very expensive for a set, so take care of them.
