Re: Preferred Vendor for parts?

I only buy from Berts. Not only same day shipping, no handling charges, but if you have a question, they know model As inside and out. That's all they do, for 40 years

Re: Transport recommendations

I used Amerifreight, a broker out of Florida to transport my 30 pickup from Ohio to Oregon. I was very happy with them. I dealt with a Richard Jernigan.

Re: Cowl Lites

It depended on the model. Some models had two bulb headlights, with parking lights in the headlights. Others had cowl lights, and single bulb headlights.

It's not too bad, but you need to find a spring spreader you can borrow.

Or you could do it the way I found my pickup drag link, put the cotter pin in, then screw the plug down on it snug. Yep, leaked grease like crazy and had a serious death wobble! How it never fell off...

Re: How much paint?

Brent,
After your comment about low solids content and coverage, I was blown away by how well the Nason paint

Re: Pitnam arm instalation questin

Do you have the end plug in the correct amount? I turn it in until all the slack is out, then one more full turn.

I have forks for my tractor so it was easy. If I didn't I think I would just get about 4 buddies and lift it. Four to lift, and one to block it. But if you are taking the body to a body shop you...

Re: Sidemount Spare Installation Problem

If the spare squeeks in the mount, just do what some idiot prior to me did with my pickup, smear about a half tube of grease in the well!
It took forever to get that crap out.

I am used to using urethanes, but it's been more than a few years. But as I recall it only took about a gallon to paint a Semi tractor.

How much paint?

Anyone painted a 30-31 CCPU lately, that can give me an idea of how much paint needed for the Cab and Bed, two coats, single stage paint? Totally dismantled.
