1935 ford roof insert

I'm posting this hard to find info in hope of helping other 35 owners who want to replace their roof fabric. Instructions direct you to staple the material to the wood tack strip around the roof. However, unlike 32-34s, there is no such tack strip on 35s. The roof fabric was held in place by a rubber strip pressed into the outer channel of the roof. These strips are available from Dick Spadaro Early Ford. No holes need to be drilled. Too late for me.

I had a 35 humpback sedan and that roof insert was missing when I purchased the car. Since I was making the car into a street rod, I had a metal fabricator make a piece to fit in and blend flush with the roof. Yes, that was a real pain to fit and weld in without warping the metal as well. Come to think of it, everything was difficult to line up!!! The 35 is Ford's oddball experiment between the 34 and 36 as well.
