Re: Correct seats?

The front metal frame and slides are specific to a slant
I think all the wood frames and springs are available from many vendors
Might check with Berts as the front seat metal is not reproduced

Re: Correct seats?

I read this as frames and wood. Are you speaking of fabric?

Re: Model A Shock

Not a model a for sure
Do a search on V8 for Andy Fallandes (?) for V8 info
V8s can be tough to get apart and restore

Re: Model A Shock

Several comments
Those have fine threads, is the cover stripped?
Pipe wrench not good, use a good strap wrench
if not stripped you may have to use some heat on the cover
Drain and leave plug out

With the script and non-indented cover its likely 28-early 29

Re: Pick hammer dent removal

You mentioned “lead”
