Just got the TT loaded and this showed up. No big project just some cosmetic and some minor mechanicals.

You're a beneficiary (or a victim?) of your good reputation, Don! :-O

All kidding aside, you are a great craftsman, as well as a good human being. (Not enough of those left these days.)

Thanks Wayne, its just so hard to say no. Its a word I will soon have to use tho. This will be a weeks worth of minor things so it won't be a big boring duplication of the Fordor projects. Thank goodie..

Might just be the way the picture is, but if the hood is latched down and that much cowl lacing is exposed, it might have a bent frame.

The hood isn't latched down. I had it open to check things out. It seems to fit correctly when latched.

Ok did a 1925 Tudor not have a swing down support for the rear of the front passenger seat? I guess I'm thinking of the '22 Centerdoor that has a support...

Don, I know the 1926/27 has a couple of cone supports that are attached at the rear of the seat base. The 26/27 uses a tall cone, and I think the older cars used a shorter one. They attach with three wood screws through the seat bottom to the wood frame. This is one of the tall cones.

Thanks John I'm thinking something is missing here. The 26 Tudor I did a few years ago had the same cones as in your picture. This had to have some kind of rear support...

I have a 25 tudor. No support of any sort for the rear of the passenger seat.

Wow, Jim really? I sat in the seat yesterday while the owner drove and it did seem good and sturdy. So once again I learn something...now to retain it~ Thanks Mr. Sims!!

Gary, thanks for putting up with my cyber life. As you can tell the barn is a lonely place at times... :-(

Hello Don,
40 Years ago I restored a 1925 Tudor and have had several of them since. Currently restoring a 24 Tudor for some folks out east. None of them had a front passenger seat support under the back.The heavy cast front legs seem to provide the needed stability. Another interesting thing about the passenger seat is it sits at a slight angle,(not square with the drivers seat)
I think the idea behind that was to provide a little more room for people climbing in to the back.

Hi Larry, yup I'm learning something on each one of these ole lizzies I get. And you are right, I looked at the seats mounting gear and it is much heavier than the '22 Centerdoor's and the '26 Tudor I had. It's just funny that the designs varied like that but, I suppose they were experimenting as they went. Thanks for the information. I'm sure I will have more questions on this puppy~
