  1. Hi: I am looking for 2 units like the attachment. It is for a 1929 Pierce-Arrow, but similar-looking units were for Fords and others. The Trico numbers are RSL 31 and RSL 32. The units are mounted with the flat side down. Will all Tricos work regardless of which orientation they are mounted? Thanks Gregg grh2468@gmail.com wiper motor.pdf
  2. I have likewise used Broadway Title for motorcycles with success.
  3. I am looking for a pair of usable Trico wiper motors for my 1929 Pierce Arrow 133 sedan. Mine have usual '20s pot metal issues. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. I am trying to find a cloth edgewelt and wire-on that will harmonize with the upholstery itself. I'm sure I will not be able to get an exact match for the original. This was a plush-type cloth with a zig-zag pattern. There are a couple of different samples that I received from the mentioned suppliers that would work OK, I'm trying to see if anybody has any other suggestions. Thank You for your response.
  5. Can anyone provide another supplier for the above interior trim materials? I've already got samples from Hampton/LeBaron-Bonney, Kanter, and Hirsch. Thanks for any advice. This is for my 1929 Pierce-Arrow.
  6. I also have had excellent work done by Pauls for my Pierce Arrow. They have done some outstanding repair work on parts that were badly corroded or cracked. They are not cheap but if you have ever had bad experieces with platers, the piece of mind knowing that the job will be done properly is worth it.
  7. Don Sommer (248) 435-6115 manufactures repros of the Woodlite parking lights @ $1400/pair. His catalog doesn't list the headlights though.
  8. Thanks for the advice Chuck. I may try one of those "hot rod" hidden antennas another contributor suggested.
  9. I have a 1929 Pierce Arrow. I have installed a Philco radio from the early '30's in it and the roof "chicken wire" antenna leaves something to be desired for reception. The restorer of the radio recommended that I install an antenna that mounts to the side of the cowl. I believe that this type of antenna was used in the early '30's but I am reluctant to drill holes especially if the judges don't like it. What do you advise? Thanks.
  10. I have a 1929 Pierce Arrow. I have recently installed an early '30's Philco radio and the "chicken wire" antenna in the roof doesn't give me as good reception as the radio is capable of. The gentleman who rebuilt my radio recommended installing an antenna that mounts on the side of the cowl. I am reluctant to drill holes to install it, especially if points will be deducted. On the other hand I believe that such an antenna was a common period accessory in the early '30's. Very few cars had a radio in 1929. What do you advise? Thanks.
  11. Try checking out EBay.
  12. At the estimated price, this repro would be a bargain indeed. If the quality is good I would certainly be interested. I was given a price of $1700 by a well-known carb shop for fabrication of a new brass UU-2 for my Pierce Arrow.
