Re: disassembly

I have dissassembled a Briggs Fordor, you may find pictures on www.fordmodela.com. Should be very similar, I think.
Good luck, Michael

Re: Model A Fordor?

Replacing the wood is a very rewarding job, but does take its time. My brother is a cabinet maker and was of great help. See www.fordmodela.com
