Restoration of my 1930 Pierce-Arrow convertible sedan has proceeded slowly, but now I am ready to install the window frames, which were made several years ago.. Now I need the window regulator channels which attach to the bottoms of the frames. I will also need some flat stock, 1 inch wide, to spot weld to the side of the regulator channel and the bottom part of the window frame. See the photo below.
I am wondering if anyone can suggest a possible supplier for these regulator channels or stock from which I can cut them. The cross section is shown in the attached drawing. Please let me know if you can suggest a source for this kind of window regulator channel stock. Thanks.
I seem to remember that Model A Ford Tudor rear quarter ones can be adapted. Worked for me on 1929 Brougham rear quarter windows. Also I suggest Restoration Supply Co in California.
