Re: Off topic: Buick woodie wagon

You no doubt know that Buicks were not made by Ford and since this is the "Ford Barn" don't expect this thread to live very long. But while you wait it's demise any pics?

Re: Burned '32 PU came to new home today

I'll echo Mart's comment. Thought etch and epoxy don't like each other? You're making quick strides!

Re: Temp Gauge Stuck on Hot

Kind of what I was thinking. Perhaps the needle pegged itself and it was pegged too long and damaged the spring. Can those parts be transferred from one gauge cluster to another?
