All the tack strips that the suppliers sell are 21 or later, where can I get wood tack strips for the earlier body style? I don't want to make them. Thanks

You can also get them from Ford Wood in Utah, check their website at http://www.fordwood.com/ their workmanship was first rate, that's where I got mine for my 22. :-)

I haven't used it myself, but several folks here have recommended the hard rubber material which Lang's sells. They say it's easy to work with and holds tacks well. It's also way less money than the wood ones, being $1.25/lin. ft.

I made the tack strips for my '26 out of a piece of dimensional PVC "lumber" from Home Depot. Easy to cut, even with a handsaw, extremely easy to bend and holds tacks very well. Cheap too.

It's much easier to reach Jon at his cell number:
716-499-7255

He has no computer.

I used the rubber material with no problems. You need a heat gun to warm it up for curving and bending. Holds screws and nails just fine It does not show and won't rot.

I think I'm going to try that first. How many feet did you buy?
