Thanks. Yes. It pretty much gets wedged in. I am looking to see how to complete the bottom edge. Where it meets the running board trim. Not sure if cut straight across? Tuck it under?

My full running board rubber itself needs to be glued back down as it became unglued from the previous owner, but it looks as the corner/edge of mine was tucked beneath.

Also from what I see. That gap between the door window and vent window is quite significant as you can see compared to my pictures as well. If your side window is rubbing inside that felt channel then you may need to sand that window down some, unless you need to push it into the frame rubber so it bottoms out.

I'm having the same problem on my passenger side. The driver side fits nicely. What I did on the driver side which helped and what I attempted to do on the passenger side which did help some but not enough, unfortunately, Was I moved the whole vent window forward towards the windshield pillars just enough to not scrape at the top and drilled new mounting holes in the door where it screws down. This allowed me to be able to position the side window closer towards the front of the car. As you can see in the pictures. It's as close as you can get to the vent window as well. The very top of the vent window frame in relation to where the stainless strip that screws onto the windshield pillar that holds the weatherstrip has a tight gap. There is originally a small indent in the stainless strip up top which allowed the vent frame to not scrape. I also hammered that indent down just a bit to avoid the scraping and being able to get that gap close. This allowed me to move the position of the side window closer towards the front, which I was hoping would create enough space so that piece that screws onto the wooden piece that goes on the convertible rack, and not scrape the side window frame. It worked on the driver's side but not enough on the passenger. I unfortunately had the top material installed before I mocked everything up to for test windows and the such, so I couldn't adjust the rack much. I may end up sanding the wooden piece down ever so slightly so that metal piece that holds the weatherstrip will sit slightly further back. I just need about 1/8". I hope I explained it clearly. If not I'm a phone call away, just DM me of you want to give me a call and I'll pass along my number.

Does anyone happen to know the convertible top patterns for a 1931 Packard 833 Roadster coupe? Or know a place that can make the top + bows?
Thanks!


This is where I got my top from and had a good experience.

Thanks for that picture, that helps me know the correct style plate looks like. The ones that Will has for sell are for sedans (body mount), not a coupe (fender mount).


You're welcome. With your skills, you should easily be able to fabricate one.

Should be the same, but here's a passenger side shot.

Does anyone have a picture of what the tail light reenforcement plates look like under the fender? Since my fenders are off a sedan, they are missing, and the prior custom fenders didn't have them either. I just need to get an idea of the general shape and construction so I can fabricate something functional.


Mine are different than Will's. I own a 120-C

Can someone with '37 115/120 Convertible or Coupe give me the measurement of the from the back bottom edge of the fender to bottom back edge of the tail light base, along the fender peak?

The replacement fenders I got are from a sedan and do not have the hole drilled. I can't just the measurements from my old fenders since they were altered.

Kevin,

I used a sewing tape to better sit against the slight curvature of the fender and I did confirm with my Stanley FatMax that the measurements aligned. I'm getting about 12" from bottom of the fender peak to the bottom of the rear light.

Glue for what?

If your referring to the running boards, I haven't replaced the rubber yet. The drivers side is original and the passenger side is just painted metal.

But I bought weld-bond to glue the replacement rubber down when I am ready.


Ah gotcha! My eyes must be getting bad. I thought you had installed the rubber on the running board.
