I do not know where to get the Top Bows I think you are going to have to make them yourself. The best that I can remember T or A will not fit since the wood used is not curved like Dodge also I think Dodge bodies are wider. Good Luck

If you live close to an Amish community a buggy shop can make them. If not, I'm sure there's a utube on how to make a steam chamber out of PVC pipe. A friend made one to bend his.

There is a gentleman in the Tuoalome (SP?), California area who builds new top bows and sockets. Probably has a pattern for yours too, which is sounds like you will need. I see him at swap meets around here, but don't have his name nor contact info. Maybe Google it??

Ah, I have been informed that the guy I was thinking of only does wheels, BUT the guy who does Top Bows is located in Auburn - name is John Boorinakis (John's Enterprises), and he has done DB top bows.
Hope this helps!
