The original front 6-120 bows had a grove over the front windshield top bar for a weather strip piece

I am surprised no one knew that coil was used on 30's to forties Chrysler products. Just push the stripped wire through the screw in part and fold about 1/8 inch of the wire end over or ask any 30's Chrysler guy how to do it.

Anytime a brake hose is screwed into a wheel cylinder or caliper you must use a copper sealing washer.

For 1936 120B there were Five colors that used metallic.
Duco 202-31473 Gunmetal Light Metallic Color Scheme A
202-31474 Almond Green Metallic " " J
202-31475 Golden Tan Metallic " " P
202-31476 Trianon Green Metallic " " Q
202-31482 Tuscan Red Metallic " " Z

Hope this helps you out.
I think Metallics were used in the 20,s as well. Most Packard colors were very conservative or subdued ,not flashy unless special ordered . The scheme letters referred to the pin stripe color and wheel color.

If I remember right,Chevrolet&Pontiac in the approximate years used the same part in their distributors. Try Chevrolet parts dealers who have parts for 30's cars.

If you can give the pin a solid rap from below to move it a 1/4 inch,it will move out easily as the top of the pin has about a 1/4 inch of serrations on it to make it hold fast.

These cover the opening behind the seat,so you never see in behind the seat back,if you move the seat back and forth.
They were upholstered in imitation leather the same color as the seat color. They had a leather or imitation leather also at the seat top between it and the back shelf to prevent things from rolling down behind the seat, no matter what the seat adjustment was(all way front or back). The front seat was exactly the same as the 4 door sedan seat,except for the robe rail at the back that you can't see because side covers you asked about.

The spacer has to be threaded which is what holds your steering wheel on tight. The nut is threaded to the adapter, only to hold the horn pocket plate, down on the steering wheel.
