Does anyone have or know where I can get the dimensions of the Cowl wood frame rails for a 17-23 touring? Parts 157 & 158 on this picture.

Ryan do you have the rest of the wood that the wood frame rails attach to? If you do you may have to use that as a guide to take any measurements. I restored a 21 Touring and the rails fit with a little adjustment here and there. I had to use a belt sander to get a good fit.
I used a kit from Fordwood. After learning a few things about Fords body building practices I found out that as many as 5 body builders were used to build Fords bodies. Some were a little different here and there but generally the same. Something to remember when buying a kit for the T's in the 17-22 era. Good luck and maybe someone on the forum has the dimensions.

I have a 1960 Mat Miller drawing of said rails and he claims they are 15-20 Unfortunately there are no measurements the drawings are full size and you have to copy them. There are many compound curves and it would be difficult to assign numbers.
