And how does it go on

Thank you ..Lorenzo

I assume you are referring to hide 'em welt. It is available from most of the vendors.

To the best of my knowledge, Fold-over welt was what ford used around the tops of the closed cars. Hide'em was also used, but mostly on the seat upholstery areas. I believe the fold-over was used, as it would keep water out better than the hide'em.
I assume there is documentation somewhere????

Here is a picture that Dave S. posted some time ago. The fold over welting and Visor would be the original. While this is for the earlier Closed Cars it would appear that it carried through to the later Coupes and Sedans.

Best regards, John Page Australia

Also, the rain gutter nail cover strips are longer than the gutter, so as to cover the ends of the fold-over. The Hide'em wouldn't work with them, another vote in favor of fold-over. Now to get the top kit folks to supply the kits with fold over instead of Hide'em like they do now.

Lorenzo,
Believe it or not, halfway between your arrows! You have to be able to fold it over, and nails too high will prevent that. Too low, and they won't be covered by the fold over part.

Lorenzo,
Originally, no, but some folks do, especially if they are doing a lot of foul weather driving, not glue but a sealer. 3-M makes some clear automotive seam sealers that would be good for this, and they have a fairly long working time. It's been too long since I used any to make a specific recommendation, sorry!
