Installing a Roof on Your 1931 Model A Slant Window Fordor Sedan

Running Time: 52 minutes .

Features Bob Grady & Alex Janke, MAFCA Judges.

Let them guide you through the process of installing a new roof on your Fordor Sedan. They begin AFTER you have installed a new wood kit in the body of your car. Then they start by showing you how to shape that wood to accept a sheet of Masonite(tm), carpet and vinyl. Everything looks easy once you know how it's done.

Installing a Roof on Your 1931 Model A Slant Window Fordor Sedan video Contents:

  • After you have installed a new wood kit in your car body, this program shows you 14 additional steps for installing your roof.
  • How to prepare a template for use in cutting your Masonite(tm), carpet and vinyl.
  • How to make a flat piece of Masonite(tm) conform to your curved roof.
  • How to determine where to insert screws into your roof.
  • What products and techniques to use in completing your roof installation project.
  • How to bend aluminum trim moulding to fit the rounded rear corners of your sedan body.
  • How to seal your trim moulding so it is weather tight.

This method of roof installation differs from the factory method because it does not use chicken wire like the factory used. When completed, we believe this roof will perform better and be more quiet as you drive down the road. This video was made as our experts installed a roof on a car owned by one of our other club members.

These videos were produced by the Diablo As. They are NOT professionally made videos. Installing a Roof on Your 1931 Model A Slant Window Fordor Sedan is an edited version of the project we undertook for one of our club members. We believe the information and techniques shown on the video will help you in your Model A restoration and maintenance efforts.
