Re: TT rims

The boss around your old valve stem sat in a keeper in your felloe to prevent the rim from spinning on it. Your new rims don't appear to be TT but should work okay as long as everything fits up as stock. You should weld in a similar boss on the new rims to act in the same manner as the originals.

Re: 24-27 C-cab Roof

Also, the roof does show the roof slats but it is minor as long as the roof material is tight. I expect that they showed some originally too but don't show up well in period photos. They certainly did not have thick padding. An overstuffed roof on a C cab doesn't look good.

Re: 24-27 C-cab Roof

Below are a couple of links to previous roof discussions. Keep in mind that there are two different C cab roofs. There are also two different side curtain designs. The early low roof with square window curtains are the minority. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/565546.html?1440591089 http...

Re: Using AA rims for a TT

Tom, I think that you'll find that the inside edge of an AA rim (where the rim seats on the wheel) has a sharper corner that a TT rim. This prevents it from going on the wheel the whole way. I had a nice AA rim that I was going to use on my TT until I found this problem. I don't know how many AA rim...
