Interior wood

I just received the interior wood kit for my '31 Ford Roadster. There are no pictures or instructions included. Had to order the screw installation kit from another vendor as none came with the wood. It should arrive Friday.

Here's my concern. There is no existing old wood in the body and I don't know where all the pieces go or attach. There are many aftermarket publications available, but rather than buy them all, which one(s) have the best info or pictures as to the location and installing of the wood?

I also need to know how the original seat springs were held in place? I don't see any clips or brackets listed to hold them in place in any aftermarket catalog.

If any of you have photos showing the wood installed please post them here or email to me. Ireland's Child has a great finished '31 Ford Roadster but apparently has not posted any pictures of it during construction. I am unable to find any. Perhaps he will see this and send/post some.

Thanks to all.

Interior doors are made using glue that probably isn't waterproof. The door would fall apart when exposed to the elements. Normally interior doors are a lot thinner too. Your good exterior door will be heavy, solid and built to take the cold and heat. That's why it is more expensive.

You are confused. You refer to house doors. Thanks for your effort though.

I am asking about the wood used as seat support and tack strips in a 1931 Ford Model A Roadster.

UPDATE:

I have sort of figured out where some of the wood will go. I'm still not sure exactly how the seat back wood goes or how the seat springs attach. I'm also puzzled about the three tack strip pieces that go along the top rear and some of the sides of the passenger area of the body. I think they are the tack strips for the top. What puzzles me about them is at the present time there is a one piece metal square tube attached in that location. Appears to be an original piece. I think I have to remove it and replace it with the three pieces of wood. I discovered that I also needed two sheet metal pieces that attach to the rear seat upright wood and the body. One is called a package tray and the other is called a seat adjuster (although as best I know the seat is not adjustable). I got them ordered yesterday evening. So far I've received the interior wood kit (ordered from one vendor and shipped from the manufacturer), the seat bottom springs and seat back springs (also ordered from one vendor and shipped from another). The wood assembly screw kit is on its way from another vendor (the only one I found that carries this as a kit) and is scheduled to arrive Friday. The sheet metal pieces are available from several vendors and I found them from a vendor very close to me (120 miles) at the best price. I figure they are made from one manufacturer and then sold thru various vendors at whatever price they choose. Pays to shop around some.

Maha22 is just spammer, he's been in every section advertising his website and posting crap so it doesn't look so noticable. Needs to be booted.
