Re: 32 Cabriolet repro parts?

Lots of guys may be able to make one by the other. You’d be shocked at how many parts are fabricated on the rarer body styles
Mirror image?? How about post a pic ??

Re: 1929 Cabriolet door window parts

To the best of my knowledge no one makes the special slides in the door that the window frames ride/guide in
Scarce puppies!

Re: 1929 Cabriolet door window parts

I make the replacement window surround in stainless (or mild steel) with bottom mounting but not the regulators nor the guides that go in the doors. If that helps any

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

Re: Two tooth steering box lower race removal

Make a “tool” if you have the capability to press thru both holes at once

Re: $1500 Model A Horn

With the price of chrome they really might cost you that
