Re: AA plumbers truck or is it an express truck?

Quite a few years ago I bought at auction an 28 AA closed cab, original paint, 28K miles, long running boards, rear fenders, spoke wheels etc. But with no rear body. It had been a stake sided flat...

Re: Sand blaster

For a home setup, the most important thing (other than your lungs) is the compressor - needs to be min 20 cfm. After that you need a cabinet siphon feed (I use glass beads/used silica mixture) for...

Re: Where to find Tudor kick panels?

I bought a 3x6 sheet out of a car dealership in the mid 60's but it wasn't the same pattern as the Model A's. But it was close enough for me at the time. They told me that it had been there for 10...

Re: Where to find Tudor kick panels?

Use the originals for patterns and make some yourself. This is a good chance to get creative and not do any harm that is hard to undo.

Re: Worth saving?

You also could also buy the back and 2 side wings (repro) and make that into a open cab pickup. The beds and rear fenders etc are relatively easy to find. Or build a nice pickup length wood flat bed...

Re: Happy Birthday to me....

Sleeve it back to the stock bore. The best running/sounding engines I have heard all have been stock. This only an amateur observation on my part, after having stock engines and one that was 80 over...

Re: 1928 pickup seat backrest removal.

A soft top cab is slightly different than the closed cab pickup. The soft top/open cab has a wooden rail that is bolted to the top of the back metal panel. This piece of wood goes the entire length...

Re: 1928 pickup seat backrest removal.

In its normal installed position - push down on the top of the cushion, in the area of the 2 metal tabs that are bolted to the metal rail at the rear of the cab, and then pull forward and release. At...

Re: tail gate chains

I have always used bicycle inner tube for the chains, but I like the idea of the electrical shrink tubing for the hooks - good one. If you use a chain cover, don't forget the hole in the bottom to...

Re: Hub Caps

Also you can use a little silicone on the inside edge, in the areas you don't bend the tabs over and they will be less prone to rattling. I have heard of one person that used a small "O" ring around...

Re: My 1928 Phaeton

Re: Gas tank storage prior to cleaning / sealing with o2 absorber

Go to a boat shop (probably auto stores also) and get a can of misting oil. It is used to prevent rust in cylinders during storage and is a spray.

Re: Looking for input on purchase with Video

Amateur much older "fix up", probably good sheet metal - At that price, you need to lay eyes on it. If it was in the 7 - 10 K range it would be less of a gamble. This is only an amateur opinion.
