restoring a 1912 t and of course the more I try to fix the more I find that needs fixing. Some of the wood body parts have rotted away. Where do you guys find parts like this or do you make them?
I would check Langs (modeltford.com) or Snyders (Snydersantiqueauto.com)
The Craftsman makes whole bodies for the early years - maybe he helps with parts too?
Bill: The vendors do not sell wooden parts for your 1912 other than the wooden clash strips, and the dash. Given that there were a half dozen suppliers of 1912 bodies, you would not likely find these parts usable if they were available, given the extent of variation between them. No wooden part on a Ford body is complicated to make yourself, but you do need a reliable pattern. If your wood skills are not up to the task, I recommend you post photos of the pieces you need here. Someone here can certainly help you work up a credible replacement.
Bill, sent you a PM.
