Re: My Dad's car after WWII

Regarding the appearance of right hand drive. The film negative could have been flipped over when the print was developed. It would appear as left hand drive if the negative was flipped back.

Re: 37 grommets

My restored 37 does not have a grommet on either side. The 37 restoration book doesn't mention grommets there either. The tar-like coated fabric conduit protects the wires very well.

Re: thread size on early Ford grease fitting

I just use a 1 1/2" long needle grease gun tip to pump JDCH grease into the steering box. The needle allows you to get the grease into the tight spaces.
