Looking for 1" upholstery spiral nails as supplied by Cartouche. Macs doesn't seem to supply panel sets anymore and my set came with only 11 nails. Hardly enough to do both sides of the 26 roadster.
When can get them?
Don't know about spiral nails, but you can get 1" upholstery tacks at Ace Hardware,
I used the tacks Thomas spoke of.
I believe your talking about finishing brads (miniature nails as opposed to regular sized-nails) They are also available at a good hardware store, you might even find the spiral kind, or at least ring shanked, although I've not seen a need for that kind of holding power on interior upholstery panels. Now, I am assuming you are putting in cloth upholstered panels and you want these nails to "disappear" when installed. Since I don't (won't) buy Cartouche kits, I'm not certain of which you speak.
PS If the store doesn't have them, you might be able to get them to order them for you, I got some 2 penny tacks by ordering them (use them in player piano work). I did end up with 5 boxes, but I'll use them all eventually! (they were cheap, under $10 for all 5)
Most T's used a 3/8" upholstery nail. They are no longer available, but there is a good substitute available from Witmers Buggy shop in New Holland, Pa. They are 1/32" larger in diameter.
Antique Auto Ranch in Spokane has them. 509-535-7789.
Try these guys, they have lots of good stuff!
Down load their catalog and go to page 35.
Keep your foot on the pedal,
Thanks for all that. I'll try Restoration Hardware and the Hardware store first to see what I can find,
I do keep my foot on the pedal, but with the Model T it's always the wrong one as I'm just learning to drive the sucker.
