Default Rubber Body Pads for a '29 Briggs Fordor (Wood Body)

Sponsored Links (Register now to hide all advertisements)
There seems to be a lack of official information on the shapes and sizes of rubber body pads for wood-bodied Fordors. I'm putting my '29 Briggs Fordor (60-C) back on the frame and installing rubber pads that were previously missing.

I bought a set of pads from Bratton's and it seems to be a one-size-fits-all pack. Some don't appear to be for my car and others seem to be missing.

Is there any information on the size & shape of pads Ford used at the factory?

On a side note, I found an excellent rubber body pad material from MSC Industrial Supply. It is an industrial (reinforced) neoprene gasket material and comes in various thicknesses. The part number for 3/16" material is 31937295. Hope this helps somebody. I'm using the Bratton's pads as patterns for this material (if I can find an answer to my question).
