I want to buy side curtains for my 26 roadster. Who makes/sells the best quality side curtains? PK
I would be very careful on this one. The 26-7 side curtains are a lot more complicated than the earlier ones. I would do a lot of research, and try to find someone who has some originals to copy. I suggest you get in touch with Dan Treace.
Sent you a PM with some info.
I had the same question for my 1929 A Roadster - I wound up buying a used set that were exceptionally well made and having them copied by a good friend who is a seamstress using the material that matched my car - then hand fitting the fasteners to match locations to the car... Lot of work, but well worth the effort & cost.
Mary (in her late 80's) did one heck of a job on them, but I'm not so sure she would even talk to me now...
I hope you have good luck - and heed the advice given above - there are some not-so-good ones on the market.
Pat the stock side curtains for my 27 roadster had very small "View ports" Classtique will make custom side curtains with a bigger, and IMHO, safer side curtains and they seem to get good reviews on this site
oops that should read bigger view ports, I believe Mark Strange had them make a pair for him, and they looked very nice.
Here's a link to the thread where I showed the custom side curtains that Classtique made for me (based on a sketch that I sent them):
