Mine have disappeared along with a phantom woodgrainer. I sent them to him 2 years ago and after a lot of iffy communication there is no sign of him or my frames. I removed all the parts to them except for the chromed piece that the vent window latches too. The attached photo is what I am looking for. If anyone can recommend a competent and capable person to recreate the original two-patterned grain please share that info too.

Thank you so much,

PS. I am posting this in general discussion, but if it belongs in the classifieds please let me know and I will repost.

I did a quick scan of the 2014 Club Roster (can't ever seem to put my hands on the '15...) and only see two Club Coupes listed as parts cars for '46-'49. If you have a roster, you might look up the listing of the cars by year and then contact the owners to see if they are willing to share parts.

As far as woodgraining, I provide that service, and would be happy to visit with you when the parts materialize. There are a number of reputable companies out there. Grain-It Technologies (I use their system....) provides a directory of woodgrain shops on their website, and you might find one near you that you can actually walk in to the business and look the people in the eye rather than doing everything by long distance correspondance.

Here's my woodgrain page.

It's supposed to be fun!
