I'm placing all the "dot studs on the car for the tonneaus and the body gut filled in the last one. I'm looking for someone to give me a location via measurement the foremost one on the door.
Thanks in advance

You may want to offer some detail on the car (e.g. commission number - at least all but the last 2 digits would work) as the location is not the same throughout the range.

Four years ago The Roadster Factory had a page included in one of their catalogues that showed that the front peg on the door has been located in two different locations. Some cars had that peg at 1&1/2" from the capping while some were at 2". There was no commission number shown for the change . Just that there were two different locations noted. The page also noted that the peg located at the top of the quarter panel behind the door changed at TS41712.
If you already have a tonneau cover purchased you might want to check for the best location for that front peg.

Charley,

I think that this TRF explanation on Lift-the-dot peg locations must be what you are referring to http://trf.zeni.net/wc/specials11.20/index.php?menu=&page=9

And I don't believe that TRF explanation covers all cases. According to it, my TS13571L should have the same stud locations that TS39781LO did; but they are different.

Yes, both cars had/have the original doors; and no signs of the stud holes ever having been moved. But even the door skins are different, since TR3 didn't have exterior door handles, and the 3A had both the handles and plinths stamped into the sheet metal for them.

Also, up to TS28825, the side curtains fit over the LTD studs; while the later ones did not.
