Re: Installing Modern shocks

Use either a steel or fibre self locking nut, they work on airplanes so should be OK for our old Fords. Steel is usually use when there is heat involved.

Re: 1936 gunmetal grey PPG code

Do you have a sample of the color, like a door, or fender, etc. Most paint stores can scan it and come up with a match. The computer will generate a formula for them to use.

Re: Brake Fluid

As said Dot 5 does not attract but water still gets in the system and settles in the low points of the lines etc so can still cause rust.

Re: 1947 Ford Coupe wiper conversion

I plan to use Newport conversion in my 46. I think maybe you can't use the Cowl Vent if you use their conversion. Maybe paul2748 can answer that.
