RESTORING HISTORY ONE CAR AT A TIME

WEATHERSTRIP FOR OPEN CAR DOORS

A rubber weatherstrip is now installed at
the bottom of the doors on the phaeton, the roadster and open cabs.

This new weatherstrip forms a tight seal between the bottom of the door and the body sill.

For cars now in service, a special weather- strip A-35702-A has been released. This strip has four small slots in it that correspond with the location of the tacks in the bottom of the cardboard assembly.

To install A-35702-A weatherstrip, remove the four tacks at the bottom of the cardboard assembly and insert the slotted edge of the rubber under the lower edge of the cardboard assembly, so that when the tacks are replaced, they will pass through the slots in the weatherstrip (see Fig. 876).

Due to the rubber being approximately 1⁄8” thick, it will be necessary to use trim retainer nails 24108. These are approximately 1⁄8” longer than the nails removed.

For the rear door of the phaeton, use weatherstrip A-36536-A.
