Hello All, hoping there is someone who can help. I bought these brackets a while ago.Haven't been able to install because I can't figure how to install. They are supposed to support the upper floor boards.Previous owner made aluminum brackets and they do the job but I'd prefer the originals.
So, What am I missing? How are these brackets installed? My T is a 1925 Roadster. Thanks John

Not enough information to go on. What body are you using or style? The brackets would have been riveted to the firewall and rested on the wood sills. Your fire wall may not have the correct holes and with out a body installed may be hard to line them up correctly. (If you are using a stock open car body)

Yep, they're floorboard raisers...they support both the upper and middle floor boards that the pedal plates mount too. The curved surface is what the interior panels butts against.

They install exactly the way Scott's pictures show.

I am not sure if this matters, but the new parts you show are not correct for 25. The 25 does not have the curved part for the upholstery panel and this part is fastened to the front of the body different. If you have a true 25 it is riveted to metal front part that is by the firewall.

Here's a pic of the driver's side piece on the 1925 touring body that I bought a while back. :-)

This older post has a very good picture of the late '25 all steel riser, it's straight and has two tabs that secure the lower edge of the cardboard kick panel.

What you have is not for a '25! Take a look at the photo Mark posted above. Notice the tabs to hold the cardboard kick panels in place.

A '25 body has no wood in the cowl area, it is a very different animal than the bodies made before '25. And of course, the '26 started a whole new body construction.
