Default Re: Converting 1929 Coupe from Rumble Seat to Trunk...

The hinges look correct,.....worn, but correct! Fred, that would be a good project
for this winter?

Thank you for posting the photos..

After looking at Fred's hinge(on the lid), I realized that my hinge part wasn't a
fluke,....it looks like Ford ADDED a shim in the fit-up?!

The rumble/trunk lid was already assembled for use as either or so I converted it with no problem what so ever.

Well, now I want to put it back to being a trunk as it was originally and need to collect the correct original parts to do so...so I will have to be scrounging around to find what I need to make the conversion (unless you have something to help with the conversion).

My question is were there "side panels" on the inside as with the rumble seat or no panels at all?

Thanks.

Pluck, I don't know if you received an answer to your panels or not but my std 29 coupe with trunk lid does not have any side panels. If you like I could remove the "junk" from the trunk and take pictures.

Thanks Fred. That reinforces the theory that the 28-29 hinges were mounted to the inside on the rain gutter.

Lunch in Rock Creek sounds good. I'll send you an email when the weather breaks again.
