Rewooding instructions needed please.

Is there any information on rewooding a 21 model T touring? I don’t need to redo all the wood but some of it is either rotten, bent, broken or missing. I have a nice table saw and a bandsaw, and belt sander but no installation instructions. Thank you. Frank

Re: New guy here

Dave, you have received a lot of excellent advice but the best would be to contact one of the club members in your area and have them look over the car with you. The car looks like it has stood out in the rain and snow for many years so shake the body and doors well in case the small amount of wood ...

Re: hand brake lever hitting oil pan

Is your handbrake cross shaft bolted with the ears on each side to the underside of the frame or topside of the u shape bottom part. Since the holes line up it has been a common mistake. Just a thought. Frank
