1932 Saloon Restoration

Hi Guys

Okay so I was in my shop and could tinker a bit.

First I stripped the paint off the old gutters using a local fairly potent paint stripper. It worked quite well and after about 3 rounds I won the battle against the 9 layers of paint that was on there. Came out quite nice after a quick sand and a test fit I couldn't be happier. This is on the Driver side as the off side I was still busy with the wood piece above the door. 

I got steel screws to fix the gutter trim to. I recon I will fit the gutter and finish it before painting over everything in one go. (I will paint and seal under the gutter before this.

It looks quite rough but still needs to get final primer and flat before paint.

I also got that bracket out. About half way down the length of the door this is the bracket in mine. Last picture is how it will sit when looking from the rear. There was a single rivet through the roof panel and what I can only assume a wood screw held it to the door top frame.

Lastly I made a new wood section for above the LHS door. Turned out okay. Now I must just check if the rear ones are still good. RHS door one was replace by my Uncle probably 25 years ago.

That is it for now. Hopefully I can get in the shop again soon.

It is a 4 speed model with the 1933 model features as Austin used up the old bodies before the RP bodies went into production. My car has the steel brackets ( tested with a magnet) as I didn't want to remove the headlining! This confirms my vague recollection of these brackets before I replaced the headlining about 30 years ago. My car has the flush fitting sun roof rather than the later Pytchley type that sits above the roofline at the front.

I can not wait to see how my sunroof sits.

Is there a thread on here that tells the differences between a RP and RN?

O and I will use a 4mm wood screw in stead of the 3.5mm that I used. The 4mm sits nicer and more flush than the 3.5mm.
