    I would like to post a few words about bodyman john hagen’s merc convertible, it was a medium metallic blue, a favorite color of his maybe a special mix that he painted all his cars, or so he told me. Another point about his craftsmanship and attention to detail was the stainless moulding around the mercury windshield was chopped and then welded together and repolished, these kind of things mattered to him.

    I am new here, so I am not certain how to post here and/or where.

    We are currently working on the convertible top of our ’47 Ford, and even tho we took pics before disassembling, we now can’t remember which way the rear wood bow is to be turned. In other words, does the tapered edge for the rear bow go down?  We think it does but really need to know for certain.

    Thank you. Bill

    So I got the flipper caps back from Escondido plating and they did a great job. The look I am going for is coming together. I also placed what I believe to be a after market Fenton 41 chrome dash trim. I haven’t been able to find any info on this piece and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.

    Those Single Bar Flipper Hubcaps look really great Paul.

    As for the dash trim.
    I know that Eastern Auto Supply offered those in their catalog and ads since at least 1949, but most likely already shortly after the car came on the market. I might have seen similar parts being produced and sold by other companies. Not sure about that though.

    Thanks so much rik,the caps were a great score from paul garland in sacremento he also did the mods to make them fit the wide five wheel. And the info on the dash trim is reaky great.Now i can put a time frame to this piece. I love the trim it really adds to the interior in a big way.I had to hunt for the clock as my 41 didnt come with one.
