    Try Presige T-Birds. If they don't know the sizes let me know I will measure mine. There are at least two different dia. in the kit. The way they work. Some have a carter pin on the end and the others have a slot in the frame and a pin that slides through the frame and locks them in. They are on the expensive side but this is the going rates for Corvetts and T-birds. We Stud people are really lucky on the prices of some of our parts. I may have a couple old rusty ones you can have?? I have to go look and see if I still havr them.

      Now that I see which one you need, that's another issue. I rechromed those arms twice and to do that one has to waste those pins. I found a shoulder bolt for mine because they have to thread in to a nut and also be able to be used smoothly without threads in between the frame and that arm. I will see if I can find the same ones. Are you going for simple reliable use, or concours, Allen?

        Hey Dave,

        I just want Caroline to be able to put the top up and down and not have her call me to rescue her during a rain storm. As far as Concours is concerned it's for those trailer queens and the guys that don't drive'em or fix'em, if you know what I mean.

        Was this shoulder bolt you used a nice fit? If you can find one I would really appreciate it, Spring is just around the corner and she's itchin at the bit.
