Bedford MW innerside door cover ... cardboard???

Recommended Posts

I have one original door cover attached to the innerside of the door in my bedford MW which most resembles cardboard or hardboard. Can anyone confirm that this is indeed cardboard/hardboard or what would be the best material to make a copy for the other door?

 

Thanks,

Danny

My MWR has a kind of Hardboard on the inside of the doors. Having owned it for over forty years and never replaced it I assume it is original. I presume you can still buy hardboard which would look like the original.

I think that you will find the door cards were made from MILBOARD it was also used for the head lining of cab roofs

Hi Dale,

 

I'm interested if you have some NOS for the left and right door!

Thank you all for the information! Good to know about Masonite which is a high quality hardboard or better oil tempered Masonite. A little search on the web tells us that the Masonite hardboard was first made in England in 1898 by hot-pressing waste paper. Masonite was patented in 1924 in Laurel, Mississippi, by William H. Mason, who was a friend and protégé of inventor Thomas Edison. Mass production started in 1929. In the 1930s and 1940s, Masonite was used for many applications including doors, roofing, walls, desktops, and canoes. It was sometimes used for house siding.

 

Cheers,

Danny

I'm with Wally, I thought it was Millboard rather than Masonite.

 

You can buy a modern version of Millboard from some of the vintage car suppliers.

Probably the same as on QL doors as well and I would say it is like normal hardboard. Millboard is a bit to flexible and generally thinner.

Sorry to disappoint you lads, but they are not the same as the photo you put up.

Use the heat exchanger behind to give you an idea of scale

Bedford, but not correct !

Never mind
