Is there anyone who makes the brass panel upholstery grommets that go in them 1926 - 27 cars? The Model T dealers sell a plastic version, but I would rather have brass, if possible.
Hmm, I don't even know what they look like...do you have a picture of them?
Here ya go.
I may have some NOS ones. Can you lay a ruler across and take the same photos again so I know which size you need?
I would say that the grommet measures just under 5/8" in flange diameter and the part that inserts into the body is 1/4".
Jim I will look later today.
I've got a whole bag of them. $2 each.
Those are repairable with due diligence and a small punch.
I found some links on the panel fasteners.
Here is a link from a 2009 forum post in which Ford calls them "Glove Fasteners."
If these are the same thing, the 1927 parts catalog also calls them "Glove Fasteners" or buttons, part #6902X, page 48.
Is plastic the only modern replacement?
