I didn't want to, But I had to pull off the top To replace the welding at the base, which was quite worn.When I went to pull out the staples some of the wood lifted off the body at the back of a car.How does one go about tightening the wood back to the body? Also, What type of wood is used? Looking at a YouTube video of an earlier car, I would think that it would be alder. Can anyone please confirm this? Thank you.
Jim, last one I did, not correct but I took rear upholstery out and ran screws from the bottom up. Problem solved provided the wood is still solid.KGB
There are some fantastic marine products that could be used depending on the condition of the wood. It is possible to repair the wood to better than new strength without replacing it. I'm not going to get in to details because some of the forum members can get rather nasty and I don't need the grief. You can PM me and I will walk you through some options. I've repaired wood boats my entire life and know what works and what doesn't.
