Upholstery

The 82-A closed cab had a black upholstery scheme (production start – July 1928?) and a brown upholstery scheme (August 1928? thru June 1930).

Upholstery – Panels

The 82-A closed cab had cardboard upholstery panels (cowl, door, quarter, quarter panel, and windshield header)

Upholstery – Windlace

Windlace assemblies were made up of the color scheme’s seat upholstery material wrapped and sewn around a black, hollow, rubber core. Windlace at the top and front of the door was under pressure with the door closed. In cold weather, the core remained flexible. The different outside diameters of the windlace cores are shown in the table below.

Windlace Assembly Parts (by Color Scheme) – 82-A Closed Cab

Black Brown Core Part Description
A-80472 A-73472 3/8” Windlace (on door bottom) assembly
A-80362 A-73368 1/4″ Windlace (on header above door) assembly
A-80364 A-73480 5/32” Windlace (on door front) assembly
A-80366 A-73476 3/8” Windlace (on lock pillar) assembly

Bottom windlace was attached to the door under the upholstery cardboard panel and was held in place by the door cardboard nails. The windlace was simply pushed outward when the door was closed.

Top windlace was above the door. It was clamped between the wooden door header and a wooden windlace retainer.

Front windlace was attached directly to the door. The upper portion of the windlace went under the metal slide for the door finish strip (i.e. window trim). The lower portion of the windlace went under the door upholstery cardboard panel.

Rear windlace was attached to the inside face of the lock pillar with tacks. The windlace tail was covered by the quarter lock pillar and quarter cardboard upholstery panels except for the lower section of the windlace. This section was hidden by the seats. The windlace was simply pushed inward when the door was closed.

The rear windlace was secured to the sill with a pan head sheet metal screw on some cabs. These screws (see gallery) have been found on both a February 1928 and a March 1930 82-A cab. Other cabs within this date range do not have the sill screw hole. It could be that this was done at upholstery installation time as an assembly plant option.
