Default question on wood top kit cross-compatibility

What top wood parts from a car kit will also fit a '30-31pickup top?

Are the header and bows the same? What about the wood piece above the doors....same as a Tudor?

I ask because I may have located wood patterns for a sedan, but cannot find wood patterns for my 31 closed cab pickup. Would like to make my own wood kit (or most of it, where possible!). I have great woodworking tools and plenty of experience. Very little of my pickup's top is good enough to trace my own patterns.

PS I have searched this topic until my eyes burn. If I missed something already covered, forgive me.

Since the 30-31 Tudor & CCPU use the same doors,perhaps the front 1/2 of the Tudor wood kit will replace most of the wood in the PU.Maybe someone whose tried this will chime in.

Have you tried calling the guys at fordwood? They make wood kits and should be able to give you an answer.
