1922 Center Door (once again)

Post by Will_Vanderburg » Fri Sep 06, 2019 4:27 pm

I know these are important and I hope I can find the other one, because I don’t want to have to make it.

They have separated from their parent wooden pieces. These are supposed to be the bottom of the door pillars on either side of the rocker panels to form the bottom door opening.

As far as I can tell, the one with more meat (that I fixed),is a rear and the skinnier ones are fronts.

The holes in the original rockers line up with the holes in these. In fact, the hole to attach the one I fixed would be located directly in the splice line (where new meets old)

I found the fourth one, so now I can start rebuilding these.

I'm working on a pillar right now that will attach to the rear seat box.

This is a rear passenger side pillar on the 1922 Center Door. The tenon on top of the pillar had rotted off, so I cut into solid wood, epoxied it, and then glued a new tenon on. The tenon fits into a mortise on the roof rail.

I just need to confirm with the opposite side tomorrow exactly how tall the tenon is supposed to be, its exact shape and size, and whether or not there is a mortise on the side for a tenon pin to go into as there is on the opposite end of the header or if it's just pocket holed. The window header on the rear side windows has a tenon between two pocket holes where it attaches to the door latch pillars.

I'm probably gonna have to buy a pocket hole jig.
