need 28 model A interior help

Time to work on the interior. Do not have all the garnish moldings and can't find them. What have you done? Pictures? Especially confused about how to trim the rear and side windows.

Check with Snyders...I think they have the garnish mouldings. www.snydersantiqueauto.com

Hi Henry, was hoping you'd jump in. I checked every source imaginable. Quarter window trim is available, but not the long side window trim for the Tudors. Hoping someone who fabricated around this missing trim would jump in with pics.

What about ordering the shorter trim...plus order a extra one...cut the trim you are going to use and graft in a piece cut off of the extra one to get the length you need.

Clever Idea Henry, hadn't thought of that. But the Quarter window and the side window are completely different shapes, plus the replacements are fiberglass. I Have the rear window trim in fiberglass, and haven't figured out how to successfully chop it 4 inches either.

When I chopped my top ...I had to chop and piece back all my window frames and garnish mouldings. My garnish was the original metal ones...very thin, but I did mig weld on then ok...I smoothed them up with a grinder and used a little dyna-glass for filler.. I wish they had of been fiberglass...it would have been a lot easier.

By the way...I just looked in my Snyders catalog and they show those mouldings both ways...steel or fiberglass. Here are the part numbers for the tudoor. steel ones...A-342-A ( front....A-442-ABR (rear) They are sold by the pair. The rear glass garnish in steel is A-47096-A

re: need 28 model A interior help

What's the secret to splicing a fiberglass chop back together?

Get a small fiberglass repair kit at NAPA...cut your garnish...bevel the cut a little with some sand paper and follow the directions in the repair kit. You can use the fiberglass cloth on the back side for strength...you won't see it back there. When cured and dry...just sand smooth, prime and paint.

Henry, I think those numbers are for the bottom (or sill, where you would rest your arm) of the front and rear doors. The pieces I need are an open loop. top and both sides, but the front has a 90* corner and the back is a curve. Don't think I can fabricate it.

re: need 28 model A interior help

Been checking Mac's, Sacremento Vintage Ford, and Snyder's regularly. They seem to be the big 3. Other sites had less than they did. There is one side up on ebay now, but it's the first I've seen in 2 years of watching and I hate to pay a fortune and never get the other side. Be better off fabricating both sides, but I need ideas.
Maybe a thick wooden frame around the window (1 1/2 - 2 inches) to tack the fabric to, and then cover the tacks with a strip of polished aluminum trim, if I can find something appropriate, and roll it in the break to fit the contour?

Once you get to this point, you don't need to paint the garnish molding, you can cover it with fabric. The easiest thing to use is a stretchy material like vinyl, leather or Ultraleather. These two trim rings are off a 47 Ford coupe. They have vinyl glued to the metal frames with DAP Weldwood Landau Top and Trim Adhesive (spray grade). This would work on fiberglass also.
