Can you get the part that is attached to the Body between the doors?

Don, I bought mine from Langs. The repro socket that fits the hole in the body does not fit as well as the original. There is also a special tool that Langs sells to install the sockets with. They are hard to get a tight fit in the body. I suggest to buy at least one extra maybe even two extras.

'26-'27 side curtain fasteners, lower one is the socket (female) {Lang's p/n SNAP-R} to place in the sheet metal. The upper pictured part is the male part {SNAP-M} with spring loaded prongs, with pushbutton, attached to the fabric curtain, to fit into the SNAP-R.

How do the new snap-Rs fasten to the body? The new ones just sort of stick in the holes, I don't see a way to secure them.

Factory is interference fit. Worn old socket holes might not give the grip. Have used a smear of JB Weld to secure,wiping excess away immediately with dampened cotton swab. Worked for me.

The body snaps are installed with a punch that hits the dimple on the base and expands the slits on the side. If a Model T dealer does not have the tool look in the Model A section

They were probably still using Anzo fasteners in 1926 too.
