The one I got years ago has been restored and painted and is in excellent condition. I would be willing to ...

Wood frame joint diagrams for 1928 526

A couple of years ago I came across a publication showing the wood frame joints and joinery breakdown. I printed it out but now cannot find it. It showed each of the major joints in the wood framing, the metal brackets and a diagram of the joinery. Can anyone point me to this publication?

Does anyone know the size of the bumper bolts for late '20s packards? Specifically 1928 526. Know of a source for bumper bolts?

Adding the gasket around the reflector so that it rests on the glass should put enough pressure on the glass so that it will not move aro...
