Default '33-'34 roadster seat sight shields

As many of you know, both the '33-'34 roadsters (and '35-'36 roadsters with slightly different versions) had sight shields at the rear lower corner of the door opening to block off the gap at the back of the bottom of the seat cushions. The '33-'34 version is shown below in the extreme lower left corner of the photo.


Does anyone know of an available reproduction or perhaps possess a pattern for the '33-'34 version?


Thanks!


David

I don't think these have been reproduced. The structure of the reproduction body's don't require them. They are quite large, and very important. You might ask Karl Wescott.

They're not structural as they were made from sheet metal, but rather to solve an appearance problem. Immediately next to them are the forged brackets which provide the structural support for the B pillar.
