Default wood sizes

Does anyone know how or whereI would get the wood dimensions for a '28 roadster PU cab? I have all the other pieces, just not the ones in the cab. I know I could go to the Ford Library in Dearborn, just did not want to pay their prices for the info.

Sometimes you just got to bite the "A" in the butt and do it!

Find someone who is or has a roadster that they're "Re-wooding" and use their old wood for a pattern. Remember, there may be a difference between standard and deluxe bodies. Top irons do differ from one model to the other and there may be other areas where this is true also. Put an add in the Wanted section. Too bad it's not a Town sedan, I have much of the wood for one that I'm willing to give away.

The wood in a Rst PU cab is pretty simple, and there is not that much of it. Have you priced it from the vendors? There are 9 pieces if I remember. One across and under the seat riser. Two on each inner rear qtr. 4 as seat back supports and one as the tac rail across the rear panel top. There are key cutouts fitting the pieces together. I suggest buying them. Even then you will have to do some fitting.
