Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

Thanks for your offer to help. The 1941 Mercury is all by itself and anyone that has done a lot of research on the car would be a great help to someone trying to restore one.

Keep watching this Forum and join in anytime that you can give an answer.

Hi sq1954,

I am trying to restore a 41 Mercury tudor sedan. Where I am getting stuck is in trying to find a source for the original interior. I've found the upholstery chart, but I can't seem to find a kit for the Broadcloth (M-16810-G), Sidewall Cloth (M-5076-L), Bedford Cord (M-5085-H) or Headlining Cloth (M-16906-H). I thought I had a good lead with the Cartouche interiors available from Mac's, but their selection does not represent original Mercury interiors. Any suggestions or recommendations?

I do not know of any correct interior kits for the 1941 Mercury closed cars. You might try SMS fabrics for material close to the original pattern and have the seat covers made. There are firms that make headliner kits that would be close to the original.

https://smsautofabrics.com/

Automotive Upholstery shops also have sample books where you might find something close. I doubt if any of the vendors that have commissioned reproductions for antique cars have done so for any year of Mercury. There just isn't the demand for the material.

If you have samples of the original upholstery, try to match them rather than the chart samples.

Is there a separate advisor for the 41 Merc listed in the v8 magazine? If not, there could be, or maybe be referred to by the current Merc advisor. I rescued all the extension parts for the front of a 41 Merc from a rodder i.e. radiator mounts etc. and some other small parts. If someone needs them, give me a call, let me know. 42oink

42oink, are you volunteering to be the 1941 Mercury Advisor? Contact Jerry Windle and let him know your qualifications and he can advise you on how to proceed.

TomO, Sorry, I'm a 42 Ford guy. Just didn't want good parts getting trashed. I got the impression sq1954 was offering help to other v8ers, and was suggesting a route he might consider. Am I wrong, sq1954? 42oink

No need to be sorry. Your offer to help is appreciated, I just did not understand that you were replying to sq1954. He hasn't posted on the Forum for over a year.

I hope someone sees your post and uses the parts to save a 41 Mercury.

Tom
