Hi all!

I know this topic has been touched on several times over the years, but I have a few questions on Rewooding a '25 Roadster body.

I am putting together another "gowjob" '25 RPU / Shop Truck for my Wife.

I have all the Sheet metal and most of the goodies to go with them and I have the plans for those bodies, but the woodwork will be new horizons for me.

What I don't know is, how much wood do I need? How many board feet and how thick?

I don't want to buy a bunch of stuff I cut and not beable to use it....or get too little material.

Here is what we are shooting for...

Clayton,
I bought all (I hope all) the wood I'll need for Barney, but it was a while ago, and I don't remember how I decided what to buy. Unfortunately the wood is stacked in a garage I can't get to right now (fallen tree) to tell you just what I bought. Sorry! I was hoping this thread was about someone doing their wood & was going to steal some ideas!

Leon Parker has wood plans, I'd guess it's easy to estimate the needed amount and sizes from them?

I bought a body wood kit from Lang's to do my '25
roadster pick up. All the old wood was still there but in very bad condition. I replaced one or two pieces at a time seeing how they fit from the old stuff. Take your time, take pictures or do sketches. The tack rail at the top of the body took the most time.

I have a material list for the body and one for the wood pickup box.

Clayton-

I have the wood plans you need.
Will you be at the HCCA meeting next week?
When I did my 1919 I used ash.

The '25 bodies are considerably different than the '24s. They called them the wide cowl body.
