John (oldford2),
You have a right condenser. I gave you one when we first set you up. Thank you for the kind words.

Re: '47 trim screw set- not Phillips

According to every thing I seen written, Ford changed to Phillips screws in the 1946 models. 1942 was the last year they used slotted screws.

Re: Types of 6 volt sealed beam headlights

Like Supereal I instead used a relay controlled by the headlight switch. Use 10g wire for the feed then to dimmer switch. Works great and bulbs are brite. easy and fast job.

Re: engine colors

The 1942 was green at least mine is. Maybe because of the war they had left over 41 engines. The few 42's I have seen, they have been green. You don't see that many.
