Re: Fuel Tank Purchase

Check your gas cap. You may have rust plugging the little vent hole. Take the cap off and open the petcock and see if the glass bowl fills up.

Re: Moulding Gray Paint

Try an auto body paint store. They can usually mix it and put in a rattle can for you. Works like a charm.

Re: Paint situation

Hate to sound like a Debbie Downer but don't rush to buy wax if you catch my drift. I'm not a painter and the chemistry has changed so very much. Think long and hard as to what you really want out of...

Re: Cold Weather Shifting

Had this happen a couple of times up here in Tacoma. I found just letting the car warm up before heading out works. Like 20 minutes or so.

Re: Fine point judging...a simple question

Just a general comment. I'm 70 years old and bought my first Hot Rod Magazine in 1961. That being said, many don't care for Rat Rods but I feel they came about by increasing demand to build ultra...

Re: Cabriolet Top

Call Clastique in Minnesota. My understanding is they are getting backlogged. Our club is currently restoring a cabbie for ACM here in Tacoma. We have ordered the interior and I believe the top kit...

Re: Reproducing Door Panel Retainer Nails ( A-35704-A )

Not sure if I'm helping here. Are you after the dimple look? I just checked CS Osborne and their chart shows the dimpled style. I'm not sure of the head diameter but it looks like what you have in...

Re: 29 Tudor windlace question

Google Hills saddlery. I just looked at some 3/8 tube rivets for you. Our local fastener company calls them sex rivets. Worth a look. I used them to attach the tack strips to my Tudor backrests. They...

Re: 29 Tudor rear interior side panel-below side window

Fred, Yes the curve need to be there. Not sure how Ford did it but I have seen a brad put in the curve toward the very end. The backrest presses against the curve to hold it there. Thats why you...

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

The top sill has to come out. The top windlace glues to the sill. The rear gets stapled to the door pillar top to bottom. The front slips into the channel at the forward edge of the door and as it...

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Re: I Need Photos - Electric Windshield Wiper

There is currently a very nice unit available in either 6 or 12v. Roughly $290. Look up Berts Model "A"parts online for a picture. There are several available but this is the best imho.
