How do you put a roof on a closed Model T Sedan. Does anyone have video reference for a sedan or coupe roof? Do restorers still use chicken wire?
Are there any photographic instructions available?
I have done two Fordors and a coupe..if you want PM me and I will send pictures.
Opps forgot....and a 22 centerdoor.
Model T's did not use chicken wire. KGB
Chicken wire is not used on the Model T. Here is a view of a Fordor roof wood before covering. 1925 Fordor sedan.
Just a reminder. As shown in the photo, the headliner goes in first and is tacked from above. It can be done after but originally they were done before the top went on.
Chicken wire has been used a lot of T closed cars over the years.
It does help to make a smoother top.
Its applied over the top wood slats and it does help.
A purist wouldn't like to do it but then using modern bearing set-ups and other mechanical improvments isn't pure either.
Besides you cant see whats under the new top material much less whats inside a rear end or engine.
