hows it going hotrodders ive got an a model coupe 29 model which ive built over th last 24 months an instead of having a normal bootlid i am having a rumble seat [dickie seat] the car is now rolling and im going as a highboy on an original a chassis i have purchased the hinges required to mount the bootlid i have them on the boot now but cant seem to work out how they mount on the body let alone swing into a seating position an then close .
the insides of my rod in the boot on the left and right have been completly gutted by the previous owner i think what im trying to say does anyone of you fellow rodders have any photos of the inside of the boot on a model where these hinges mount to the body if these could be emailed this might just help me. cheers

The model A had a very wide (about six inches) piece of 1/16" or so sheet metal piece that ran from the trunk gutter down to the floor right at the rear bottom of the gutter in front of the lower rear body panel.

The rumble seat lid (same as the deck with hinges mounted on it in a different place) had large V shaped cast iron hinges that go down along these flat pieces of sheet metal I mentioned. There is simply a bolt that goes thru the hinge into a fixed nut in the sheet metal piece.

I don't have a photo but thought that may get you started. It is so strange that I figure, you may have these sheet metal pieces there and just didn't realize it.

brookville roadster reproduces all of the parts you need in steel. They have the uprights that martinsr mentioned as well as the rear panel and floor. all of the other hardware is readily available. You will need upper and lower stops, and a latch, if you didn't get these with the hinge kit. Go here:
http://www.brookville-roadster.com/rod/index.html
look for "model A sheetmetal parts" When that page opens up scroll down to "1928-31 Model A Rumble Seat & Trunk Compartment Inner Panels". There are some pics of the parts there. I might have a exploded pic of the sheetmetal as assembled in the book at the shop. If I do I'll post it here later. BTW welcome to HRB. Hope this helps, mikey
