    Convertible top frame colour scheme

    Thank you very much. That is rather helpful indeed. Thom
  2. Hi, I did poste this question already in another thread that I have highjacked. Sorry for that. "Just wondering, does anybody know what the original colour definition was for the convertible top frame itself for a 1949 Plymouth?". My manual does not give me any hints regarding this subject matter. thanks/ Thom

    P15 / P14 Folding Top Operation

    By the way. Does anyone know what the original colour was for the frame? I am currently getting a new top installed and the frame does not look too good. And also where might I get the gasket strip towards the front. It is a 1949 Plymouth by the way. If that was to matter at all. Thanks

    Bluetooth radio set-up

    Thanks to Robin (UK) I just came across an interesting, practical and very reasonable priced bluetooth set-up. https://www.hotrodradios.co.uk/hrrb1 Just thought I should share that. Thom

    Newport wiper motor/ using the original switch

    Hi, Thanks for coming back to me. Any chance that you could show me how you managed to achieve this. I do not mean the location matter, but the shaft modification. Thanks Thom
  8. A question from a friend of mine: He is interested in the Newport wiper engine offering , but does not like the look of the switch. Wich I clearly understand 🙂 So, has anyone ever tried to use the original switch instead. He is interested in any advice. thanks/ thom

    wiper motor engine linkage set-up

    Hi. Thanks. The clips I have found in my possession already. What I am, however, still missing is ... Christ, sometimes finding the right words in English is sooo difficult 🙂 😞 So what I believe that I am still missing is the "hex socket/ longish nut without a thread" that runs through the grommet and around the linkage on the actual wiper motor. What is this hex socket called? thanks

    wiper motor engine linkage set-up

    Hi. Many weeks later I still have one question. What is the part called that - I would describe it as a nut without a thread - that connects the wiper linkage arm on the wiper itself with the actual linkage. Really pardon my englisch, but then I would not know if I could describe it any better in German either 🙂 thanks
  11. Thanks to all. For the final round 🙂 - as everything there is I have understood - let us be purely practical. The only question remaining for me is the position of the toggle switch. And its three positions. Left - middle - right. For this final round let us assume that a) I am stupid - not totally true but not completely false either especially when it comes to electrical settings b) the kick down switch will not be installed and obviously c) the OD cable is properly pulled in. So what position should the toggle switch be when I get started under normal circumstances? Left - middle - right? When I momentarily want to get out of the OD - bearing in mind there is no kick down switch - what would then be the right position of the toggle switch? Left - middle - right? And where would the toggle switch be moved to if I wanted to get back into OD again after that - this would obviously than be the normal dirving setting. thanks for additional insights. Might sound easy and strange to you, but I can't seem to be able to be getting my head around it. thom
  12. I will not be able to really respond to your wonderful notes in full depth. But later. What , however, have to make clear immediately: The harness from George did not come with the kick down switch. So if it really is damaged - as I believe it is, but I shall check - he is under no circumstances to be blamed. An important note regarding the reputation of a great man.
