I have started disassembling my 1922 coupe. I removed the rear fenders and the side steps. I am having problems figuring out how the trunk is removed. Does anyone here know how it is mounted to the cab? It loosened up when I removed the rear fender mounts but it is rock solid under the cab. How is it attached to the cab? it is far from obvious. The car is in my profile photo.
Thanks for any help
The '22 Coupes turtle deck is manufactured as part of the frame work. You will need to remove the sheet metal first and then disassemble the wood in pieces.
Is sheet metal available for replacement or are my fabrication skills going to be tested?
Fabrication skills will be tested. Some sheet metal is available and some fenders are too. Check out the vendors like Rootlieb who make some sheet metal parts. I can send some additional photos to you if you want me to.
The floor pan I fabricated as well as all the rear turtle deck top and back panels the sides of the turtle deck were patched by welding in panels.
The doors had panels welded in too.
All the photos you can send will be greatly appreciated. I thought I was going to take off the trunk and cab and clean up and paint the chassis but this is a horse of a different color.
You can send them to my email if you wish firstname.lastname@example.org or you can post them here. any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm sure I will be able to do this with some advice.
