Re: My brother and I picked up a couple 1934 Ford pickups parked in 1956 over the wee

Surprised Bob, "the Duck" or Dennis has not started tooling up for those years of rear fenders. Should be a snap compared to other shapes that get pressed. Seems like a few $$ could be made ?

Man, I'm bleeding to death here through my eye balls. How many times has anybody ever seen 32-34 rear fenders in "cherry" or close to it condition like that ? What a neat pr. of goodies those trucks...

Re: Felt soooo good !

Gary, do you ever drive your car in the rain by chance ? I don't wash this one all the time, It has a good wax job and I usually just run over it with a California duster. We don't have the...

Re: 1934, five window coupe. $?

You might get an idea of how much not to pay if you look at the 5 window body with rust on E Pay for a mere $25.000

Re: Gas Tank

Depending on how big of an access hole you make I think your ability to do a through cleaning would be very limited. Based on what you think you might accomplish with limited access I would probably...

Re: Gas Tank

I was afraid you might ask Tom. (Kidding of course) It can be a bit "tricky" to keep the pieces together. I found it best to clamp a piece of stiff flat steel under one edge and tack it in a few...

Re: Gas Tank

I have cut open several tanks, sandblasted the interior, removed dents and sewn them back together with good luck. I did not take pictures but as I recall a 34 tank has a length wise parallel baffle...

Too often oil changes

I guess this has been talked about before on the "Barn". I need to ask some opinions again. My car was probably not driven more that 100 miles total last year. It has rested in a warm basement all...

Re: Waste of a day.....

Well, according to "Junior Johnson" you can haul 132 gallons of shine in the trunk area of a 40 coupe . so if the spring does not come to where you want in height, that may work for ya ?

Re: Question ?

This is in a 1940 . Did you say the shift hole is there or do you need to cut one in ? Remember, measure several times and cut once !
