  1. Window sweeper question

    Does anyone have any tips on how they installed new window sweepers on their window frames? I'm starting to regrain my dash and window frames and will be installing new sweepers on them. I see the old ones appear to be stapled on with these huge staples!. Thanks! Kevin
  2. Proper Speaker Ohms

    I'm restoring the radio in my '48 Plymouth which is a Philco C4608. It was missing the speaker but I was able to find an original one on Ebay . I'm not sure about a 1939 model but my radio uses a 4ohm voice coil and I think the field coil was about 3 ohms. You can use a P.M. style speaker, The field coil is only used to provide the magnetism for the voice coil. Most old home radios would utilize the field coil as part of the B+ power supply so you couldn't easily adapt those but it will work fine for an auto radio. Good luck! Kevin
  3. dash control removal tool

    The tool I remember seeing was more like a hollow tube with two prongs on the end that fit into the slots on the retainer, but your idea will work. I'll see what I can come up with, thanks! Kevin
  4. dash control removal tool

    Hey guys, I'm trying to remove the heater switch from the panel cluster on my 48 Plymouth. I thought I saw a picture of the tool on here somewhere but can't find it. Does anyone know if this tool is available anywhere or what can I use to remove the escutcheon with out damaging the finish? Thanks! Kevin
  5. 1941 Chrysler C28 Wiring Harness

    I've bought 2 wiring harnesses from YnZ's The first for my 1937 Pontiac and one for my 48 Plymouth. Both are excellent quality and I had no problems installing on my Pontiac. I am in the process of rewiring my 48 Plymouth right now. I pulled the dash from my Plymouth to make it easier and also to woodgrain it. I left the dash in my Pontiac when I rewired it and it was a lot more tedious craning your head under the dash to see where things go. Other than that I didn't find it to be overly difficult to do. Just take lots of reference photos or make drawings. Good luck with your project! Kevin
  6. 48 Plymouth dash removal question

    Hey, thanks guys! I bit the bullet this morning and gave it a shot, and the dash actually came out easier than I expected! This will make wood graining and rewiring a lot easier, thanks for your input! Kevin
  7. 48 Plymouth dash removal question

    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how much of a nightmare it would be to remove the dash on my 48 Plymouth? I have a new reproduction wire harness I'm going to be installing and I would also like to wood grain the dash. Both would be easier to do with it out of the car but if it's a huge headache to remove, I'll just work around it. Any tips or thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks! Kevin
  8. The end of our hobby?
