Default Re: 1935/36 roof tack strip

Here are some images of my top insert installation on my 35 panel delivery. The process is the same for a sedan or coupe except chicken wire is used on the coupe/sedan instead of masonite on the panel delivery. The new rubber weather strip was a little difficult to insert, so I made a series of 1" plugs from the old weather strip and secured the masonite/chickenwire, padding and black grained vinyl in place, stretching and smoothing as needed. I then gradually removed one plug at a time inserting the new continuous weather strip until complete. I then carefully trimmed the excess vinyl. See images. I have also included original instructions from Fords service bulletin. Please note that the chicken wire is tacked in place but all other materials are held in place by the rubber weather strip
