Re: Heater to firewall

As a previous poster said, I leave that gap there. There is more then enough heat to come into the cabin, and it lets fresh air mix with the heated air.

Smile Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

It wasn't that bad.

Brand new leaf springs front and rear along with rebuilt shocks all around helps make the ride nice and comfy.
