Does anyone know what size wood is used for the windows of the 1927 Coupe? From the pictures that I have seen, they seem to be 1/2" thick but I am not too sure. I would rather make my own window frames than spend the money on something that I know that I can make my self.
Thanks for the diagram, Lorenzo. But I need to know the size of the wood for the windows.
Dave, here in Australia we use glass in the windows. It lets us see out very well!!!!
Allan from down under.
The wood pieces are simple. When you have the car apart, just look at what you have got, make a few measurements and whittle them out.
Ted, I don't have any wood on my windows. ....Allan, that was too funny. My mom said the same thing. I just looked at her and grunted. Thanks for making me laugh.
What is the thickness of the wood?
dave on the 26 coupe there are some all metal ex. the rear window there are 2 types of coupes 26 here are pic.s of both if you have metal around window they get no wood ex. rear that I can measure
Yes, mine needs wood. What size is the wood?
The wood that was in mine had to be the original wood. It was so rotted that it fell apart at the touch. No way that I could measure it.
Lorenzo,actually, looking at your photos, I can see that the wood seem to be as thick as the nail strips. Am I right or are they a bit thicker? Great pictures and loaded with information for me. Thank you.
Very cool, Lorenzo....Thanks a million.
The original, rotten rear window wood from my 26 coupe is 1-1/4 inch square stock. The vertical pieces are 19-5/8", the horizontal ones 28-1/8" long. The wood frames the window opening as shown in Lorenzo's top photo. I noticed the inside corner of the interior rear wood window frame has a rabbit groove, about 1/8" X1/8" to facilitate starting the window molding screws. Those wood screws enter the wood at the corner of the wood at a 45 degree angle, at least the originals seemed to.
Best of luck on your project, jb
Thank you, James. This exactly what I was looking for. Now I cam get to work...THANK YOU!
