Looking to see where others put the year number badge on the radiator. Lower right? Thanks
Maybe some pics ?
I've seen them left and right. I only have one on my '12,it's on the lower left corner. The poor '13 has been left out for now! Put it where it works for you.
I think you are referring to those year number cutouts sold by the model T parts dealers?
I think the lower right hand corner is the preferred spot, but there really are no set rules about them.
I actually tend to like those things. Especially on cars that I cannot identify the year myself. Model Ts I often see with a wrong year on them and wonder what the reason is. Model Ts are often difficult to tell for certain. An early '25 may be basically identical to a '24, and not like a "true" '25 (for example). The same can be said for many model/style year changes. So, seeing a year given helps not only the general public to understand something about your car. It also gives people like me something to consider (and contrary to an understandable popular opinion, I am not usually looking for fault). I do like to know what people think of their cars. Often, I will see a car, form a quick opinion (always subject to change), then see the year displayed. Upon looking closer, I will see some details that tell me that car is near the transition, and the year displayed is truly correct. And I learn a little more.
An also by the way. A couple of the few cars that I ever put any sort of radiator badge on? I put the badge over a damaged area on the radiator. Sometimes they look better that way.
Skip the year nameplate and put something period correct on the front and/or rear of the car.
Since you are in New York:
I like the lower left hand corner. With the center of the number lined up with the support bar.
The year of my car is on it's license plates. Seth's looks good where he has it.
If I could get 1914 Alabama plates that would be AWESOME!
