Slider Hardware for 295 Continental
« on: April 10, 2015, 05:53:48 PM »
The sliding door that covers the tuner and record storage compartment on my Continental is missing its hardware.  Does anyone have a photo of what belongs there so I can chase down something that will work and look somewhat original?
The photos show the top and bottom of the sliding door.

Thanks.

Jeff

The square one is the bottom slider. The rounded one has a bit of a spring action for lnstall and removal.

Mine is still on the back burner for a rebuild. I'm using a pair of amp 148's in mine with speakers from a 300H CG and wolverine horns.

The original amp 182ba was fried bad so I figured all my other consoles are as original as possible so why not go nuts on this one.

There were two different types of hardware used on the Continental front sliding doors.

My Continental that is undergoing a cabinet refinishing in Dallas has two plastic flat tabs at the top of the door that ride inside the top track.  The bottom of the door only had two nylon pieces about the thickness of a Q-tip that attached to the door bottom and rides on the bottom door track.  One of these nylon pieces was broken when I delivered the cabinet to Fred Taylor for refinishing.  Fred says that is the nylon ribbing material that upholstery shops use to go inside the edging of chair cushions.  He has to find a piece to be able to fix the sliding door.

The other type, which Revolverone has on his blonde Continental, has two plastic wheels installed at both the top and bottom of the door.  The wheels ride in the top and bottom tracks of the cabinet.

Larry,
Thanks.  I have some plastic to make tabs for the bottom, I just have to come up with something for the top that will allow the slider to be snapped into place.
