Re: hammer size

One think to remember is that there is no "from the factory" depth. I have seen stamped numbers that were very deep and easily readable to numbers that were almost unreadable. I guess if the guy...

Re: Painting polished stainless steel

Even with self etch primer the paint will eventually peel. As deuce mentions bead blasting is probably the easiest to get complete coverage for the primer to bond to.

Re: '32 standard roadster project - some further progress

It's refreshing to see a standard roadster. It seems like every '32 that came from the factory had dual side mounts. Just like the Model A roadsters when they were popular, everyone had dual side...

Re: 36 Ford Roadster Side Curtains

I know it's not a profitable business, making upholstery kits for antique Ford's, but I wish someone would pick up where LeBaron Bonney stopped. I for one miss them.

Re: aligning a 48 hood

Like fordor41 states, every time you move one area, it affects another. If you read the article in the V-8 Times as I suggested you can get a better understanding as how it all works.

Re: 46 woody door skins

No, but It's a real pain, because you need to literally bend them to fit into the mortise. You need to trim them a little smaller to get them to fit.
