I am in dire need of the upper door window anti rattle strip for the 1926-27 Coupe and 28-29 truck door. This is the metal piece that holds the window rubber at the top of the doors. It is about 24.5" long with three holes in it. Please do not tell me that it is the anti rattle piece that goes under the door trim (finger pull) your arm because it is not the same piece.
It doesn't look too complicated to make plus it isn't very visible after mounting so maybe it doesn't have to be perfect, just functional. If you haven't got the tools, perhaps someone you know has?
I thought about making one or two. Not viable so I need to find one.
Why wouldn't it be viable? I would have tried to fold a slightly oversize piece of sheet metal around a piece of flat iron with the inner size of the channel, then cut the edges with an angle grinder, pull out the flat iron piece and drill the holes - or are there any other special features of the part?
Mainly, because I just don't want to.
Dave, they are easy to make, i took a rusted but complete one to a sheet metal shop and had them make them out of Stainless steel,it's not a hard thing to make, the sides are just turned in a little to hold the rubber, it is a lot easier to punch the holes before bending, i paid ten dollars for two for my 26 coupe.
I thought about having them made up. I like the sport of finding things. I don't want to make one but I might end up having to do it. I can make one in my garage. I would rather find one.
