Wondering if some of you builders out there who have had your P15 dash removed, might be able to help me in preventing the potential for rattles, rubbing, etc.. I should be putting the dash back in the 46 Club Coupe project soon. When I remove parts I like to try and do as thorough a bag-n-tag job as possible as my memory is only a fraction of what it used to be In looking back at my removed parts bin, I found my little Tupperware bucket marked front window trim, from 3yrs ago - with the note and pieces you see in attached pic #1. The two ea black rubber type spacers are looking pretty crumbly - might be able to carve some new ones if I can find a suitable material, if anyone knows of a re-pop on this part - that would of course be great as well...anyway - per my note you see in the pic. I show them going between the dash and the trim along with the white piping cord - on the bottom edge of the garnish molding. What I failed to do was document where the thin, 5ea., pads (kinda looks like a canvas material), were at. Since I didn't include it in my trim drwg., I believe these pieces went underneath the dash, around the screw holes across the top of the dash, between the dash and the metal support underneath. ?? This stuff is too far gone to reuse, so one way or another I'll need to find good replacement materials for the canvas and rubber pieces....so if you've been there and done it - your tips or help would be most welcome. Not really so crazy about trying to be original, even though that's OK, mostly just looking for good lasting results in regards to preventing rubbing and rattling. One thing I noticed, in searching the internet looking for pictures, maybe an exploded dash drwg diagram, etc...was that many of the P15 dash pictures I saw seemed to show piping sticking out on both sides of the window trim, others looked to have piping all the way around the window,...etc.. With the window trim being easily removed, I suppose I could experiment a bit in getting it mounted up nice and snug,...but I'm thinking it would be nice to get the dash mounted correctly the 1st time. thanks in advance, all reply's welcome and appreciated.

I'm going a bit crazy, trying to identify a rattle noise that sounds like it's coming from the tranny. I have a stock P10 transmission mated to one of George Asche's OD units. Everything works fine, I can get to any of the gears, acceleration is good (for a 75 year old wagon), but it always sounds like there is something loose on acceleration or deceleration, and under normal driving loads. I've sorted through other possible causes; shifting mechanism, clutch, sheet metal attachment points, parking brake cable, and fluid level in the tranny and OD, with no change. Do these OD units sound like that normally? Am I worried for no reason?
I am just getting into fixing a couple of issues with a 1940 dodge 2 door sedan. A little background. This was my father in laws car . He passed away a few years ago. my wife wanted to restore and make a tribute car. I am new to the old dodge scene. What goes between the front drivers window and the wing window? does anyone have pics of this? The pass side has a chrome strip glued to the window kind of guiding it up. should the drivers one have one to? And does anyone have any ideas where I could find one? Also the hood will not stayed latched it is currently bungie corded down. How do these adjust or is how do they work I cannot seem to figure it out and its driving me bonkers. Thanks in advance.
