Re: 1930 Deluxe Coupe Windlace

For the tubing, go to your local hardware store and buy 3/8" clear vinyl tubing. Foam was not used on Model A's.

Re: Dave Lopes Fordor Model A

Dave's Fordor is still here in California, owned by his family. It is indeed an original, unrestored 4500 mile Model A. I drove it several months ago during a visit with his widow.

Re: 29 Tudor hood alignment

What I have done in the past to correct this is to shift the back of the body to one side or the other. A small amount of movement in the rear will result in a large change to the front of the cowl...
