WTB: correct roller for the aluminum timer used in 1913

Just as the title says, probably wouldn't mind two of them so I have a spare. It would be a huge help to me if you take PayPal. If you don't, I can send a US bank draft which are safer than personal cheques and I'm in Canada. Thanks in advance! Here is a photo of what I think I need:

Re: Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

A little more progress....too cold to tack to the bows. Classtique left the Murphy fasteners off of the bottom row so I could match them to the car's original fastener positions. I wonder why they put them on in such a manner?

Re: Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

Thanks again everyone! I still have all the original side curtains including the ones in the old picture, but they're only good for copying. They're pretty beat up and petrified. That's a project for another winter!

Re: Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

Had to correct the top pad on the driver's side, the pic was taken before I did that. These projects require a gazillion checks and rechecks. So far, all the dimensions are really good. I've been using a pictorial guide from Royce Peterson's website and it's been a huge help, with a lot of time sav...

Re: Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

Thanks guys for your input! I'm going to leave it off but may take Keith's advise and see if it can me made "removable" without messing up the rest too much.
Larry, thankfully, Clastique's great top kit has a better sized window! Everything is going fairly well and yes, I have no finger pads left!

Re: Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

Here are the top sockets locating bushings for lack of a better description, they're quite thin, and not like later ones which are much fatter looking, and the original material over the front bow if this helps.

In this picture of the car from 1929, you can see fairly clearly there was no flap. I see the top straps running right to the front bow. Even though the car is 16 years old in this picture, what are the chances that piece was removed?

Question regarding details of top installation on my '13 Touring

I'm installing a new top on my early Canadian '13. It had a new top sometime in the past and the original "top covering" was still on the bows up until today. Because of the amount of tack holes in the wood needing plugging, I decided it was best to replace the front bow top material covering. As fa...

Re: 1912-1913 Hubcaps

I used gloss black paint and a very tiny brush, then some 0000 steel wool to bring out a little better definition than my shaky hand would allow, and to give a sort of matte look you get like the anodizing gives. I need to correct all the little mistakes......
