    Curtains can certainly make a roadster more comfortable in cold weather.
    Here's some, what do you have? 2017-65th-detroit-autorama-extreme-basement-traditional-rods-69.jpg 272799_10150216459241813_7964049_o.jpg DSC04178.JPG DSC07132.JPG DSC08889.JPG DSC08960.JPG DSC09623.JPG DT1932_Ford_Convertible-35.jpg

    they certainly can be a help but, be sure to store and clean properly or can make visibility very limited

  3. Do you have anymore pictures of your '27 T RPU and its side curtains? I was wondering how to have functioning side curtains on my personal '27 T RPU, given they don't have door handles on the doors. Well done, by the way!

    When my RPU was at the Rod Tops shop in Michigan I also had them do a set of side curtains along with the top. :cool:

    They store behind rear seat and are fugly copies of OEM side curtain. The tub fogs up when I use them as I've no heater or demister however don't fog up if I leave driver's side off. The wind wings deflect most of the water and keep me dry.. I still need to finish the strip above front header panel as water gets in there. It's only been 15yrs+ now so I'll get around to it one day? :rolleyes:

    I’ve found when I had side curtains on my old tub rear and side vision was horrendous. Kept me warm in winter though. Will be doing some for my roadster once I get the roof sorted

  10. Heck,I never even had a top for my roadster,no top,no side curtains,no wipers,no heater and no brains.

    If I ever build another roadster I will incorporate all of the above. :D HRP

    I got a complete set for the cost of shipping for my roadster but have yet to put them on.
    Not sure how getting in and out works with them on?
