Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Where to find 1926/27 brass upholstery panel grommets

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?

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".

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?
