Thanks Rob and Marty,

But for me, I'd rather use what has been tried and proven than to take a chance with hit and miss.

So, if anyone else would like the template, PM me your address and I'll forward it.


Thanks,
Bret

Is this template rigid, or can it be folded up. Is this a template we would want to put with all the original Blueprints for safe keeping/future reference?

Marty did it off a deluxe door he had. It is brown paper and can be folded and it gets you right in the ball park. It is not an original blueprint, but close enough to duplicate a standard door. I was very happy with Marty's template and duplicated a more rigid one for my future use. It is as good as you can get in my opinion.

Thanks Marty!!

If someone wants to send me a brown paper template, I would love to add it to the blueprints. Rob, I knew it wasn't an original blueprint, just wanted to add it to the archives. Thanks. Mike

Mike I have to make some for someone else I can send one to you too.
I am glad it has been useful, I remember how nervous I was cutting on my newly restored doors.

Arlie,
Pretty sure it is Bret's. The Hood tach and 351 Windsor are dead give away's!!! Not to mention the bright yellow paint.

Dale,
I have template in hand. It is made from some of my favorite bargain beer boxes!! Busch Ice!! It has the hole for the door lights marked out. And the hole for the door speaker if you wish. You will need to cut them out of the template which is just fine. The rest of the mounting holes are marked and you can just tape it on your door and center punch away. The holes with squares marked on the template are for the little push in plastic "thing a ma bobs" that Ford used for the mounting screws.

Neil and the rest of us restorers just drill a small hole in the door. But the concourse guys (I did this one time) may drill out a round hole and then use a small square file to fit the plastic doo dads.

Give me an address and it will be coming your way!! When done please send it back.

Rob
