Re: 1936 Ford Grille Questions

The one piece grilles are best for plating. The multi piece ones cannot be reliably plated as the chrome will not flow into the gaps between the parts.

A couple of you wanted some pictures of my flathead.

Re: Coker classic radials.

Thanks for the positive reports everyone. I really appreciate your help.
I feel much more confident now.
Some people just seem to want to bag everything, maybe they are just jealous.

Coker classic radials.

I have just bought a set of Coker Classic 600 16 tires for my 36 coupe.
Already Im hearing that they are not all that good.
Does anyone have something good to say about them?

Re: 36 hubcap restoration

36 hubcap restoration

I've seen the answer before on here but I can't find it now.
What's the best way to get the stainless covers back on to my newly painted 36 hubcaps.

Re: '36 Radio switch

The gears are in the ratio of 3.4 : 1. so the big gear on the radio tuning shaft would be 34t and small gear on cable would be 10 or close to that.

Re: '36 Radio switch

Hi Steve
I did it this way in my 36.
I used a "Pyle" brand radio I found on ebay that still uses knobs for tuning and volume. It also has USB connection.

'36 seatbelts

Has anyone successfully fitted lap/sash seatbelts into a 36 5w coupe. If so please give me some hints on how to do it as it seems tricky using the original bench seat.
Thanks

Re: 5window 36 parcel shelf

I think the 35 and early 36 coupes had a fixed seat back, as does mine, but in Australia there are many things that are different from the US models.
We have difficulty knowing what is correct and I...
