I bought a pack of reproduction touring body "wood upholstery tack strip bolts" from Lang's, part number 5190CXB, they arrived today. The reproduction bolts match the originals exactly as far as I can tell, they have the correct threads, length, and small head size, see attached pic.

Kudos to the manufacturer and suppliers! :-)

Question for the experts - I know these bolts use a #12-24 square nut, but did they originally use a lock washer under the nut?

These bolts are 1/4-20, and the square nuts didn't use lockwashers.

Can't see the head. I assume the head is smooth? Jim Patrick

Yep; totally smooth as original.

I used some of those bolts on my 21 Touring I restored. They were exactly alike the few good ones I manages to save from the body. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when the 'new' ones arrived.

Question for R.V. - Do you make another version of this bolt that is 1/4 inch longer?

The bolt shown above does not provide enough thread engagement in the nut to be trusted on the top pivot irons (the mounting feet on the pivot iron casting are pretty thick).

Another question for R.V. , do you have a list or a website of all the parts you make? Thanks Tim

FYI R.V., my question was rhetorical - for my 1925 touring body, I got four 1/4 inch longer carriage bolts and ground down the heads to match the correct size and shape. :-)

Mark, I make the same bolt in four lengths: 3/8", 1-1/8", 1-13/32", and 1-3/4" long. Each has a different use on the Model T.

Tim, I will mail you a catalog if you will email me your address.
