Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Brass cloth covers not complete set
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Troy Todd on Friday, March 31, 2017 - 03:03 pm:

Does anyone make or know where I can get the pieces separately for a cover set? I only see them for sale in complete sets. I don't have a carbide generator and already have the headlight covers. Really wanting the hub covers.

A good fabric store should carry the material to make silver covers or check on line.

I was thinking socks but I figured they would stretch out quickly. My sister suggested draw string jewelry bags. A bag for the horn might be nice also. I have been using microfiber bowling ball bags for the headlights.

I found the cloth for silver on line and it was easy to sew up covers.

check this anti tarnish cloth out 3 feet x 58" for $12. free shipping!

I lost one hub cover and was able to get it from Langs. Don't know if I was just lucky or that they sell pieces as well as the whole set.

There used to be a primo whiskey (Crown Royal?) that came in a nice felt bag with a draw string. Well, in a bottle in a cloth bag.

It was Crown Royal.

I'll ask Lang's if they sell separates.

That's an interesting material. I've never heard of it. It's not even expensive. I'll have to check into it further. I was trying to figure out how to cover the brass edges of my running boards. That might work.

Burger, have you ever seen rust on brass that's been covered? Works every time.

Don Langs sister makes those covers. I was able to get her to redo the bulb horn covers, because they didn't fit. She did it for me, and I hope she continues to do it for all.

Burger.... It gives you an excuse to not drive your T every day. Takes just too long to get all those covers off. Just kidding but True

Some things are just a bad idea. Polished brass and little covers
sound like one of them.

Langs used to sell them individually, but I haven't looked lately to see if they still do. Give 'em a call. They might have some laying around.

Whatever you do, don't get those lousy white cotton covers. The sewing job is terrible! I bought some real nice canvas exterior/ felt interior covers many years ago and they're sturdy. I think it was a specialty vendor in the back of the Vintage Ford.

If you have a sewing machine and some thread, you certainly can make your own just by buying a couple bucks worth of material online!
