A week or so ago I posted a question asking who makes the best top kits and got a lot of great responses. I took everyone's advice and ordered from Classtique. Now I need to know where to order new wood bows from. Any thoughts? The car I need them for is a 1927 roadster pickup.
Thanks,
Paul

Last steam bent wood bows I purchased were cracked at the bends. However that was for an early car. If you go that route ask the vendor beforehand if the problem still exists. It may not be an issue with your car.

I think RV Anderson still makes them. I do not have any contact info to share with you.

RV's brother Jon makes them. He doesn't use a computer, so you'll need to contact him through RV. rvmodelt@netsync.net

You can make the middle part yourself, but the curved pieces you'll have to buy from Jon, or John Boorinakis in Auburn, California.

Actually, the middle pieces are curved too. They have a little bit of a bow for drainage. Probably why they're called bows. :-)
