I know there are people on this forum that have 24 touring that can answer the question. If not then you will have to do what I am doing on my 1923 Moon. Set the top irons and bows in place and then make a top out of light weight material to build a pattern. Take the pattern and touring to your local trimmer and have them make one for you. Are you a member of the Dodge club as I believe they have a list of suppliers. Lots of luck and if I can help please contact me at Modelt1916 (kill spam) @yahoo.com.

Thanks Jan, I'm going to measure the top to my other DB '24 touring for

fabric needs. I have an armfull of old bows but no top irons and no rear

window. I joked with Vern last night that one way to get a top is buy one

that comes with the accessory car. He would like to make a mold of a rear window frame to cast some repros and asked if I had a loose one for that.

I wrote no,not unless I roll #2 over this Spring.

Big Mark, do you suppose the scissor portion of Roadster top irons may

be common to Touring for same years as to the height dimention, and

one would need to craft a longer tube running forward, or all dimentions

are different?

might want to check with JOHN'S ENTERPRISES in CA. He restored the sockets on my 16 touring car. He may also have some sets available. If you get a set needing work HE IS THE BEST although slow. The set I sent him were pretty rusted out. He replaced each socket reusing all the scissors and castings . Results excellent. Cost about 650 to redo a complete set.

Also I am in CT and I have a top maker...Excellent
