  • Body: 56 studebaker wagon WINDLACE question---May pertain to all 1950's Studes

    Hello .. I have after market windlace that isn't quite wide enough to slide under the body's pinch tangs that hold the windlace in place, and fit properly
    ... that said, is there a windlace available that matches the stock width SIZE , OR, does one simply have to modify the modern replacement ?? thanks

    Sew strips of heavy material onto the verge. I have also cut stripsr of cheap indoo/outdoor carpeting and glued it on with hot melt glue. Worked great.

      Yes the Studebaker New Interior reproduction providers sew a "Tack Strip" onto the mounting tab to widen it for All Post war Studebakers. They do sell the Modified stuff ready to install in the correct Length for each Model.

        Look closely at your old windlace.there is a peice of welting cord sewn next to the robber. this lays in a groove in the body flange and helps prevent pullout.i have had to add this cord next to the rubber body and a strip of canvas to reach the hold down tabs,also bend each tab slightly so the point actually holds the strip and doesnt just clamp it.
