1927 Model 50 roadster windshield/cowl rubber grommets needed

Recommended Posts

Hello--can anyone suggest a source for repro grommets that go at the base of the windshield stancion where it passes through the cowl? Steele Rubber lists one that is square or rectangular, but the original we have is round.

Failing that, has anyone had experience making something like this out of a block of rubber? I would be interested to hear how you shape and finish such an item.

Thanks

Ian if your looking for a harder rubber to make parts out of try a hockey puck. They respond well to a lathe, milling machine and even a die grinder.

You could also shop around for possible round blocks (anything Ford that could fit?). I did buy the Steele rectangular ones for my 29, they appeared very generic and needed lots of cutting to fit. Do also have an Australian set that was even worse for fit, but less pricey.

Thank you both. I think a puck may not be thick enough, but I like that idea for other applications. I'm thinking I'll have to find something round and fairly close, then work with it.

You may want to send it over to Restoration Specialties and Supply and let them match something up for you.. They have a deep catalog that may help you.. I have used them many of times and they have bailed me out of a few jams over the years.. Restorationspecialties.com
