Default 1930 cowl band

I removed a stainless steel cowl band from a 1930 tudor, one side had the usual bolt that sticks in at 45 degrees. The other side did not have the usual bolt, but had 3 carriage bolt in the groove of the band and they lined up with 3 square holes in the cowl. I see the same 3 square holes in other cowls. It appears that these 3 bolts were a fix, because I can see where the 45 degree bolt was originally attached. Was it a fix? What were the holes in the cowl for?

Default Re: 1930 cowl band

Early 30 cowls (particularly trucks) used 3 carriage bolts on both sides to hold the cowl band on. To modify this type of cowl to accept the later band the bottom patch panels have to be replaced and the sub-rails have to be replaced with the later type. Sounds like yours was half modified.
