Re: 30-31 Open Car lower Windshield Stanchions

There were brass ones but the later ones are steel. Steel ones more easily restored IMHO
The brass ones were earlier, that's why they are likely on a 30 car.

Re: 32 Cabriolet rumble seat gap ?

Are the rumble stops present and set correctly?
IE is the lid at the appropriate angle? On a Model A, the gap does widen if the lid goes “deeper” into the opening

A natural succession
I think Roy would be proud and feel his legacy is in good hands

Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

And what about Western Auto? They had a huge line of A parts
I don’t remember seeing/buying but old timers used to identify sheet metal
including fenders as being “Western Auto”

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

That is a very interesting article. Being partially in the resto business none of it surprises me. What often does surprise (or startles) me is the cost of materials and products!

Re: POR 15 Gas Tank Sealer

Leaded or unleaded is not the issue I don’t think
The problem has been ethanol
I don’t think leaded gas is legal except for some aviation fuels

Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I’ve seen all of them fail to some degree
What is the guarantee? Send you another quart?
The problem is the ethanol gas....mostly
Run 100% gas
