Greetings. I am about to put a top on my 1925 Coupe. Some say to put chicken wire or lath on the top across the bows. The tops for sedans had lath but I never saw a coupe with lath. Has anyone put a new top on one and put lath or chicken wire on it. I understand the reason, but apparently Ford didn't feel it necessary on the coupes

I used chicken wire on mine and the top came out really nice on my 24 Coupe. No I don't think Ford used chicken wire originally when they built the cars.
I used a kit and it was recomended to use the optional chicken wire if you wanted to.

It does make a smooth roof and looks nice with the new top material.

Some will say (purists) not to use it because Ford didn't. Not original.
But there are a lot of mechanical improvements we use internally in the engine, transmission, and rearend.

I personally don't think it makes any difference. Its an improvement you cant see and doesn't change the appearance of the car.
Its your choice. And it is an improvement.

Thanks John...I'll take your lead on that and use wire myself.
