Re: Shocks

Are these friction shocks the same style you would see on a 1920'-1930's dirt track race car? Sure would like to see a photo of them on an A. Bob

Re: Installing the Hub Caps on 1928 and 1929 Model A's

I add a bit of clear silicone calk, just 3-4 good dabs of it. I also like to index the Ford Script with the valve stem on top. Bob

Re: seat belt photo request - 1931 slant windshield

Please don't think a closed Model A is somehow safer than an open one. This is how a 1931 Slant Window Fordor looks with the tin removed. Bob

Re: Model a cowl differences

They are the same as far as I know. Is the sub rail area really rusty or just the outer cowl panels? Replacing the cowl panels rather that the whole cowl may be the way to go. Bob

Re: What is the best way to sell my Model A

I think the eBay "fee" is a flat $25.00 or so, not bad for World Wide exposure IMO. Bob

Re: Hershey airplane question...

Would the FAA or whoever certifies the airworthyness of a restoration allow that original fuselage to be used, or do you need to build a new one using the original as a pattern? Bob
