Re: Could It Be :The rare 1940 Ford Deluxe Electric Clock

BroncoDan,
I'd studied this clock thoroughly.

Re: The Ford Books Fastener Guide

Guys, I am in need of a nice photo of an authentic ash tray (either side will do) that's installed in a '40 deluxe Tudor sedan.
Anyone?

Thanks!

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Michael,
The Nason is simply that - Nason. No affiliation with DuPont that I am aware of.

I've been using DuPont Chromabase on the sheet metal for the last six cars or so. Typically four coats of...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Ya know, you'd made a comment in an earlier post that "I am not alone".

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I too have installed later gear sets in to early (a '34 and a '35) cases. I never found it necessary to do any machining.

Yep, just a tad OCD.
Your words are too kind and undeserved.
