I am trying to put side curtains on a 25 pick up, do the fasteners on the windshield Frame go on the side or on the front? I have looked at lots of pictures and I can't really tell.any help would be appreciated.

There are hooks, 2 on each windshield post fastened to the windshield bolts and one snap on each side that fastens to a mating snap on the top material.

One more question on Lang's website it says two hooks per car, the way I understand your description it's two hooks per Post. Two hooks per post makes sense to me.

It is two hooks per post, four hooks total. :-)

Don't forget too, the two hooks are different, and were raven finished when new. I made a complete set of side curtains for my '25, and I got the prints from the Benson Ford archives. If you decide to make them, make paper patterns first to avoid mistakes. This is especially critical for the common sense fasteners, in as much as we don't have the jigs that Ford used to line up the bows! I had to re-adjust the common sense fasteners several times before they would fit into the correct places on the sockets.

The upper hook is longer, and curves around the windshield post. The bottom one is shorter, and is straight with a step in it. Raven finish is a form of anodizing that Ford used on small parts such as running board bolts and nuts, and a lot of small items.

Thanks Larry, I will try the ones that Lang's sales for now and maybe I can acquire the correct set later.

I find the side curtain hooks a lot at swap meets.

Raven Finish is a black-colored bluing. It provides some rust protection, but not much! I often use the DP90 epoxy primer to replicate it. A bit more durable.
