Hello fellow Brockway fans,
I have a 1942 Ward Lafrance M1 Series 2 heavy wrecking truck that belonged to the Army. I'm told WLF got their cabs from Brockway and from the pictures it looks like a BW cab of the period. I'm restoring it and looking for advice. The cab wood is in great shape but the doors sag a little. My guess is the front pillars that the hinges screw into are slightly warped resulting in the doors not latching properly. Anyone have advice on how to fix this without doing a cab off the frame restoration. Also I'd like to replace the metal strip that runs along the bottom of the roof line. It is a metal channel that is nailed down with a trim strip then pushed into the channel to seal it. Does someone make a reproduction of this? Any help appreciated. Here is a photo of the old girl.
