Re: Repair of Soft Wood

Agree and disagree with Brent. Agree that a filler is not the way to go. Disagree that its ok to use such a product on a house. Then again I have made a decent living out of repairing rot on...

Re: A New Winter House for My "A"

I would welcome the cats (and im a dog person) to keep the mice under control. Ventilation underneath is not a bad idea, it will keep the rot at bay, but you could install something solid at the...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

ps, that sounds like a less than delightful experience. I think I would have told him to leave and call AAA and request another tow truck. At least you took the high road and gave him a tip though,...

Re: A New Winter House for My "A"

Good Deal! Nice little car barn. I cant imagine the electric will be all that much (once insulated).

Re: transport

I shipped a rear end from MD to MO a year or so ago. The buyer made all of the arrangements but I am pretty sure he used fed ex cargo, or something like that. I had it attached to a pallet pretty...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I hear ya! First thing I learned a long time ago, they asked me if I was in a safe place, I was, but my reply to them was that I wasnt and I was scared to death. They got there fairly quick.

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I suppose the answer is yes, AAA covers the person holding the policy, not the vehicle. I broke down last summer in my dd. I did not realize I was on the auto renewal program and my policy was...

Re: this is what I drug home yesterday- not Ford

Great looking car! I wish I was a bit more liquid and could help you with your overcrowded A situation!
AND, it looks like an old mill in the background, there must be a crick close by.

Re: Tim to sell the old girl

Yes, Facebook market place is very active. I think it may be more localized but is still a venue. I have sold some car parts on there very quickly. Usually get replies within hours of a posting.

Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

I love it! Great videography. As good as your trip to the market. I like that you did this one in colour.

Re: Car cover question

I would recommend California Car Cover as well. I have one and love it. I got the middle of the road version ( 70's car, it was under $300). Fit is perfect, and the material seems to be top quality....

Re: Paint recommendations

Are you painting the car yourself? You should find a local paint supplier and check out their supply. If you are satisfied go with them. That way you will have everything local when needed and some...

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

The subs in Groton are very interesting as well. I couldnt believe how cramped they were!
I saw a bumper sticker one time in the Norfolk area that I thought was pretty funny.

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

Interesting. I think I read the museum exhibits themselves were moved to Kansas City, it must be the WWI museum referred to. I know they had quite a collection. I know they had a vehicle used by...

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

Looks interesting and close to the Marine Corps Museum.
There was a great museum years ago at Aberdeen Proving Ground. I believe they closed it down and moved everything to the Kansas area. I wonder...

Re: Dying your door panels etc ?

Again with a more 'modern car', if you are changing/correcting the colour of vinyl I highly recommend SEM products. I have been using them for years with great success.

Re: Andy Hardy Movies

I love all of the Andy Hardy movies. He also had an A roadster that had stripes painted all over it. I always thought it would be cool to have one made just like it! There was an episode when he...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

I read an article maybe in old cars awhile ago that showed the figures for Ford vs Chevy sales numbers. Almost every year after the model T, Chevy bested Ford. Every few years Ford had the upper hand...

I have no knowledge on the said kit but it does sound a bit outrageous for the sum of its parts. To the OP's original question, that same fabric is still probably WORTH $15-$20 a yard! I wouldnt have...

I am about 45 minutes from there, but honestly I am not in the PI business. My wife does know one that they use for their work. I can have her check but in all likelyhood he will charge a fee....

Re: Carlisle

Not necesarily, they need to follow the state's guidelines and I would imagine at some level Hershey is privately owned as well. Having said that.....

Re: Garage lights

A 4ft LED fixture is pretty cheap. I bought a 10 pack and they ended up costing $14. per light. Much easier taking an old light down and putting up a new one. Nothing needed re-wired. I saw some 4ft...
