Default 1932 ford luggage rack stainless strips

Anyone know if the strips are reproduced by chance or someone that has them.

Thanks in advance!!

The people in Indiana that reproduced the racks (and reproduction steel bumpers) offered the strips as well, but I am not sure if they are still in business. Their strips were narrower in cross section than the originals, but not by that much.

Might the name of the company that made the racks be Ezra?

The company was originally Ezra Welding, and is now Metal Fab Engineering. In 2019, I talked to Les Ezra (Paul's son) about getting some stainless strips for '35-'36 racks. Les said emphatically that they were out of that business and would not make any more strips. He did ultimately agree to look around for any left over pieces, and sold a partial set to me which was enough to finish that rack. Another good supplier that is gone.
