Rounded roof corners
Help I got an E mail from someone about uncut roof corners I got at the last Barth GTG at the 4-H fair grounds. I seem to have lost it and since I got 2 sets of corners I would like to get a set to the owner that had his dented or smashed at the body shop. I think I will keep the other set. I know what it is like to have a problem with our older Barths, . We were taking grand kids to Turkey Run State park earlier this month and the steering gear broke while making a turn at a red light. A long tow and several days finding parts made for happy campers once again. I think we don't need 2 sets of spares soooo.

Thanks John for checking in here. In this topic is the request for the corner.
If I recall correctly one bowl is good for all four of the corners on our Barthmobiles. Does anyone know if the one bowl has four specific corners. Example: front left will not work on front right. In any event I would like to purchase a corner for my Barth. One of my corners is dented. I will check to see which corner is dented in on my Barth.
I would bet Craig would know if one fourth of the bowl will fit any corner or each corner is specific.

I could use a passenger rear corner. It is not real bad and does not leak. If you would be so kind I would purchase just the passenger rear corner from the whole bowl. Mine does not leak yet, it is just dented. If a member here has a leaky corner, you would need it more than me. My Regency has a fiberglass front, so the front corners would not apply to my Barth.
Craig, would I be correct to say that one "bowl" would be enough corners for two Regencies?

Remember, The curvature of a Regency is different than other Barths!!

From what I remember you can get 2 left rears or 2 right rear depending on stamping. I had wondered how those corners were made before seeing those stampings. Lots of waist left over. These are for Regal/Breakaway style roofline. Sorry Keven.

Thanks Nick for the reminder on the roofline. Doorman also thanks for pointing the roofline curvature out.
I actually had the information in my library {brain}, but the pages must have been stuck together. The older I get the more the pages stick together.

Just back from UP and Canada. Looking at the bowls I have it may be enough to do all four corners on an older Barth as mine has a fiberglass section from above the windshield. I have two of these and both are in the original condition unpainted and un cut. I can,t see me needing them so I would let both of them go for a donation to Barhmobile.com (sent to Bill) Now the catch We are leaving again for Wisconsin for family reunion thru Monday. Will look at site Tuesday. Anyone is free to say what they are worth. All who wander are not lost. JKB

My rig is still sitting in the repair shop in limbo waiting to see if someone can repair the damage that was sustained at the facility. I,m still very interested in the corners if they are available.
Thank you,

Passing on some info about my 85 MCC Regency. Both front corners were metal and the right rear was metal and the left rear was fiberglass. I guess at one time the left one was replaced.

Maybe we better send a posse of 10 members in to see what happened to Sloop. Who is volunteering for the posse?
