Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Treating wood frame
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Jeff Brookmyer on Friday, January 19, 2018 - 07:12 pm:

Hello all. I'm building a new wood frame for my 22'roadster. Using white Ash wood.

What, if anything, should I cost or finish the wood in to protect it from mold, rot, etc.?

Looking for suggestions!

Coat... Not cost. Sorry for the typo!

Woodlife Classic is one good one. I used it some 45 years ago on my 21 touring re-wood project and the wood still looks like new. Rustoleum owns the company now.

Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer is what I used on a recent project.

Jeff,
I also need to do a 22 Roadster. Where did you get the ash? I can not find any ash in my area,
Dan

I found my wood at a local place less than an hour from my house. They have tons of different types of wood. The family that owns they place has some model T's so I figured they knew what I needed....

Armstrong Millworks. www.armstrongmillworks.com

I don't know if they ship but worth asking.
My wood is absolutely beautiful.
