Re: lockheed decal

Here are a couple of badge bars that I have in stock, one the early curved type and the other the later straight type: Badge Bars.jpg Averaged out over three - these two and the one on my '36 LM SS - the hole size is one inch and the thickness of the casting at this point is 1/4 inch. Give or take f...

Re: lockheed decal

LOL! I should have referred back to our discussion on earlier pages of this thread and your photo!

OK...will do. I have examples of both the early curved badge bar - '33 to '35 - and the later straight type - '36 to '37 to reference.

Re: 1952 Paint colors / code/ manufacturer

Hey Duane, The original top would have been a kind of tan "tweed" effect with some of the primary car colour woven in. I have samples I could scan. The interior would have either been leathercloth, or leathercloth with leather seat facings. Singer always did door panels and trim in leather...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey D'Arcy,

If you mean the one that went into the starting handle hole on the badge bar, talk to Gifford Wright as he ran a photo of one in the Singer Owner, which started a bit of a debate. He may know who has it. That would be a lovely piece of unobtainium to replicate!

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

A very tough and hard grey primer was used by Singer and perhaps this is what the remnants are . My '46 A series had never been restored and there was black paint on the scuttle inner side panels and body colour paint on the inside and outside of the wings. The inner wings looked almost primer colour!

Re: Carpet backed bucket seats

Super photos as these are original seats and you can see exactly how they were done. The only real significant difference in design is the seat pocket! Singer didn't change too much unless they had to, or if they went to a new supplier. The inner door pull handles on the early Nine Sports are the sa...

Re: 1928 Singer Senior rebuild and Hello !

Coming along nicely! Lucky that you got a brass radiator surround. Mine is a '29 model Senior sold in November '28, so has the 'heavy' rear axle, but the radiator surround is steel and rotted away near the front mounted drain plug. A crude riveted repair was done many years ago. Chrome quality isn't...

Singer 4AD repro hubcaps can still be found on eBay, but the A / 4A "Singer" logo type seem to have dried up!

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Re: Carpet backed bucket seats

Here are two shots of an original pre-war seat back with original leather upholstery. The carpet had rotted away and had been replaced with leatherette, but you can see how it is assembled...

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

I've restored a couple of 4A's and a couple of A Series Roadsters over the years and I can tell you that the welded bracket is not original and would prevent the column from being adjustable for height, as it originally was. The upper steering column bracket is bolted to the upper face of the firewa...

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

I agree with Fred for sure...Singer used mild steel fasteners and I note from your bucket of screws that you also have the original carriage bolts with square nuts, an interesting feature that lingered on from pre-war production, where they featured more prominently. As Fred says, slotted screws are...

Re: Carpet backed bucket seats

Yes, you can just see the wood strip, but it is shaped to allow the seat back to fold forward.

The basic design barely changed from mid-thirties!

Hope that helps!
