47 Cabriolet top

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

I had intended to polish the paint and chrome pieces on my top frame , but unfortunately they are not going to make

the grade. I will have to disassemble and plate/paint.

Any guidance or suggestions from somebody who has been there/done that?

I assume there are replacement fasteners for the rivetted joints. Is there a good source?  Kits?

Thanks in advance,

Dennis

Hi Dennis

 

I have seen them sold on a Ford parts sight, but failed to save it--Alan Whelihan Vintage Auto Warehouse lists them

I drilled out the rivit end, then drilled it , tapped and installed a short bolt, washer to reattatch..ok , functional but

I was looking for a set as well.  I had them rechromed along with the irons.

I have always found or made stainless rivets. No chance of hammering off the plating when installing.

stainless will buff to look like chrome. Good luck and take pictures for reference

Thanks for the replies. I have not started disassembly but will have to in about a week or so.

I will post back with what I find or make.

Thanks,

Dennis
