Re: Dash mounted flower vase

This is the vase bracket that Reen made for my '28 roadster. He is a talented man and always willing to assist those of us with limited skills.

Re: Kick panel with document storage

I had pockets put in the door panels because my roadster came with the accessory cowl vents.

What are these straps

These straps have been floating around in my boxes of A parts for years. Does anyone have any idea what they are and what they are supposed to be for?

Condensers

Is there a way to test condensers? I got these recently, but don't know if they're any good. Thanks for the insight.

Re: Vicky Question

The Victoria came with two styles of front seats. The early style, from introduction to about May Ď31 were, I believe, the same as the phaeton.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Brad, thanks for posting the close-up pictures!
Interesting that none of the snaps along the top of the seat back are fastened to anything. I though it was just me.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Werner, I think the snaps are to attach at the top rail behind the seat, but I'm not certain. There are no snap fasteners behind the seat top on my roadster.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Werner, here are some photos of the top boot for my '28 roadster. I don't know if it is correct per the Judging Standards, but it came with the top. I hardly ever put it on, it's kind of a PITA. If...

Early Ď28 hand brakes

Working on my roadster, I noticed the cut out in the left side frame rail.

Re: Back flushing

I put together the same system that Tom suggested with a trip to Home Depotís plumbing department, all PVC pipe. You can probably do that as well.
