After making a die for myself I was told that the dimples are reproduced for Model A's.

I got this from a thread on the HAMB. Not sure if all the info. is up to date, but you can give it a try.

32 Fender Patch

He also makes patches for the front fenders of a 32 where screws go though to the frame in front

Keep V-8ing and 4-banging!

Wanted, lower side sections of 32 radiator cowl.

If you know someone with a metal lathe it is not difficult to make a pair of dies having a thru-bolt to pull them together. Receiver die on top, pusher below--make them out of scrap mild steel. Slick solution.
