Re: What Made You Choose The Model A Over the T

My choice wasn't to choose between an A or a T. I wanted an A, and that's what I got.

Re: The Titans That Built America

They also use really stupid looking phones that are not only not period correct but way off on the looks. (I am also a phone collector)

Re: seat spring question

If you need individual springs, Snyder's sells individual coils. I bought some to replace broken springs in my seat when I reupholstered.

Re: '30 Tudor Rear Seat Belt Center Anchor Ideas

I used the spare tire mount bolt. I got one at the hardware store that was 1/4 or 1/2 inch longer to accommodate the extra spacing. I used a grade 8 bolt.

Re: Been siting up since Covid, now what?

I would not shoot any WD 40 under the dist cap. Before doing anything check to see if you are getting any spark at all, and if not at lest get it to spark.
