Hood lace suppliers

Post by bsheahan » Tue Nov 17, 2020 2:17 pm

I am looking for hood lace for my 1924 Diamond T truck. The rear needs something 3/16 x 3/4 either flat or beaded. It is riveted on the 0.210 diameter holes. The front needs a 1/4 inch cord fed though 5/16 holes in the radiator casting. Can anyone recommend a supplier? I will be fabricating a new hood this winter and want to the lace ahead of time so I can make it fit correctly.

Thanks

Bob

Bob,

Restoration Supply Company has a lot of good stuff. Page 51.

Yes I get quite a bit of stuff from them but they don't have what I need.

Thanks

You might consider using leather. It is available in many thicknesses from leather supply and tack shops.

I rechecked the fit of the hood and decided the 3/16 lace that Restoration supply has will work for the cab end. I found some 1/4 inch dia cord in McMaster Carr that I should be able to color black that will work for the radiator end.

Thanks for the feedback
