Default Re: 1936 Convertible Top Irons & hardware

On my 36 roadster, I just went through and rebuilt all of my top irons since the top was being replaced. I drilled out all the worn pivot points and pressed in oil-lite bronze bushing. I replaced the rivets with (1/4Ē-20) barrel nuts from McMaster-Carr. The 4 bolts that hold the top irons to the body were originally shoulder bolts and were worn. I ordered aircraft bolts from Aircraft Spruce (AN5C-6A) and used bronze oil-lite bushings for the shoulder on the bolts. The top now works smooth just like it was new. I donít think there are any reproductions for top irons for 35-36. I hope this helps with your project.
