Default Wood patterns

Are wood patterns available for a 1930 Coupe?

I will tell you upfront that each print is around $50 a piece, --and I would venture a guess there is 20-25 prints that will be needed. In addition, you will need to go thru the Body Parts Book and find the appropriate part number for the piece you are looking for. In some cases, the part number in the book is an assembly drawing which means you will then need to look on that print to find each of the subcomponent prints that makes up the wood piece. Speaking from experience, this can take hours as you also have the possibility of revision changes and engineering notes that must be looked at to determine what is correct for your friend's car.
