1929 Model A Sport Coupe Door Trim Improvements


The Coupe was missing most of the door furniture and the trims are not really correct

The door cappings and trims were removed and inspected

3 / 9

The trims were cut to allow the door lock escutcheons to be fitted, as the door trims are incorrect repairs had to be carried out to allow the fitting of the door furniture

At this time the holes to allow the fitting of the footmans loop checkstraps were also created. The trims were then fitted to the car. The window winder handle locking pin holes had to be reworked as they were too small for the pins to be fitted. Some slight adjustments were made to allow smooth operation of the windows. Otherwise all is well.

Once we had removed the door trims it was very interesting to find the details from the trim manufacturer from 20 years ago! I may research the detail to see if I can get a bead on who owned the car back then. I’ve tried writing to the owner listed on the title but sadly got no reply.

It was great to drive home with slightly less rattles thanks to John!
