Ford Model A Pickup Restoration March 2017

I wanted to finish the back side of the cabin this month. I painted the wooden board last year but it was not mounted yet to the car.

Regarding the progress on my wheel cover I'll give a report next month. What I can say is that I have made some progress :-)

This is the back wall of the cabin how it looks like - a little bit boring and therefore I will mount the board, which protects the cabin rear wall and the glass window from damage when fully loaded.

First, I installed the crossbars which protect the rear window.

The two flat steel I only have to fix with some screws. The holes in the board have been made when I painted it.

All screws and small parts are powder coated.

The 2 mm sheet metal is not original, but it protects from scratching my green color.

Now I have to make all holes at the right position.

Everything is ready for assembly.

The lower board is screwed to the back side of the cabin.

Here I used PET foil to eliminate the end play - now the board should not rattle during a ride.

The board is mounted, what's missing is the seat bench.

To prevent the seat from slipping around, I've put some anti-slip stuff on top of the support surface. Therefore mask the surface …

… then apply the Weicon brand, flatten it with a finger and remove the masking tape immediately.

Now let it dry.

And this is the final view of the back side of the car. Let's see if I can have these +2 seats also registered ;-) probably not. The seat is from the 40's and it was used for Sunday journeys.
