I have the rail how I have the correct location
Perfect timing, Colin! I`ve got the robe rail for my 1912 and ready to mount---Thanks for posting---paul
I had the same thought when I saw it in the 1912 ford times. Kind of a yahoo moment. Cheers Colin
Thanks! I am ready to start on mine.
For what it's worth, my wooden strips weren't where they were supposed to be.
If that happens to you, you can use metal certs to install a metal threaded collar in the hole and then screw in a machine screw to hold that part of the robe rail (sounds more difficult than it is!). I ended up doing that on all 4 holes of the robe rail. It's been 14 years and it's still holding fine (even tho some people think it's a "hand rail" to help them get up!).
Found at better hardware stores.
Today I untacked the top of the front seat, all original never been apart, and marked the wood structure. With our body, the instructions are correct, the most important one being floor to rail height. On our body,centering the rail hits the wood perfect. The rail I have is original from another T so I'm guessing the wide should be correct.
