Does anyone know of a source for the door latch handle grommet which attaches to the upholstery panel? Either a source of a photo would be helpful. Thanks jerry

If this item isn't carried by Lang's, Snyders or Mac's, you might give these guys a try:

One of you folks with a survivor--I'd like to see a close up pic of an original car door panel where the latch exits. All I've ever seen is just a hole.

There was no grommet originally like Mike says. The picture here shows an accessory that allows the side curtain to open with the door. Normally there would be two upholstery tacks holding the corner of the door material.

Thanks Royce. When I started tearing my 15 apart for restoration the panels were gone.

Should the upholstery panels for 1915 be "vinyl" covered or just the hardboard material?

If covered, when did Ford stop using the cover and just go with the hardboard material?

This is what the door latches look like on my 1915 Touring:


FRONT DOOR


REAR DOOR, PASSENGER SIDE

A little background:
My car has engine number 767495 (original engine) and was built around April/May. Don't know which factory or anything else about its history other than the previous owner having bought it at an estate auction around 2008. About two years later, he sold it to me and said that the last restoration had been done about ten years prior (1998).
