Re: Rubber U Joint seal

Century-Hotrod on EBay is where I purchased mine. I’ve gone about 100 miles since installing the kit. So far it hasn’t leaked a drop, and I’m using John Deere Cornhead grease for the universal joint.

Re: Modify floor boards

I just ran across that article by Jim Moss in the July-August 1993 issue last week. The previous owner of my coupe gave me about 20 years worth of the "Restorer" magazine. Lots of great reading!
