Also sew a piece of headliner fabric to the windlace to cover up the area of the pillar next to the windshield. I have a model "A" coming in to my shop in about a week if you can wait that long to see some pictures. You need a 3/4" welt foot on your sewing machine to sew windlace with 1/2" sponge rod. Sewing it is 10 times faster than gluing it, and with far better quality. I'll post a picture tomorrow of some windlace all sewn up.
Thanks for the info - Yes I can wait for the pictures of the Model A. The info you are giving me is helping out a lot. Now I don't feel like I am running around in the dark.

Thanks - Jerry

windlace

The front windlace was originally held in place by what I call screw nails( a nail with threads). If you look you'll see the holes. Or many times the nails are still in there. The part by the windshield is covered by a metal molding and bottom is covered by the kickpanels. I usually also glue it to keep in place better.

Wanted Model A experts

I am about to install windlace in my 28 Model A and ran across a problem. The top and back of the door poses no problem but there is no wood to attach the windlace to on the front. Now what?
