Hello Again

More pictures of the repairs to the leaf springs.

Picture 0080 Shows reaming the spring to size for the new bushing

Picture 0081 Shows the reamed hole in the spring

Picture 0082 Shows pressing the new bushings in

Picture 0084 shows the new bushings installed.

I made the new bushings from oil impregnated Bronze to help with wear.

With close examination you can see the eyes were forge welded to the spring leafs on this car.

Don't want to derail the post, but the T slot covers are a great looking idea. Must search around and see what can be found for such application.

Hi Guys

I bought the T slot covers years ago from MSC. I don't think they have them any longer.

Not really my type of car but its beautiful. Going to be a museum piece when done. Im more along the muscle car era. Cuda, challenger, road runner, etc. but still a nice piece.

Hello Everyone
I hope you've had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends.

In today's post I'll be sharing pictures of the new frame and the new body that we needed to build for this car. Many thanks for this portion of the restoration needs to go to Joe Wulfken, Long Island, New York for the loan of the original body parts that he saved when he restored his car and also to Oliver Ray Redding, Ct. for building the new frame and body. Oliver is probably the best in the field for building authentic wood car body's and frames. His work is displayed in many collections around the world.

As I mentioned in an earlier post this car was restored in the 1960's and many of the methods employed at that time were not up to today's standards and also after talking to the fellow that built the body back then, all he had to go by were pictures. He had no idea if or where another one of these cars had survived. IHC only built 418 of these cars with the major portion of production built in 1910 and 21 built in 1911. Numbering started at 401, my car is 766.

Picture 0012 Shows the new White Ash frame

Picture 0014 Shows fitting the engine for the 1st time

Picture 0018 Shows the original Firewall and Floorboards that
were loaned from Joe

Picture 0021 Shows another view with the transmission in place.

I was curios about that, but even more so to trim work. Was it steam bent?
