Re: Possible Ignition issues in a 41

Re: Possible Ignition issues in a 41

Re: 50 ford woodie chassis finally in derusticator!

Its all about suspension in the solution, and the amount of anodes you have to one panode (part being cleaned). I have four old truck springs out of my old f450 as the anodes.
