Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

OK. Now I get it. Extra long shanks on lug nuts. That would work. Thank you for explaining.

The two tooth Gemmer steering sector was used interchangeably from Feb. 1929 along with the 7 tooth sector to the end of 1929. It was 1 inch shorter than the 30-31 steering column. For 1929, the...

Re: Most Difficult Restoration Tasks

Door alignment for me as well. I spent a good month aligning the 4 doors on our 28 Phaeton. The right front eluded me. I had to settle for simply latching securely.

Re: Reproduction Shock Absorbers

I misspoke. The shocks I was referring to were also made by Pete of Chicago. Not Rick. He was also known as "Pete the Vendor". Sorry for confusion.

Re: Pickup Fenders????

The most obvious difference is at where the rear fender attaches to the running board apron. The 28-29 cut out for the apron is shallow compared to the 30-31 fenders.
