1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #13: Ebonizing the tyres, first timer.

11-20-2019 08:48 AM by crowie | 14 comments »

Ebonizing the tyres, first timer. And mistakes were made, yes. You have to use Super Fine 0000 Steel Wool as the standard hardware steel wool doesn’t devolve. After watching a couple of videos I decided make a brew of strong black tea to prep the timber. I let the tyres dry then applied a coat of the white vinegar and steel wool solution.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #12: Trying to get the front view correct

11-10-2019 02:47 AM by crowie | 13 comments »

Trying to get the front view correct I’ve add some timber to do the inner flare on the front mudguards, then did a lot of hands free shaping. The headlights position was too high but with some more shaping I’ve managed to lower them.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #10: These headlights look way bigger

10-31-2019 08:15 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

These headlights look way bigger so on went the thinking cap again. I found some 1” dia headlights on Bearwood but shipping to Australia isn’t cheap along with a very poor exchange rate. Make them! A craft bead + a tiny wooden spoon + a piece of dowel. They still need some shaping and sanding but they’re okay

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #9: This has been one tricky little part to make.

10-30-2019 01:40 AM by crowie | 7 comments »

This has been one tricky little part to make. A set horns. Started with a bead filling in the hole. Sanded one side flat enough to accept a piece orf 1/2” dowel which I’d drill a 3/16” hole before gluing in place. Once all was held together I shaped the dowel and glued in the top of a wooden golf tee.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #6: Windscreen, dashboard and seats

10-18-2019 06:56 AM by crowie | 12 comments »

The windscreen was done twice as the first one done in Jarrah snapped so the second is American Walnut. The dashboard is also American Walnut on a firewall of Gidgee. The dash needs a steering wheel which will be made using a Dutch wooden button plus a glove box and gear shift level to be completed. The seats are Australian Red Cedar which I had to made twice also thanks to mis-measurements. They will have a small plinth underneath them to raise them which will make the position...

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #5: And now for the engine and radiator....

10-10-2019 03:44 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

And now for the engine and radiator…. Again using the Dutchy blog/plans as the base I worked out the rough measurements for the engine and bonnet [hood]. I didn’t have the correct size timber so made a block to suit from a piece of Huon Pine for the sides and a butterflied piece of Gidgee for the bonnet [hood]. The Huon Pine was chosen on purpose as it will/should make the carving of the bonnet side fins easier… The radiator on the Ford is shaped like a s...
