1929 Model A Ford Sport Coupe Rumble Seat Clearance Fix

When my trunk/boot/rumble seat lid is open it leans on the spare wheel, which in turn is leading to some marking of the paint. It’s been an issue that has been hanging around for quite a while after being kindly pointed out to me by John Cochran who also provided the kit of brackets to remedy the issue.

When we started to investigate the fitting of the afore mentioned kit it was clear that all was not standard, (nothing new on this vehicle), and that a bar had been fitted across the rear of the compartment right where we would need to fit the brackets. The bar in fact worked to our advantage and we were able to secure the bump rubbers from the kit to achieve the same effect as fitting the brackets!
