Hello. I am in the process of trying to determine how the driver and passenger removable fore doors attach to the body and dash of my 1912 touring. The car has a smooth side body.
Can someone please post pictures of how they were mounted?
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
Mike -- You tie them on with patriotic bunting.
If you have the doors there will be a bracket to the dash a screw mid way down and a bracket to the floor at the door post this is our 1912 Canadian Model t four doors this body was never apart
Here a couple of photos from an original 1912 Canadian body showing the top and bottom brackets.
Colin and David,
Thank you for the pictures. They are very helpful. It looks like I have the large bracket pictured in David's post, but none of the other brackets. From the pictures you posted, the remaining brackets would have been small and perhaps easier to fabricate. Again, thanks for photos.
The upholstery should cover all but the end of the bracket. Here's a nice original '12 touring for reference:
1912 Foredoor mounting hardware
Thank you Royce and Phil. Phil, your photos helped a lot. I had the long bracket that goes on the passenger door in my spare parts box, but did not know what it was for. Based on the photos, i am missing only one bracket to mount the doors. Again, thanks!
I sent you a PM
Phils foredoor mounting hardware photos are great. Looks like I`ve got everything neccessary--just don`t want to install them.(maybe a future owner will?) I like the "open" front look and accessability. Thanks, Paul
I am missing the "nob" on the door latch, can some one tell me the size and shape? If I make one may as well make it correct as possible.
