Hi guys, where can I get patch/replacement panels for a 1926 model T coupe in Australia? I need the floor in the boot with the hump, the two rear inner wheel arches and the two corner pieces. I have emailed Howells sheet metal a few times but they wont get back to me. Thanks in advance,

Shawn, I think your best bet is to contact some of the Victorian members. Someone with a Coupe like yours would be your best solution. You can then get patterns from them and the easiest way would be to make them out of sheet metal.

A good sheet metal shop ( or a Tech college if you are lucky) may be able to help you if you don't have much in the way of equipment.

Mike Peterson may be able to help you. He specializes in parting out 1926-27 Model T's and selling the original parts to those who need them. The shipping from here to Australia would probably be the most expensive cost of obtaining this part for your T, but, when you need it, you need it. Jim Patrick

Are there any derelict Model T's in Australia you could cannabilize?

US panels probably wont fit your Ausy made body so local sourcing might be your best chance.

Shawn/Ken, As far as I know, the closed cars were imported into Australia from Canada. We only made open cars in Geelong. If this is so, the US parts may fit your coupe.

Hope this helps.

To back up Allan's comments. Yes, the closed cars were imported from Canada, and the US components should fit.

Regards, John Page, Australia.

Thanks guys. Sorry for the late reply. Suffered a really bad case of vertigo. I imported the car from America to Australia. I have looked at the model t website but could not find a forum. I'll check out Mike and see what he can do. Thanks again for all your advice.
