Can individual wood pieces be purchased from someone?
This appears to be a common problem, but only the top rear body strip for a 1921 Touring is required to install a new top and have something to tack the back window section to, along with the seat back upholstery.
Lang's has them
I wonder why they are not listed for years 1915 through 1920?
Fordwood in Utah is real good, takes a while because they make it to order, but their workmanship is the best I've found.
Mark, thanks for the great lead! Langs just sent me a new 2014 catalog with a recent order, but I had not read that section or area.
Fordwood sells the synthetic tackstrip material and it works really well.
It holds tacks just as good or better than the wood strips and works fine. I used it on my 21 Touring restoration. Very durable material.
It gets down to if your a purist or if you want to use original materials.
It does get covered up.
Nowdays there are several areas in Model T's that have been improved. This is one of them. Others will have their own opinions.
