Re: Labaron & Bonney don't know how to install their tops

I have the original 33-34 instructions (8 pages) and can send a copy. Send me a pm with your address and give me a few days to get the copies made. I can also send photos as you need them.

Re: 35 pickup seat springs

The original floorboard is plywood. The bottom picture in #5 is an original, which had delaminated and was pretty beat up. I made an exact duplicate.

Re: 34 Cabriolet top iron; bent or not
