Resistor installation

I want to start my 36 but want to temporarily put a resistor in between the coil and the ignition. Does the resistor have to be grounded or can I temporarily use plastic ties to hold it in place....

Re: 35-36 ford cabriolet door length??

The 36 Cabriolets had a passenger side door lock and roll up windows
The 36 Roadsters did not have door locks and roll up windows. No need
For locks if you had no windows.

Re: 35-36 ford cabriolet door length??

I’m not an expert but I never heard of a 1936 Passenger door not having
Holes for the handle and lock. I’m thinking that the holes were filed (shaved off).
Maybe after market? I’d like to know also.

Re: 1936 cabriolet

The club cabriolet had a mid year change. The Benton Grey dash changed to wood grain around April 1936.
The interior handles changed from Benton Grey to Brown at the same time.
1935 and 36 gauges...

Re: Fix it or leave it

If you can do the repairs yourself I would fix the fenders with replacement patches from a company called EMS and find a replacement trans cover here on the forum. As far as the interior goes that’s...

Re: Glove Box Spring Question

The only thing I can think of is attach it to the small tab as if it were the larger
metal hinge. The problem you might have is attaching the hinge to the glove box with the spring in the way. Try...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

I replaced the pan on my 36 Club Cabriolet.
I’ll see if I can get some pics for you.
It’s covered up and tucked away but I may be able to squeeze
In between other projects to get to it.

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

When I installed my inner panel I cut it after the notch where that piece of wood is inserted. I’m not sure what the wood was actually used for. Maybe to finish off the trunk area? The cut was made...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Yes your right about the extra metal to weld in.

Make the holes just a little larger will save you later when you line them up...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Just thinking, you may have to take the inner pan out section at a time to reach certain welds. I’m not sure it’s been a while.
